You can use the PHP buildpack with PHP or HHVM runtimes.
The release notes page has a list of currently supported modules and packages.
With the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface installed, open a shell, change directories to the root of your PHP files and push your application using the argument
$ mkdir my-php-app $ cd my-php-app $ cat << EOF > index.php <?php phpinfo(); ?> EOF $ cf push -m 128M -b https://github.com/cloudfoundry/php-buildpack.git my-php-app
Change my-php-app in the above example to a unique name on your target Cloud Foundry instance to prevent a hostname conflict error and failed push.
The previous example creates and pushes a test application, my-php-app, to Cloud Foundry. The
-b argument instructs CF to use this buildpack. The remainder of the options and arguments are not specific to the buildpack, for questions on those consult the output of
cf help push.
Here’s a breakdown of what happens when you run the example:
cfto push your application. This creates a new application with a memory limit of 128M (more than enough here) and upload our test file.

If you need to use a proxy to download dependencies during staging, you can set the
https_proxy environment variables. For more information, see the Proxy Usage Docs.
For versions of PHP 5.6.0 and later, the default certificate location is
/usr/lib/ssl/certs, which symlinks to
/etc/ssl/certs. Your platform operator can configure the platform to add the custom certificates into the application container.
