🌐 Apache formulae for the Homebrew package manager
Latest commit 4566acd Mar 26, 2017 @BrewTestBot BrewTestBot committed with javian ab: update 2.4.25 bottle.


Homebrew Apache

How do I install these formulae?

brew install homebrew/apache/<formula>

Or brew tap homebrew/apache and then brew install <formula>.

Or install via URL (which will not receive updates):

brew install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/homebrew-apache/master/<formula>.rb


brew help, man brew or check Homebrew's documentation.


After installing httpd22 or httpd24, the configuration files will be in $(brew --prefix)/etc/apache2/2.2 and $(brew --prefix)/etc/apache2/2.4, respectively.


A common problem with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and higher is an error about a missing OSX10.8.xctoolchain, OSX10.9.xctoolchain, or OSX10.10.xctoolchain directory:

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/OSX10.10.xctoolchain/usr/bin/cc: No such file or directory

This is because the OS X tool apr-1-config returns a path for a compiler that does not exist, even with Xcode installed:

$ apr-1-config --cc
$ apr-1-config --cpp
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/OSX10.8.xctoolchain/usr/bin/cc -E
$ which apr-1-config

The simplest solution is to go to the /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/ directory and create a symlink named OSX10.8.xctoolchain, OSX10.9.xctoolchain, or OSX10.10.xctoolchain to XcodeDefault.xctoolchain. This requires you to have Xcode installed. If you only have the Xcode Command Line tools or OSX-GCC-Installer, a simple symlink will not work.

This single-line command will set up the symlink if you have Xcode installed, and if you don't, it will create directories leading up to the toolchain and a symlink to /usr/bin that will satisfy the requirements needed for apr-1-config to find the compiler it needs:

sw_vers -productVersion | grep -E '^10\.([89]|10)' >/dev/null && bash -c "[ -d /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain ] && sudo -u $(ls -ld /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain | awk '{print $3}') bash -c 'ln -vs XcodeDefault.xctoolchain /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/OSX$(sw_vers -productVersion).xctoolchain' || sudo bash -c 'mkdir -vp /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/OSX$(sw_vers -productVersion).xctoolchain/usr && for i in bin include lib libexec share; do ln -s /usr/${i} /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/OSX$(sw_vers -productVersion).xctoolchain/usr/${i}; done'"
