    [Updated 12/12/2018] Updated to reflect the latest release of PHP 7.3 and the removal of PHP 7.0 from Brew.

    Part 2: macOS 10.14 Mojave Web Development Environment

    This is an updated version of our prior OS X development series. The newly released macOS 10.14 Mojave and the accompanying updates to Brew require significant changes compared to prior releases, necessitating a thorough revamp in the process. Since macOS 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.

    In Part 1 of this 3-part series, we covered configuring Apache on macOS to work better with your local user account, as well as the installation process for installing multiple versions of PHP.

    In this Part 2, we will cover installing MySQL, Virtual Hosts, APC caching, YAML, and Xdebug. After finishing this tutorial, be sure to check out how to enable SSL in Part 3 of the series.
