Cannot build Symfony 3 app + database using bitbucket pipeline


Hi all,


I'm working on a prototype using Symfony 3.
I'm not able to run tests through the pipelines service because I receive following errors. It seems the parameters.yml file that is generated in the yml file is not read.


[Doctrine\DBAL\Exception\DriverException]  An exception occurred in driver: could not find driver

[Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOException] could not find driver

[PDOException] could not find driver

Can someone help me, please?


# This is a sample build configuration for PHP.
# Check our guides at for more examples.
# Only use spaces to indent your .yml configuration.
# -----
# You can specify a custom docker image from Docker Hub as your build environment.
image: php:7.1.11

- step:
- apt-get update && apt-get install -y unzip
- curl -sS | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer
- composer -V
- composer install
- cp app/config/parameters.yml.dist app/config/parameters.yml
- "sed -i 's/database_port: ~/database_port: 3306/' app/config/parameters.yml"
- "sed -i 's/database_name: symfony/database_name: pipelines/' app/config/parameters.yml"
- "sed -i 's/database_user: root/database_user: test_user/' app/config/parameters.yml"
- "sed -i 's/database_password: ~/database_password: test_user_password/' app/config/parameters.yml"
- composer test
- mysql

image: mysql
MYSQL_DATABASE: 'pipelines'
MYSQL_USER: 'test_user'
MYSQL_PASSWORD: 'test_user_password'

You need to install pdo_mysql in the docker image. This is very simple:

  • Add mysql-client to you apt-get install section. The first command in your script section should be changed to
    - apt-get update && apt-get install -y unzip mysql-client
  • Add a new command after apt-get install:
    - docker-php-ext-install pdo pdo_mysql

After this two steps pdo_mysql is available in your image.
