Installing HHVM 3.2.0 on CentOS 6.5

HHVM is a virtual machine for Hack and PHP it uses JIT to improve performance. Installation on a less than bleeding edge OS can prove a little challenging. What follows is what I did to get it up and going quickly for our developers in our CentOS 6.5 environment. It may work for you too.

Packages were sourced from two repo's http://yum.gleez.com/ and http://remi.conetix.com.au/

Things boiled down to these 11 packages that were signed and added to our local yum repo:

boost-filesystem-1.54.0-9.el6.x86_64.rpm
boost-program-options-1.54.0-9.el6.x86_64.rpm
boost-regex-1.54.0-9.el6.x86_64.rpm
boost-system-1.54.0-9.el6.x86_64.rpm
boost-thread-1.54.0-9.el6.x86_64.rpm
compat-mysql55-5.5.38-1.el6.remi.x86_64.rpm
hhvm-3.2.0-10.el6.x86_64.rpm
libbson-0.6.6-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
libstdc++48-4.8.2-10.el6.x86_64.rpm
libwebp-0.3.1-2.el6.remi.x86_64.rpm
tbb-4.1-2.20130116.el6.x86_64.rpm

The only "gotcha" was the fact we have postfix installed and it was looking to use mysql-libs and HHVM wanted mysql55-libs to resolve some of it's dependencies. This created some incompatibilities with postfix.

The issue was resolved using compat-mysql55, while there are a few places to find that rpm the only one contained libmysqlclient.so.18.0.0 version of the library that was needed was the Remi site.

If you have mysql55-libs available in your repos then you will need to install the compact library first

yum install compat-mysql55
yum install hhvm

If you don't then you can go right ahead

yum install hhvm
