Installing php 7 on Mac

PHP & MySQL Tutorials Development

    Setting up a mac to run php 7 instead of the default php 5.5. 

    First install Homebrew if it’s not already installed.

    /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

    Then run these commands in terminal:

    brew tap homebrew/dupes
    brew tap homebrew/versions
    brew tap homebrew/homebrew-php
    brew install php70

    Update the default php version terminal uses by opening your bash profile:

    nano ~/.bash_profile

    Set the PATH:

    export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"

    Then press CTRL + x to save and exit.

    Restart terminal and enter php -v to see the php version in use.
