Setting up PHP & MySQL on OS X 10.7 Lion
Jul 25, 2011 @ 12:12:51

Rob Allen has posted his own guide to getting PHP 5.3 set up on OS X 10.7 Lion, the just-released update for Apple's operating system. It comes with a bundled set of PHP-related tools but you might want to set them up your own way. This is where the guide comes in.

With OS X 10.7, Apple continues to ship PHP 5.3 with PEAR, GD and PDO_MYSQL out of the box. This is how to set it up from a clean install of 10.7.

He goes through each of the pieces of software and talks about where to download the latest from and what configuration steps are needed:

  • MySQL
  • Apache
  • the php.ini
  • Xdebug
  • PEAR
  • PHPUnit (and friends)
  • PECL OAuth
  • mcrypt
