Setup your PHP environment

To be able to run Wasmer inside our PHP application, we will need PHP to be installed in our system.

The easiest way to get PHP in your system is to follow the official documentation.

To ensure it is installed, let's run the following:

php --version # This will show the PHP version

If this command works, PHP is successfully installed!

Start a PHP project

Now it's time to create a new project and add Wasmer as a dependency:

mkdir wasmer-project
cd wasmer-project
composer init --name=wasmer-project
composer require wasm/wasm

Before doing that you will have to install the PHP wasm extension.

For a detailed installation instructions, please refer to Wasmer PHP integration documentation.

Next, let's take a look at some examples!
