This document details how to install the PHP APM Profiler in your PHP application running on AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS).

Prerequisite

Follow the Retrace AWS ECS Guide.

PHP Application Setup

Dockerfile Configuration

Adjust your Dockerfile to include the PHP Profiler.

RUN mkdir -p /stackify-php-apm && \
    cd /stackify-php-apm && \
    wget https://download.stackify.com/stackify-php-apm/stackify-php-apm-latest.tar.gz;  tar -zxvf stackify-php-apm-latest.tar.gz; rm stackify-php-apm-latest.tar.gz && \
    ./install.sh

RUN echo "[stackify]" >> [php_dir]/php.ini && \
   echo "extension=stackify.so" >> [php_dir]/php.ini && \
   echo "stackify.application_name=PHP Application" >>  [php_dir]/php.ini && \
   echo "stackify.environment_name=Production" >>  [php_dir]/php.ini

Adjust [php_dir] to point to your PHP configuration path.

Task Configuration

Application containers are required to have the stackify volume mount configured in Retrace AWS ECS Guide.

Add the stackify volume to the task definition:

{
  "volumes": [
    {
      "name": "stackify",
      "host": {
        "sourcePath": "/var/stackify"
      }
    }
  ]
}

Add stackify mount points to the container definition:

{
  "containerDefinitions": [
    {
      "mountPoints": [
        {
          "readOnly": false,
          "containerPath": "/usr/local/stackify",
          "sourceVolume": "stackify"
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}

Verify

Start up your PHP application task and make requests. You can then verify results in the Retrace dashboard.
