Manually install FileMaker API for PHP on Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server 10.6.3

Your post

First, please note I'm obviously a rookie. When I run the "Test PHP Custom Web Publishing" the result is a blank browser page.

 

I installed FM Server on Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server 10.6.3 without the FileMaker version of PHP.

 

Per the FileMaker Server 11 Custom Web Publishing with PHP document:

 

I extracted "a file called FileMaker.php and a folder called FileMaker" from the standalone zip file that was located at /Library/FileMaker Server/Web Publishing/FM_API_for_PHP_Standalone.zip.

 

I put both the file and folder in this location: "/Library/WebServer/Documents".

 

Now, here's where I think I have a problem. The following instructions tell me to make some changes to php.ini:

 

 

If you did not install the FileMaker supported version of PHP, be sure to do the following configuration tasks on your version of the PHP engine:

- Enable the cURL module in php.ini.

- Specify the location of the FileMaker API for PHP in the include_path variable in php.ini.

- If you are accessing databases that contain dates and times, install the pear date package. For more information, see: http://pear.php.net/package/date/

 

 

Where do I find php.ini?

 

Thanks,

Mike
