PHP version switcher for OSX

If you're on OSX with PHP installed via Brew, you may be looking for an easy way to switch between PHP versions (5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 etc). Well, this package is it.

Installation:

git clone git@github.com:sgotre/sphp-osx.git

Add /usr/local/bin to your $PATH. If you use the Bash shell, you can do this by running this command:

echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH"' >> $HOME/.bashrc

You may need to restart your shell for this to take effect.

Usage:

./sphp-osx/sphp 56
./sphp-osx/sphp 70
./sphp-osx/sphp 71
./sphp-osx/sphp 72
./sphp-osx/sphp 73

Troubleshooting

PHP doesn't work anymore when I switch versions in Bash

Bash has an executable path cache. It saves the paths of executables it has previously run. If Brew changes the path to the php executable, you may encounter this error. You have 2 options:

  • Add set +h in your ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile file. This will disable the executable path cache in Bash. However, this might slow down your Bash.
  • After you use sphp, enter the command hash -r in your shell. This will clear the executable path cache only once.
