Sendmail Enabler 1.04

Category : Technology/php.txt

Updated Sendmail Enabler with a new tab to check OS X's built-in web server to see if PHP is enabled (it's not by default since 10.2.x). If it is not, it will make the right incantations to turn it on.

Actually, it just copies a file containing the PHP-related directives to Apache's /etc/httpd/users directory. This file can be easily deleted to reverse the process. It doesn't touch Apache's main httpd.conf file.

With PHP enabled, a user can easily make a stock OS X Mac run a weblog, in addition to the web, mail and DNS services that I've already described (in the articles on the right side-bar).
