Homebrew is a package manager for OS X. It just makes things easier.
If you don’t have it already:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSkL raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/go)"
brew install nginx
/usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf file to set
8081 port (
brew tap djl/homebrew-apache2 brew install djl/apache2/apache24
Create (link) apache configuration in main brew etc directory: ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/apache24/2.4.3/conf /usr/local/etc/apache2 (note to use correct version of apache2).
Edit /usr/local/etc/apache2/httpd.conf file to set
OS X comes with Apache pre-installed, so we need to make sure ours 2.4 is used, and not default 2.2 one.
Turn off “Web Sharing” in System Preferences (Sharing).
Make sure to have
/usr/sbin (where default Apache is installed), eg. add to .zshrc export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH.
brew install ruby
brew tap homebrew/dupes brew tap josegonzalez/homebrew-php brew options php54 # to check installation options available brew install php54 --with-fpm
Browse josegonzalez/homebrew-php for more PHP formulas, eg. brew install php54-xdebug.
Make sure you include the proxy_fcgi module in your httpd.conf so we can use its features:
LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so LoadModule proxy_fcgi_module modules/mod_proxy_fcgi.so
Edit the configuration for a vhost of your choice, and add the following line to it:
ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*\.php(/.*)?)$ fcgi://127.0.0.1:9000/path/to/your/documentroot/$1
curl get.pow.cx | sh
Pow is a zero-config server for OS X.
It’s working at port 80 by default, but its port proxying feature lets you proxy virtual hosts to other ports on your computer (so we can proxy nginx apps to
8081 and apache apps to
You just create a file in ~/.pow with the virtual host as the filename and the port number as its contents, eg.
echo 8081 > ~/.pow/myapp.
Make sure to have all services added to ~/Library/LaunchAgents directory and loaded via launchctl load -w .... All instructions are provided after given package is installed with brew.
