Alternatively, the generated files can also be fetched from your nearest mirror, see the following instructions
Setting up an official (or unofficial) mirror is described within the official mirror page. However, setting up your own mirror via SVN is possible too and is especially helpful for those working on the PHP website.
Save the following shell script as IcanHazPHPWeb.sh Then execute sh ./IcanHazPHPWeb.sh And wait for ca 10 minutes. (took 7m30.871s on my box)
#!/bin/sh mkdir ~/php.net cd ~/php.net # Checkout the english manual sources svn co https://svn.php.net/repository/phpdoc/modules/doc-en # Checkout the actual website (does not include /distribution, thats a gigantic separate repo) git clone git://git.php.net/web/php.git phpweb cd phpweb # Some files are pre-generated on master.php.net for various reasons (cd include && for i in countries.inc last_updated.inc mirrors.inc pregen-confs.inc pregen-events.inc pregen-news.inc; do wget "http://www.php.net/include/$i"; done;) (cd backend && for i in ip-to-country.db ip-to-country.idx; do wget "http://www.php.net/backend/$i"; done;) cd .. # Install PhD and build the manual cd doc-en php doc-base/configure.php pear install doc.php.net/phd_php phd -d doc-base/.manual.xml -P PHP -f php cd .. cd phpweb # Symlink the generated english documentations from our PhD build dir (cd manual && ln -s ~/php.net/doc-en/output/php-web en) echo "Now copy&paste the VirtualHost config from http://php.net/mirroring.php#settings" echo "Fill out the 'template' and restart apache"
