php.exe PEAR/go-pear.phar
     4.  After pear installed check version using command “pear  –V” . run below command to update pear.

     6.  For PHPUnit installation run command.
pear install

     7. After successfully installation check PHPUnit version using command .
Phpunit -version
Screen should be look like below

Create First Test Scripts:

As selenium does not provide  direct any library for PHP Webdriver. For this we need to bind some third party library with our framework.
Download latest third party library from link “download
Extract and put this library in automation project  directory.

Create a “Google.php” file, copy and past below code and  put it in automation project directory parallel to “phpwebdriver” library.

require_once 'phpwebdriver/WebDriver.php';
 * @property WebDriver $webdriver
class Google extends  PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase 
        //function set up
         public function setUp() {
               $this->webdriver = new WebDriver("localhost", "4444");

        //function close browser
    public function tearDown()
        public function testGoogle()
               // input search field
               $el = $this->webdriver->findElementBy(LocatorStrategy::id, "gbqfq");
               //click on search button
               $el = $this->webdriver->findElementBy(LocatorStrategy::id, "gbqfsa");

Run selenium Server: Open command prompt goto “selenium-server-standalone-2.**.0.jar” and run below command 
        Java –jar selenium-server-standalone-2.**.0.jar     
Below screen should be appear.
 Run Test scripts:
Open command go to go to automation framework directory and run below command. 
        Phpunit Google.php    
After successfully execution screen should be look like as below.
