Bård Farstad's Blog:
Compiling Apache and PHP on Mac OS X
Apr 14, 2006 @ 18:15:32

In this new blog entry, Bård Farstad shares what he, a recent "switcher" to the OS X operating system, had to do to get Apache and PHP completely installed on his system.

Since my recent move to the Mac running OS X I have learnt some new stuff about PHP and Apache the hard way. OS X is shipped with Apache and PHP by default and if you compile Apache and PHP like you normally do under Linux you quickly get surprised.

HE notes that the default install of Aapche/PHP on an OS X system is a bit different than on others - the entire isntallation isn't in the directory defined by the "prefix" parameter. He worked around this kind of setup, and includes the configure lines in the post as an example.
