Compiling PHP 5.2 on OSX Lion
Regards ♨ – Minimul
This doesn't look that hard but I was caught forever getting the
libjpeg(a|so) not found php compile error. What I believe got me past that error is the php compile switch
--enable-static or even possibly the
--disable-shared switch. I also had quite a run in with the iconv extension (see below).
This was a nightmare and I almost quit.
- OSX Lion
- XCode 4.2
1. Compile dir
This not required but I have a ~/Compile dir which I will be working from
2. Compile libjpeg.
I used v1.7 and you can get it here.
cd ~/Compile wget or curl the libjpeg.tar.gz and uncompress cd libjpeg-1.7 ./configure make && make install
3. Save the current libphp5.so
sudo cp /usr/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so /usr/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so.original.53
4. Compile PHP
I downloaded the latest at this time of writing, which is 5.2.17. Some notes about the configure command. I had XCode installed which has both libpng and libfreetype so I just used those, which are in
/usr/X11/lib. However, I only used the Xcode ones after I could get the configure to pass. I kept getting "libpng(a|so) not found" and then libfreetype(a|so) not found. I believe this was because the .dylib was not getting generated on the libpng and libfreetype hand compile.
./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-zlib --enable-soap --with-apxs2 --disable-iconv --enable-ftp --enable-mbstring --prefix=/usr/local/php52 --with-gd --with-pdo-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-mysqli=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config --with-openssl --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-png-dir=/usr/X11 --with-freetype-dir=/usr/X11 --with-curl --enable-xmlreader --enable-xmlwriter --enable-zip --with-kerberos --enable-static --disable-shared make sudo make install
5. Note on iconv
You will notice the
--disable-iconv. I could not for the life of me get iconv compiled. I tried everything that I could search for including: hacking the Makefile; and hacking the ext/iconv/iconv.c file. Therefore if you are searching for the error:
Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64: "_libiconv_open", referenced from: _do_convert in gdkanji.o _convert in encodings.o "_libiconv", referenced from: _do_convert in gdkanji.o _convert in encodings.o "_libiconv_close", referenced from: _do_convert in gdkanji.o _convert in encodings.o ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64 collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [libs/libphp5.bundle] Error 1
I can't help you. However, you may realize, as I did, that you don't need the iconv extension.
6. PHP CLI
For whatever reason the compiled php cli binary was named "php.dSYM". I made a symbolic link instead of renaming.
sudo ln -s /usr/local/php52/bin/php.dSYM /usr/local/php52/bin/php
Bonus: Installing APC and PDFLib from pecl
# APC cd /usr/local/php52 sudo ./bin/pecl install apc # ignore warning about php suffix # PDFLib sudo port install pdflib sudo ./bin/pecl install pdflib -path to pdflib installation? /opt/local
