As of Xcode5, Apple doesn't include gcc-4.2 in the command line tools. To successfully build APE on OSX, you need a copy of Xcode 4! You can find old version of Xcode and command line tools from Apple Developer center.
To install APE Server from source on OSX, you must install the latest version of XCode from the Mac App Store. Installing Xcode will allow you to easily install the necessary tools. Once Xcode is installed, goto Xcode -> Preferences -> Downloads and install the Command Line Tools.
Spidermonkey requires gcc-4.2 and g++-4.2 commands to compile, but Xcode install them simply as "gcc" and "g++". Run those two lines as root to create a symlink to the right files:
ln -s /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.2 ln -s /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.2
In order to enable MySQL support in APE Server, you first need to install the latest version of MySQL. You'll find a DMG package on the official MySQL website.
Once installed, you need to copy or link some libraries where MySAC will be able to find it. As root, do:
mkdir /usr/include/mysql/ ln -s /usr/local/mysql/include/* /usr/include/mysql ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient_r.* /usr/lib
You can omit these step if you don't wish to build Ape with MySQL support.
You should now be able to compile APE using
./build.sh command inside the APE Server source folder.
If you get the fallowing error:
ld: warning: ignoring file /usr/lib/libmysqlclient_r.dylib, file was built for unsupported file format ( 0xce 0xfa 0xed 0xfe 0x 7 0x 0 0x 0 0x 0 0x 3 0x 0 0x 0 0x 0 0x 6 0x 0 0x 0 0x 0 ) which is not the architecture being linked (x86_64): /usr/lib/libmysqlclient_r.dylib
You installed MySQL 32 bits on a 64 Bits system.
For MySQL support, Ape requires the
libmysqlclient_r.* libraries. First, copy
/usr/local/mysql/lib/ or install MySQL using the DMG from the MySQL website. Run the same command as described in the MySQL Support section of this page.
Ape can then be run as usual using the
./aped command inside
./bin. If the library is missing, errors will be thrown and Ape won't be able to work.
