The WordPress plugin provides some handy options to make setting up a
.probo.yaml file for your WordPress site easier. To use this plugin you must declare
plugin: WordPressApp in a step in your
WordPress core and plugins generally prefer absolute URLs for links and images instead of relative URLs. This means Probo needs to rewrite your data in order for links to work in the test environment. The
wpHome configuration options set the string values Probo will use to search for the appropriate base paths and replace them with the Probo environment’s URL.
The URL of the original site as stored in the database. This is replaced by the Probo URL in the database.
The homepage URL of the original site (including the domain). This is replaced by the Probo URL in the database.
The filename of the database to import if specified. Note that this database must be added to the Assets section separately.
The name of the database. Defaults to
Whether the database was sent gzipped and whether it should therefore be gunzipped before importing.
Database Collation Errors on Builds
Currenty in Wordpress 4.8.x, the MySQL database collation can be in COLLATION format
utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci. This format is unsupported by our current docker images depending on your site’s MySQL Server version. If you exported your DB from MySQL 5.6 or higher, you might receive the following error:
ERROR 1273 (HY000) at line 25: Unknown collation: 'utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci'
You will need to modify your exported
sitename.sql file to allow your exported DB to import properly on Probo’s current Docker images.
Find and replace
utf8mb4_unicode_ci in your exported
sitename.sql file. Then, upload this modified file as a Probo Asset, and set this DB as an asset in your
.probo.yaml file. This will no longer be neccessary once we create docker images that support the newer
WP-CLI Version Errors
In some cases we have seen the wp-cli tool error out during a build using the
utf8mb4_unicode_ci DB collation. Updating the
wp-cli tool in the
.probo.yaml file resolves this issue. You will need to update your
wp-cli version if you receive the following error in your Probo build logs for the “Site setup” step:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function apply_filters() in /src/wp-includes/load.php on line 316
