Installing Mongo driver on MAMP/MAMP PRO

I recently acquired a Mac development station and have been loving it so far. The only hiccup I have hit so far is installing the Mongo driver in MAMP. My progress yesterday can be found here:

http://www.reddit.com/r/mac/comments/1d1iuf/newtomac_web_developer_has_a_few_questions/c9m53j7

As MAMP is running PHP 5.4.10 I tried unzipping the official 5.4.10 release so the paths matched the not found paths in my reddit post from yesterday. While that got me a bit further I hit another stumbling block.


Jareds-MacBook-Air:bin root# ./pecl install mongo

Looks like I need autoconf.


So to get autoconf it looks like people are using the brew package manager. To get brew to work properly you need to get the xcode command line tools. How do you get that? You get xcode. Yeesh.


Jareds-MacBook-Air:bin jared$ brew doctor
Your system is ready to brew.
Jareds-MacBook-Air:bin jared$ brew install autoconf

==> make install
🍺  /usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69: 69 files, 2.0M, built in 8 seconds

Hopefully the mongo driver will build now. Hold onto your butts.....


Well, it got a whole lot futher this time.... then died here:



In file included from /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/include/php/main/php.h:34:
/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/include/php/Zend/zend.h:51:11: fatal error: 'zend_config.h' file not found
# include <zend_config.h>
          ^
1 error generated.
make: *** [php_mongo.lo] Error 1
ERROR: `make' failed

Hopefully I'm getting close. After more digging it looks like I first need to configure the source code I downloaded earlier


Jareds-MacBook-Air:php jared$ pwd
/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/include/php


Jareds-MacBook-Air:php jared$ ./configure

Alright.. Seriously this time...



Jareds-MacBook-Air:bin jared$ sudo ./pecl install mongo
~~~ BLAH BLAH BLAH COMPILING ~~~
You should add "extension=mongo.so" to php.ini



Success! Now to find where it put this thing... Looks like


/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/mongo.so

Now to add it to MAMP's php.ini...

extension=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/mongo.so

Alright.. Saved. Restarting MAMP... Time to check phpinfo()... looks good! If someone would like me to clean this up into something more readable drop me a comment and I will create a new post with just the instructions.
