Console Application - Php Fatal Error: Cannot Redeclare Class


Recommended Posts

Larry et al.,

After working through several web applications I have started to work on a console application.  To get started I created a simple class in in the commands folder called SayHelloConsole.php.  When I try to run the application ./yiic SayHello I receive the following error:

 

$ ./yiic sayhello
PHP Fatal error:  Cannot redeclare class SayHello in /var/www/myapp/protected/commands/SayHelloCommand.php on line 6

 

I have no other classes with the same name and I cannot track down where an additional import is taking place.  I have tried removing:

'import'=>array(
        'application.commands.*',
    ),

 

from console.php, but then yiic fails because it cannot find the class file.  I have googled and reviewed other reports of the problem, however I cannot find a solution to my problem.  I have also tried the same command on two different Yii installations and still have the same issue.  If I don't import 'application.commands' yiic cannot find the file and if I do, I get the 'cannot redeclare class' error.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Bart

 

My application is in the file SayHelloCommand.php

<?php
class SayHello extends CConsoleCommand{
    public function run($args){
        echo "Hello!\n";
    }
}

 

 

My console configuration is console.php

<?php
return array(
    'basePath'=>dirname(__FILE__).DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'..',
    'name'=>'Console',
    // preloading 'log' component
    
    // autoloading model and component classes
    'import'=>array(
        'application.commands.*',
    ),

);

Is there any more to the error message? Other than that, I hate to say that the problem is almost certainly that you do, in fact, have a SayHello class defined somewhere else in your code. You could change your class name to something really random to confirm.

Larry,

I created a new file FurryWhiteBunnyCommand.php with the following class:

<?php

class FurryWhiteBunny extends CConsoleCommand{
    public function bunnies(){
       echo "I am a bunny\n";
    }
}

 

and I get the following:

$ ./yiic furrywhitebunny bunnies

PHP Fatal error:  Cannot redeclare class FurryWhiteBunny in /opt/local/www/myapp/protected/commands/FurryWhiteBunnyCommand.php on line 7

 

That is the only error message.

 

No other bunny files/classes on my system.  If I type ./yiic help it show the command:

$ ./yiic help
Yii command runner (based on Yii v1.1.14)
Usage: ./yiic <command-name> [parameters...]

The following commands are available:
 - furrywhitebunny
 - getxml
 - message
 - migrate
 - sayhello
 - shell
 - webapp

To see individual command help, use the following:
   ./yiic help <command-name>

 

The rest of my Yii application seems to work great.  That is why I'm stumped on this.  Is there another way to autoload other than

'import'=>array(
        'application.commands.*',
    ),

in the console.php file?

Thanks,

Bart

Larry,

Just to make sure I didn't have some other custom configuration issue causing the problem I created a new web application on another machine.  I then created the commands/SayHelloCommand.php file identical to the one I used earlier and attempted to run the console command:

$ ./yiic sayhello
PHP Error[2]: include(SayHelloCommand.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
    in file /opt/local/www/yii/framework/YiiBase.php at line 427
#0 /opt/local/www/yii/framework/YiiBase.php(427): autoload()
#1 unknown(0): autoload()
#2 /opt/local/www/yii/framework/console/CConsoleCommandRunner.php(170): spl_autoload_call()
#3 /opt/local/www/yii/framework/console/CConsoleCommandRunner.php(67): CConsoleCommandRunner->createCommand()
#4 /opt/local/www/yii/framework/console/CConsoleApplication.php(92): CConsoleCommandRunner->run()
#5 /opt/local/www/yii/framework/base/CApplication.php(180): CConsoleApplication->processRequest()
#6 /opt/local/www/yii/framework/yiic.php(33): CConsoleApplication->run()
#7 /opt/local/www/html/myapp/protected/yiic.php(7): require_once()
#8 /opt/local/www/html/myapp/protected/yiic(4): require_once()

I then changed config/console.php to add the import statement so  autoloading could find the new command:
<?php

// This is the configuration for yiic console application.
// Any writable CConsoleApplication properties can be configured here.
return array(
        'basePath'=>dirname(__FILE__).DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'..',
        'name'=>'My Console Application',

        // preloading 'log' component
        'preload'=>array('log'),
        'import'=>array(
                'application.commands.*',
        ),
);

 

I then re-ran the command and received the same results.

$ ./yiic sayhello
PHP Fatal error:  Cannot redeclare class SayHello in /opt/local/www/html/myapp/protected/commands/SayHelloCommand.php on line 6

 

I'm using Yii 1.14, but I also tried it with 1.13 and 1.12.

Thanks,

Bart
