The PHP agent supports PHP 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3.

The PHP agent does not:

  • Monitor PHP applications in Zend Thread Safety (ZTS) mode. If you are using ZTS, AppDynamics suggests that you review your dependencies on ZTS to confirm that you actually need it, and if you do not, to switch to non-ZTS mode

  • Support Zend Monitor

  • Officially support plugins that encrypt and/or obfuscate PHP code, such as Zend Guard or ionCUBE Loader

PHP Web Servers

  • Apache 2.2 and 2.4 in the following modes:
    • prefork mode using mod_php
    • worker MPM mode using mod_fastcgi with php-fpm or mod_fcgid with php-cgi
  • Any web server compatible with php-fpm.

Operating Systems

  • Any Linux distribution based on glibc 2.5+.
  • Mac OS X 10.9+

If your PHP framework is not listed here, the agent detects your entry points as PHP Web and names the business transactions based on the first two segments of the URI — the default naming convention for PHP Web transactions. So it is still possible to monitor applications on unsupported frameworks. Laravel BTs are detected as symfony, as laravel itself is built on top of symfony.
