Brew PHP Switcher Build Status

Brew PHP switcher is a simple script to switch your Apache and CLI configs quickly between major versions of PHP.

If you support multiple products/projects that are built using either brand new or old legacy PHP functionality and you find it a pain to change config files continually this will make the whole process just one command.

Caveats

For users of OSX only who have installed PHP via Homebrew and for PHP version 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0 and 7.1 only.

Your Apache config must have native osx PHP module commented out.

#LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache2/libphp5.so

Brew PHP Switcher will automatically add the Homebrew's PHP module location in the Apache config in the following format.

LoadModule php5_module /usr/local/opt/php53/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so
LoadModule php5_module /usr/local/opt/php54/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so
LoadModule php5_module /usr/local/opt/php55/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so
LoadModule php5_module /usr/local/opt/php56/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so
LoadModule php7_module /usr/local/opt/php70/libexec/apache2/libphp7.so
LoadModule php7_module /usr/local/opt/php71/libexec/apache2/libphp7.so
