Has anyone tried this? Before I possibly mess up my Mac OS X setup, I'd like to know. Normally PHP 5 is installed in a separate location, and Apache 2 is not the default from Apple. How does this package handle all of that? Does it replace the current Apache?

It seems at this time that this product, unfortunately, may no longer be being developed.

I was wondering what the affects of running an intel machine might have on this installer. I am assuming that because this is pretty much a unix sub-process (right?) that it won't have much impact on what kind of processor it is running on... but you never know with rosetta. Any one tried?

Hi Pedro Yes - i had the same problem you need to disable the "mod_unique_id" in the httpd.conf file> this is the file that contains the settings for apache 2 to do this log in as root ( or use pseudo to run TextEdit http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/5620 with root permissions ) Then chose the Go Menu in the finder and go to folder. Paste in /usr/local/apache2/ find the httpd.conf and open it in TextEdit Search for mod_unique_id Either delete the line (this is fine) or place an # in front of it to stop it being used Save it and it should start also - to use phpMyAdmin u need to open the config.inc.php file in the phpMyAdmin folder ( again use the go menu and point it to /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/phpMyAdmin/ ) and place the password inside the "" on the line $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] if you changed the password (as you should) in the WebServerX Kit MySql section hope this helps people James

Hi. I just downloaded WebServerX as a replacement for the "complete" series of installers, since I'm upgrading my test server. I'm running Mac OS X 10.3.9 right now. The problem is that when i tried to start Apache on the pref pane i didn't and i got this error on the console: Syntax error on line 275 of /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/local/apache2/modules/libphp5.so into server: dyld: /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd can't open library: /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.4.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)\n Any thoughts about what could have went wrong? Thank you in advance. Pedro

Fantastic! I have been using standalone installers for PHP and MySQL for some time now and they are a real bind, especially MySQL, starting and stopping the database server all the time. Now this package makes the installation process as easy as opening Safari and you get a Prefs pane to start/stop the services! Great! Best of all its all compatible with Dreamweaver MX so you can get on with developing PHP pages in seconds! I highly recormend this package to anyone that wants to develop on the Mac for the first time. Also getting CocoaMySQL (free) for MySQL Database administration makes MySQL a little better too. Thanks to the developer for creating a great package! :)

I will be watching this package with interest--we need a one step installer of AMP. However, Server Logistics already has excellent builds of recent versions to install separately--Apache 2, MySQL 4, and PHP 4. The PHP includes numerous modules including GD library and mmTurcke PHP accelerator. An accelerator is essential for database intensive webservers.

Guys - if you need addons like GD that badly, download the source for each package separately, and compile them yourselves. It's not that difficult, and Apache and PHP, at least, have pretty decent install documentation. The MySQL binary install is pretty good, so you might elect to just use that.

It sounds nice, and though the install puts Apache 2.0 in a location where it won't mess up the original that comes with OS X, I still have no way of verifying the PHP options, nor anything else it installs. I can install these elements on my own using packages from Marc Liayanage, and straight from MySQL as well. They are more stable, and trustworthy. However, in the future when the kinks of this package are worked out and the developer FINALLY releases the source code for the project (why not already?!?!) I'll trust it enough to use it. He's got a great idea in making this all in one package, and should continue, but it's not up to snuff yet.

Using the directions provided on that help page, I got this package working just fine. Apache seemed not to work at first, but then I remembered I had Mac OS X's built-in web sharing turned on; turning it off resulted in happy Apache. MySQL works fine, and phpinfo() reported a happy PHP 5 installation. However, when I tried to execute some of my programs, I discovered the PHP part had been compiled without the GD graphics libraries, which I need for the work I'm doing... Too bad, because on all other counts, this was a pretty easy and painless experience.
