    Installing PHP and Laravel environment

    I recently got involved in a project that uses PHP and Laravel as a framework. I never used PHP before so this means starting from scratch by preparing my OSX environment for some QA and probably some minor development work.

    I found a post that seems to cover the installation on OSX of the necessary components.

    PHP 54 development on OSX with mysql and Laravel 4

    During the installation I got an error with installing zlib.

    curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
    Error: Failed to download resource "zlib"
    Download failed: http://zlib.net/zlib-1.2.7.tar.gz

    This error was corrected folowing this solution


    Laravel requires the PHP Mcrypt module. In an earlier attempt I had some trouble to get this working in my environment, but now in this setup using this command:

    brew install php54-mcrypt

    installed it correctly.
