Installing PHP on OSX - HeyPublisher/heypublisher-submission-manager Wiki

Based on several pages around the net, this is what I've done:

  • Install the binary:

    curl -s http://php-osx.liip.ch/install.sh | bash -s 7.2

  • Validate that the correct version of PHP was installed:

    $ php -v

    PHP 7.2.2 (cli) (built: Feb 1 2018 13:23:34) ( NTS )
    Copyright (c) 1997-2018 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v3.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2018 Zend Technologies
    with Zend OPcache v7.2.2, Copyright (c) 1999-2018, by Zend Technologies
    with Xdebug v2.6.0, Copyright (c) 2002-2018, by Derick Rethans

  • Manually assigning a PHP version:

    The above script enables the different versions by changing the symlink /usr/local/php5 like:

    php5 -> /usr/local/php5-7.2.2-20180201-132629

    Simply change the symlink and restart apache (sudo apachectl restart) to change versions.
