I tried to install Alfresco PHP Library and install it on my kubuntu developing box and it’s really very easy to get it running! Instalation procedure for windows is described in Alfresco wiki, but there are some differencies.

To get it running it’s needed to install apache and php:

sudo apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-php5

Then you need to download PHP Library from Sourceforge. After that you can unpack it somewhere; good place is for example /usr/share/php/alfresco-php-library. Now it’s not bad to set virtual directory to that directory. So edit your /etc/apache2/conf.d/alias file and add something like this:

Alias /Alfresco/ /usr/share/php/alfresco-php-library/

<Directory /usr/share/php/alfresco-php-library/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Also including this directory automaticaly (/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini) should be cool:

include_path = „.:/usr/share/php/alfresco-php-library“

Now you need to restart apache:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

And edit configuration file in alfresco-php-library/Examples/config.php.

$repositoryUrl = "http://localhost:8080/alfresco/api";
$userName = "admin";
$password = "admin";

After all that you can try to open web browser and point it to http://localhost/Alfresco/Examples/SimpleBrowse/ and it should work 😎
