Enables the powerful SonarPHP analyzer.


First Analysis of a PHP Project

  1. Install SonarQube Server (see Setup and Upgrade for more details)
  2. Install SonarQube Scanner and be sure your can call sonar-scanner from the directory where you have your source code
  3. Install SonarPHP (see Installing a Plugin for more details)
  4. Run your analysis with the SonarQube Scanner by executing the following command from the root directory of the project:

    sonar-scanner -Dsonar.projectKey=xxx -Dsonar.sources=.
  5. Follow the link provided at the end of the analysis to browse your project's quality in SonarQube UI

Further Analyses

Assuming steps 1-3 above have already been completed, you'll want to encapsulate your analysis parameters in a file at the root of your project (see a sample project on GitHub: Then subsequent analyses can simply be run with:



Advanced Usage

With SonarPHP, you can:


PHPDepend, PHPCodeSniffer, PHPMD, PHPUnit


Dependency on external tools has been removed: i.e PHPDepend, PHPCodeSniffer, PHPMD, PHPUnit.

It means that the plugin relies only on the SonarQube rule engine; there is no import of external rule engine results. (PHPUnit reports can still be imported.)

Many PHPMD rules are now offered natively by the plugin. If you think that the plugin is missing some "must have" rules, you are very welcome to send your suggestions to the Community Forums
