I have my web server from Apple installed on my Mac OS X server, and now I want to add "gettext" and more to the server but how can I do it?

I can't find php/ext/ folder, :/ and I don't know how I can get a new ext/ to work with Apache.

Rather than monkeying with Apple's version (which they will update and likely break everything you modified), I suggest you check out MacPorts instead. They allow you to build Apache with variants to add the components you need.

Tanks i will try it, it is easy to install Apache, MySQL and PHP 5.3 on it? – ParisNakitaKejser Nov 6 '09 at 9:23
Yes, it just takes a while to compile some pieces. They're working on implementing binary installers. – Nerdling Nov 8 '09 at 1:27
