How do I load Pheanstalk in PHP?

I am trying to get Pheanstalk to work in PHP, but I cannot load it.

I downloaded the source code from

, I moved src / Pheanstalk to my project directory and then did the following to test.php


use Pheanstalk\Pheanstalk;
$pheanstalk = new Pheanstalk('');


But this gives me the following error:

Fatal error: Class 'Pheanstalk\Pheanstalk' not found in test.php on line 2


How can I use Pheanstalk from a cloned git repository?

I wrote an article on Beanstalk, Beanstalkd, and Pheanstalk;

Check it out: How to Install Beanstalkd and Pheanstalk on Ubuntu

There is a solution to your problem.

1). Install Ubuntu Desktop

or Server

using Virtual Machine


I used Oracle VM VirtualBox

for this example.

Make sure it is installed Bridged Network Connection


Provide a username and password when prompted.

I used:

username: william


2). Start Ubuntu and login

3). Login as superuser

use: sudo su

and enter the superuser password when prompted (mine: 123456);

4). Install Open SSH

and sign in Ubuntu virtual machine

via Putty



use: apt-get install openssh-client

to install the client and then

use: apt-get install openssh-server

to install the server;

five). Install the Apache2

web server

use: apt-get install apache2

now enter the following in your browser:


and your virtual computer ip (mine was


6). InstallMySQL

use: apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql

set MySQL root

user password : 123456 repeat password: 123456

7). InstallPHP5

use: apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt

8). InstallcURL

use: apt-get install curl

nine). InstallComposer

official site:


(Getting Started)

use: curl -s | php

or use: curl -sS | php

now composer .phar should be moved and transformed

use: mv composer.phar /usr/bin/composer

ten). InstallBeanstalkd

use: apt-get install beanstalkd

now, make sure beanstalkd persistent mode is active

ps ax

ps ax | grep beans

find beanstalkd.conf


find beanstalkd.conf

nano /etc/default/beanstalk

uncomment last line in order to save persistent mode to active

eleven). InstallPheanstalk


change directory usage: cd /var/www/html

create a new directory: / var / www / html / pheanstalk_test usage: mkdir pheanstalk_test

change directory to newly created directory using: cd pheanstalk_test

create composer.json file in this new directory using: nano composer.json

write the following data to the file: { "require":{ "pda/pheanstalk":"v3.0.0" } }

and save the file (press Ctrl + X, press Y, press ENTER)

use: composer update

now vendor folder data should start loading

or use: git clone

examples: how to put data on a tube / s

<?php include 'vendor/autoload.php'; use Pheanstalk\Pheanstalk; $pheanstalk = new Pheanstalk(''); while(true){ $tube_id=rand(1,9); $r1=rand(1,10000000); $r2=rand(1,10000000); $pheanstalk->useTube('testtube'.$tube_id)->put('{'.$r1.':'.$r2.'}'); } ?>

use: php put.php and the application process will begin Information! the more instances are opened, the more data is superimposed on the tube / s

how to get data from tube / s

<?php include 'vendor/autoload.php'; use Pheanstalk\Pheanstalk; $pheanstalk = new Pheanstalk(''); while(true){ $tube_id=rand(1,9); $job=$pheanstalk->watch('testtube'.$tube_id)->ignore('default')->reserve(); if($job){ echo $job->getdata(); $pheanstalk->delete($job); } } ?>

use: php get.php and the process of getting Info starts! the more instances are opened, the more data is processed;

12). InstallBeanstalk Console


change directory

use: cd /var/www/html

create a new folder

use: mkdir beanstalk_console

use: git clone

change file permissions: storage.json chmod 777 storage.json

now to access Beanstalk Console

, write in the browser:http://localhost/beanstalk_console/public

13). It's him!



While Ionut's answer is viable for getting Pheanstalk to work, it doesn't actually answer the question posed: how do you get Pheanstalk working from a git clone of a project's repo? (It's implicit here that you don't want to use Composer to install, which is the assumption I'll be using for this answer.)

The main problem is that you can't just require('src/Pheanstalk.php');

and then start using the Pheanstalk class. The Pheanstalk library relies heavily on PHP class autoloading, so without this setting it will fail as described in the original question.

If you have a PSR-4 compatible autoloader for your project, great! Point it to the psr-4 section of the composer.json file and see the magic work.

For everyone else, though, you'll want to use the function provided by Thibault in his answer to a similar question: / ...

Assuming your project has the Pheanstalk git repository cloned in pheanstalk

, you can just use loadPackage('pheanstalk')

and everything should work correctly.

Complete example:

function loadPackage($dir)
    $composer = json_decode(file_get_contents("$dir/composer.json"), 1);
    $namespaces = $composer['autoload']['psr-4'];

    // Foreach namespace specified in the composer, load the given classes
    foreach ($namespaces as $namespace => $classpath) {
        spl_autoload_register(function ($classname) use ($namespace, $classpath, $dir) {
            // Check if the namespace matches the class we are looking for
            if (preg_match("#^".preg_quote($namespace)."#", $classname)) {
                // Remove the namespace from the file path since it psr4
                $classname = str_replace($namespace, "", $classname);
                $filename = preg_replace("#\\\\#", "/", $classname).".php";
                include_once $dir."/".$classpath."/$filename";


use Pheanstalk\Pheanstalk;

$pheanstalk = new Pheanstalk('');

echo $pheanstalk->getConnection()->isServiceListening();
