Notes on Setting up version on local Mac OS machine

  • I've found the best source for information on this to be at It focuses on using/configuring the tools already installed on the Mac to do this. That is PHP and Apache server are already installed. What remains to be downloaded and configured are:
    • MySQL
    • phpMyAdmin - for administering the My SQL installation
  • I had to change the default PHP configuration to permit input of larger files. This was needed to permit loading of a back up database to the local installation. In my case this entailed editing /private/etc/php.ini . For this to take effect, I had to reboot my system!
