There does not seem to be a prebuilt HHVM package available for Ubuntu 16.04. It seems in Xenial that they have added HHVM to the universal repos, but installing it that way does not include the install_fastcgi.sh script that was present for previous Ubuntu distros. Does anyone know how to install HHVM on 16.04 in a way that includes that script? Thanks.

  • It seems like the HHVM team might just not have prebuilts available yet for Xenial per this issue. – Collin Barrett May 25 '16 at 11:24

yeah, this worked for me:

  1. sudo apt update && apt upgrade | sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get autoremove

  2. add to your /etc/apt/sources.list

    deb http://dl.hhvm.com/ubuntu xenial main
  3. sudo apt update && sudo apt-get install -y hhvm

this should bring you to hhvm 3.14 which is current

then run the script which will be available on the install credits.

  • this works! thanks! prebuilt package is now available, but HHVM docs have yet to be updated. – Collin Barrett Jun 26 '16 at 14:34
