Why I'm getting this PHP error?

Fatal error: Class 'PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase' not found in ...



The PHPUnit documentation says used to say to include/require PHPUnit/Framework.php, as follows:

require_once ('PHPUnit/Framework/TestCase.php');


As of PHPUnit 3.5, there is a built-in autoloader class that will handle this for you:

require_once 'PHPUnit/Autoload.php';

Thanks to Phoenix for pointing this out!

Look up the following inside your script file


If you can't find Soap Client set to enabled like so:


Do the following:

  1. Locate php.ini in your apache bin folder, I.e Apache/bin/php.ini
  2. Remove the ; from the beginning of extension=php_soap.dll
  3. Restart your Apache server
  4. Look up your phpinfo(); again and check if you see a similar picture to the one above
  5. If you do, problem solved!

On the other hand if this doesn't solve your issue, you may want to check the requirements for SOAP here. Also in the comment section you can find good advice on connecting to https.

The answer was due to hidden characters located in the lessons.db file.

The error shown had nothing to do with this and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to give their two pence.

Replace this include './connection.php'; to include 'connection.php';
Replace you class name connection to Connection

You access the property in the wrong way. With the $this->$my_value = .. syntax, you set the property with the name of the value in $my_value. What you want is $this->my_value = ..

$var = "my_value";
$this->$var = "test";

is the same as

$this->my_value = "test";

To fix a few things from your example, the code below is a better aproach

class my_class {

    public  $my_value = array();

    function __construct ($value) {
        $this->my_value[] = $value;

    function set_value ($value) {
        if (!is_array($value)) {
            throw new Exception("Illegal argument");

        $this->my_value = $value;

    function add_value($value) {
        $this->my_value = $value;

$a = new my_class ('a');
$a->my_value[] = 'b';

This ensures, that my_value won't change it's type to string or something else when you call set_value. But you can still set the value of my_value direct, because it's public. The final step is, to make my_value private and only access my_value over getter/setter methods
