Why o why does MacUpdate track Unix software in the main Mac software channel? Just a suggestion, but i would prefer it if you had a separate tab/category for server software, daemons, CLI utilities and the like. That way, the 90% who don't use it won't have to contend with the added entries on the tracker. (I do personally use a lot of server-oriented software and CLI tools, so i would personally check that category for updates. But my preference would be to separate them out to another category listing.)

From the developers website;
Note: The package on this page is outdated. I recommend this new PHP distribution for Mac OS X, it is based on mine:
http://blog.liip.ch/archive/2011/04/13/php-5-3-for-os-x-10-6-one-line-installer.html

http://php-osx.liip.ch/ - is the best source for a 10.6 version of php.

Since Snow Leopard wiped-out my install of the entropy version of PHP, does anybody know what would happen if I reinstalled this?

Now PHP 5.3.0-3

Thanks Marc for compiling this for OS X - it gets me an easy way to get an upto date php distro, with GD (not on Apple's vanilla inbuilt), etc. onto my server - without waiting, waiting for Apple to update.

The current version at http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php/ is 5.2.4.

This is the same version as the PHP that ships with Leopard, so there's currently no reason to try installing this on Leopard.

Never said it, but have used your builds and tips for so long that it's way overdue: Thank you, Marc.

Note that this package will ONLY work on Mac OS 10.4, NOT 10.3! I installed it on 10.3 and the installation failed at the end, and then the Apache server would not restart because it could no longer load the php shared library. I can't find any precompiled version of PHP 5.2 available for Mac OS 10.3.

The stated requirements on the product page: Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

I missed that because previous PHP 5 packages have installed on 10.3. This installer attempts to install on 10.3, but fails at the end. The developer's site states that "older, unmaintained, unsupported, ppc-only packages of PHP 5 are available for Mac OS X 10.3", but I can't find any linked from that site. So, user beware.

Big thanks to Marc for his excellent installers. I've found his Postgresql installer invaluable as well.

Since this is a binary package, it comes with a MySQL Client API version that will most likely not match the version of MySQL Server you are currently using, or would like to use in the future. Ideally, your client and server should match for best reliability, so only use this package if you don't know how to compile PHP yourself.

For example, the MySQL Client that comes with this package matches MySQL 4.1.14, so if you have MySQL 5.0.18 installed, then some functions may/will fail. It may not make much difference to the average user, but just know that it is best (and recommended by mysql.com) that your mysql client api is at least current with whatever server version you use.

Warning, if you require PHP DO NOT upgrade to Leopard. This PHP installation will not work on Leopard. Hopefully an update will be made available by the developer soon.

You don't need this for leopard, it already has php 5.2.2 installed by default, you just need to activate it by copying the php.conf file into the right place. Tiger also has php 4.3 installed by default, again it just needs activating to run.

But the Apple install lacks additions like the GD library.

I installed this package (OS 10.4.10 and Apache 1.3) and now Apache fails.

How do you uninstall this?

Perhaps you should post your question to the developer's user forum:

go to the directory: /etc/httpd/sites and delete the file: +entrophy-php.conf

before i delete the file, i insert the LoadModule an the AddModule statment in the httpd.conf. so you can enable / disable the php5 module via Admin Server.

When i enable both PHP5 and PHP4 my server crsh with a Bus Error.
