MAMP with imap ssl2 minutes to read
Just for the record, I'm posting this in the current version of MAMP, that is 2.1.1 and in the Mountain Lion OSX 10.8.1 version. I'm not sure if it works the same way on other versions, but you can leave a comment about it 🙂
You can check if your
SSL Support enabled on the
So, how can we enable it and make it work?
Then you'll need the MAMP Server components and libraries and the php source files, since the MAMP Server components and libraries doesn't bring the php 5.4.4 used on the options available (we are aiming for php 5.4.4!). You can download them on php.net website.
Unzip it to the
/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.4/include/php/ folder (create the folders if they don't exist).
If you don't have
autoconf on your machine then you use the one supplied on the MAMP Server components and libraries.
Start by unzipping the
autoconf-2.68.tar.gz file and go to terminal on that folder and run:
./configure make make install
Now that we have all the files and binaries needed, let's build the
imap-2007e lib files needed to compile the new
Start by unzipping the imap-2007e.tar.Z from the MAMP Server components and libraries and go to the terminal on that folder and run:
make osx EXTRACFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch x86_64 -g -Os -pipe -no-cpp-precomp"
This will create the
c-client/c-client.a files needed in your local library. Let's copy them:
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/include sudo cp c-client/*.h /usr/local/include/ sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib sudo cp c-client/*.c /usr/local/lib/ sudo cp c-client/c-client.a /usr/local/lib/libc-client.a
Building our imap.so
Now we are ready to start compiling the php module. Go to the
/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.4/include/php/ folder created previously on the terminal and run:
./configure cd ext/imap phpize ./configure --with-imap=/usr/local/imap-2007 --with-kerberos --with-imap-ssl=/usr/ make
Now, if everything went as expected, you can copy the new imap.so to the MAMP library:
cp modules/imap.so /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.4/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/
After restarting your Apache on MAMP, confirm that you can see the
SSL Support set as
imap group on your
I think I didn't forget anything, but feel free to comment if I missed any step.
