    Part 3: macOS 10.13 High Sierra Web Development Environment

    This is an updated version of our prior OS X development series. The newly released macOS 10.13 High Sierra requires significant changes compared to prior releases, necessitating a thorough revamp in the process. The main change is why now use Homebrew's Apache, rather than the built-in version, but it should continue to work on prior OS X versions.

    In Part 1 of this 2-part series, we covered configuring Apache on macOS Sierra 10.13 High to work better with your local user account, as well as the installation process for installing multiple versions of PHP. In Part 2, we covered installing MySQL, Virtual Hosts, APC caching, YAML, and Xdebug.

    In this Part 3, we will cover getting your site setup with SSL support for this setup.

    Part 1: macOS 10.13 High Sierra Web Development Environment

    This is an updated version of our prior OS X development series. The newly released macOS 10.13 High Sierra and the accompanying updates to Brew require significant changes compared to prior releases, necessitating a thorough revamp in the process. Since 10.12 we now use Homebrew's Apache, rather than the built-in version, but this new appraoch is more flexible and should continue to work on prior OS X versions.

    Developing web applications on macOS is a real joy. There are plenty of options for setting up your development environments, including the ever-popular MAMP Pro that provides a nice UI on top of Apache, PHP and MySQL. However, there are times when MAMP Pro has slow downs, or out of date versions, or is simply behaving badly due to its restrictive system of configuration templates and non-standard builds.

    It is times like these that people often look for an alternative approach, and luckily there is one, and it is relatively straight-forward to setup.

    In this blog post, we will walk you through setting up and configuring Apache 2.4 and multiple PHP versions. In the second blog post in this two-post series, we will cover MySQL, Apache virtual hosts, APC caching, and Xdebug installation.
