I am currently setting up a new Mac Mini Lion server. I am now installing mongodb and apc extension. I want to include the ini settings for the extensions on the /etc/php.d directory (similar with my server settings on centOS)

I tried to do

php -i | grep php.d

and it gives me

Scan this dir for additional .ini files => /etc/php.d/
Additional .ini files parsed => /etc/php.d/apc.ini,
/etc/php.d/mongo.ini
PHP_INI_SCAN_DIR => /etc/php.d/
_SERVER["PHP_INI_SCAN_DIR"] => /etc/php.d/

But when I tried on phpinfo() on a php script, I got:

Configuration File (php.ini) Path   /etc
Loaded Configuration File   /private/etc/php.ini
Scan this dir for additional .ini files     (none)
Additional .ini files parsed    (none) 

The php environment on CLI and php script is the same which php

/usr/bin/php

and on php script page

PATH /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin

Is there anything I should set on the apache side?

I am thinking to stick with the Built-in apache and php from the mac installation because I like the Server App from Mac.

Looks like PHP CLI is using /etc/php.ini file, verify with:

php -i | grep 'Configuration File'

While Apache is loading the /private/etc/php.ini file:

Configuration File (php.ini) Path   /etc
Loaded Configuration File   /private/etc/php.ini

Point to the right php.ini file which you want by PHPINIDir directive.


EDIT

Don't know why phpinfo() ignore the additional .ini files but it can be force to scan in 2 ways:

  1. insert the below line before starting Apache in init script

    export PHP_INI_SCAN_DIR=/etc/php.d
    
  2. add the following to the Apache configuration file:

    php_value include_path "/etc/php.d"

  • /etc/ directory is actually just a symlink of /private/etc/

  • What's the output of ls -l /etc/php.d/? Run strace -ofile -f -o /tmp/apache.log /script/to/start/apache, paste the log to pastebin and insert link here.
