<tip author="Garrett Coakley" type="PHP on Mac OSX">

If you installed PHP on your OSX machine by using the directions at
http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php/ (which gives you a
precompiled phplib) then you'll be missing on vital component. The
php.ini file, which allows you to configure the run time options for the
php module.

Fortunately you can grab a copy from the web interface to the php CVS
server: http://cvs.php.net/co.php/php4/php.ini-dist (click on the
download link at the top right).

Create a directory called php in /usr/local/lib and make sure it's owned
by root:wheel and is chmodded to 755. Rename the downloaded file
php.ini-dist to php.ini and place it in the directory you just created.

Next, restart Apache by using:

sudo /usr/sbin/apachectl graceful

And now you'll be able to configure your php server by editing php.ini.
Remember to restart apache after any changes.
