Compiling Apache and PHP (and MySQL) on Mac OS X Leopard

I wrote a tutorial about compiling Apache and PHP (and MySQL) on Mac OS X Leopard.

So I needed to recompile my PHP anyway and while doing that I thought why not just write it down for everyone. So here it it. Enjoy. is the homepage of Stanley Rost, iOS/Mac software developer and TextMate enthusiast from Berlin, Germany. I’m 31 years old and I’ve been around the web since 1998.
