I’ve seen a lot of visitors searching for information on enabling PHP5 in Mac OS X Leopard. It turns out to be quite easy. Leopard ships with Apache 2 and PHP 5 pre-installed. To enable PHP simply:
- Open your favorite text editor and edit
- Uncomment line number 114. It should read
LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache2/libphp5.so
- Open System Preferences and go to Sharing
- Stop and then restart Web Sharing
