My copy of Leopard arrived at 2pm today (four hours early - well done, Apple), and I’ve installed it on my MBP to see what the impact will be on my system.
I have found that it’s somehow killed web sharing. I get 403 errors. I suspect that the PHP install that I got from Marc Liyanage needs updating.
My MySQL install seems fine - and I can use Navicat to access the databases.
For those of you keen to be hot off the starting blocks, this may be something to be cautious about. My MBP isn’t in regular daily work service, so it’s been pressed into Leopard “stunt work”. It does seem that MAMP works, and I can copy databases from the MySQL install to the MAMP MySQL server with ease.
Naturally, if this were a work machine, it would be all hands to the pumps to get MAMP set up as the default web server for my development efforts.
Let this be a cautionary tale for you all - if you have two machines, install Leopard on your stunt double and check that all is well before proceeding to your main workstations. If you don’t have a stunt double, then install Leopard only if you are confident that core software won’t fail on you.
Looks like it, yes. Documentation linked to from the Apache boilerplate says “Apache HTTP Server Version 2.2” and I had to edit the httpd.conf file in the Apache2 folder. You get PHP 5.2.4 if you edit that file too.
