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 (5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, etc). Well, this package is it.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:sgotre/sphp-osx.git
/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.
./sphp-osx/sphp 54 ./sphp-osx/sphp 55 ./sphp-osx/sphp 56 ./sphp-osx/sphp 70
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:
set +hin your
~/.profilefile. This will disable the executable path cache in Bash. However, this might slow down your Bash.
- After you use
sphp, enter the command
hash -rin your shell. This will clear the executable path cache only once.
