How to enable PHP on Mac OS Leopard

Michael Dale

To enable php:

  1. open terminal
  2. cd /etc/
  3. sudo cp php.ini.default php.ini
  4. cd /private/etc/apache2/
  5. sudo nano httpd.conf
  6. uncomment the two modules: php5_module and fastcgi_module. They were at line 114 and 115 for me.
  7. Use ctrl and o to save
  8. reload apache (can be done from system preferences).

Step 4 should say 'httpd.conf' instead of 'httpd.config'
