Create a Mac IDE using MacPorts (Cached)

Mac Development System With MacPorts

This page descibes how to set up a Mac to be a local development host server

Note and warning for all macOS upgrades

This usually will break your current macports!

Follow the instructions on macports.org carefully mrgreen

I posted a note on stackoverflow.com about my experience.

Updated April 2020 jonnyb - now running PHP7.4 and 5.6 for Tiki 22 On Mac OS 10.15 El Catalina


Mostly following this page

Basics

  • Download MacPort
  • turn off web sharing in system prefs > Sharing
    • Note: On Lion, it won't appear in the list at all. Alain Désilets found he had to disable it with a launchctl command (forget the exact command)
  • install Xcode
  • install the XCode command line tools as follows
    • Start XCode, then Preferences > Downloads > Command Line Tools > install.
  • Start a new Terminal window (to make sure the environment changes made by XCode are in effect), and execute the following commands:

Install Apache 2
xcodebuild -license

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port upgrade outdated

#### apache

sudo port install apache2
sudo port load apache2
sudo apachectl start

PHP and Apache

Install PHP 7.x (7.2 for example)
sudo port install php72-{apache2handler,calendar,curl,gd,gettext,iconv,intl,mbstring,mcrypt,mysql,opcache,openssl,posix,sockets,sqlite,xdebug,zip}

sudo port select php php72

sudo cp /opt/local/etc/php72/php.ini-development /opt/local/etc/php72/php.ini	# or php.ini-production
sudo /opt/local/apache2/bin/apxs -a -e -n "php7" mod_php72.so

/opt/local/apache2/bin/httpd -t					# check apache config

sudo apachectl restart

# check php
php -v
php56 -v   # still there as a fallback

# You may need to add this line to /opt/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
    Include conf/extra/mod_php72.conf
# and comment out the php56 LoadModule and Include lines

# also needed to edit in php.ini
pdo_mysql.default_socket=/opt/local/var/run/mysql56/mysqld.sock
# and
[xdebug]
xdebug.remote_enable = On
xdebug.remote_autostart = On
xdebug.idekey = PHPSTORM
xdebug.collect_return = On
xdebug.collect_vars = On
xdebug.show_local_vars = On
xdebug.profiler_enable = Off
xdebug.profiler_enable_trigger = On
xdebug.profiler_aggregate = Off

PHP 5.x

[+]

MySql

Install MySql 5
sudo port install mysql5-server
sudo port load mysql5-server
sudo apachectl restart

sudo -u _mysql mysql_install_db5
mysql
    N.B. On ML I got: mysql: command not found
    I had to add /opt/local/lib/mysql5/bin to my path
    (using "export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/opt/local/lib/mysql5/bin:$PATH" in ~/.profile)

mysqlstart
    See additions to .profile, you need to run "alias mysqlstart='sudo /opt/local/share/mysql5/mysql/mysql.server start'" for this to work.

sudo /opt/local/lib/mysql5/bin/mysql_secure_installation

mysqladmin -u root -p variables						# look for config location
sudo cp /opt/local/share/mysql5/mysql/my-medium.cnf /opt/local/my.cnf
  • then edit /opt/local/my.cnf and add (in the relevant sections)
my.cnf
[client]
	default-character-set=utf8
	
	[mysqld]
	default-character-set=utf8
	default-collation=utf8_general_ci
	character-set-server=utf8
	collation-server=utf8_general_ci
	init-connect='SET NAMES utf8'
Start MySql and test again
mysqlstart
mysql -u root -p
mysqladmin -u root -p variables

sudo /opt/local/share/mysql5/mysql/mysql.server restart
mysqladmin -u root -p variables

sudo apachectl restart

sudo port install php56-mysql
sudo apachectl restart

Extras goodies

sudo port install phpMyAdmin +php56
* Note: This will install phpmyadmin in /opt/local/www, which is different from the default DocumentRoot of apache (/opt/local/apache2/htdocs). So you will have to add the following to your httpd.conf file (or put it in a file that you include at the end of httpd.conf)

<Directory "/opt/local/www/phpmyadmin/">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

Alias /phpmyadmin/ "/opt/local/www/phpmyadmin/"


sudo apachectl restart

sudo port install subversion

sudo port install freetype		# needed by captcha

# sudo port install Pallet		# GUI for macports (don't bother, not very reliable sadly)

# to get memcache (needs memcached running) to work do this
memcached -d
# and test with
telnet 127.0.0.1 11211
# to get memcached to run at startup do
sudo port load memcached
#### additions to .profile

	export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/opt/local/lib/mysql5/bin:/opt/local/apache2/bin:$PATH
	
	alias apache2ctl=apachectl    # not needed with path above
	alias php=php56                  # not needed with path above
	alias mysqlstart='sudo /opt/local/share/mysql5/mysql/mysql.server start'

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
