Replacing the existing Leopard PHP installation with a more complete version

The good folks at have packaged up a pre-compiled version of PHP to replace OS X 10.5 Leopard’s barebones installation. The build contains most of the good stuff that the Apple folks in their infinite wisdom didn’t see fit to include – entropy-phpinfo.pdf

See the instructions at Entropy’s forum, or read below.

sudo mv /usr/local/php5 ~/Desktop/php5.old curl -O tar -xzf php5-*-beta.tar.gz sudo mv php5 /usr/local/ sudo ln -sf /usr/local/php5/entropy-php.conf /etc/apache2/other/+entropy-php.conf sudo apachectl restart
