  • Install SC on Mac OSX

    Has anybody tried installing SC on OSX, and is doing development there?

    If so, are there directions or instructions anywhere on how to set it up?

    Re: Install SC on Mac OSX

    I am using Linux, but have not tried OSX. I would think the install is about the same but I could be wrong.

    In Linux:
    Download arxhive
    unzip to dir
    make sure _lib is given full permissions
    login

    but OSX may be a different animal.

    Regards,
    Scott.

      The trick is to have the zend optimizer for mac installed and PHP with mbstring an zip extensions enabled.

        hi there,

        I have everything set up right :
        php, mbstring, gd, and zip extensions enabled.
        I have uploaded the ZIP on the server, extracted it and now, when I try to install, i got a 500 internal server error....
        do you know why??

            It is because Zend Optimizer is missing.

            You should install Zend Optimizer for mac os.

                I tried exactly the same, no success. I assume scriptcase was never set up on a MAC OSX . The whole description is absolutely useless: No chance to set up Zend Optimizer correct nor the Scriptcase Modules. What is so difficult to provide a clear description for the users?

                  Hi Mac Users,
                  looks like as the Scriptcase team is not talking with us. Below is what I found so far. It is not a full solution, nevertheless I am going to post it here, perhaps someone has an idea how to proceed further.
                  In case you are running your Mac with OSX 10.6, Snow Leopard there are mutiple problems to get your licensed scriptcase version ro run. The main reason is the Zend Optimizer, I am not sure what it is good for. I assume it has something to with the license check, because the real problem is to get the execution permission for the ZendID. All the descriptions I found are for Linux, e.g.
                  sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
                  sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk
                  sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-sdl
                  The statements had no result on OSX 10.6, because those packages are not available.
                  First I installed XAMPP for MAC, no success.
                  I installed MAMP in the latest version. It includes the Zend Optimizer! and works on 10.6
                  http://www.mamp.info/de/index.html

                  Extract the scriptcase version 5 zip under the htdoc of the MAMP directory.
                  The required SQLite version comes with MAMP. (but samples were not installed!)
                  Now I was at least able to start the scriptcase installation process by calling localhost:8888/scriptcase/install.php.
                  I left the license code blank, because I could not proceed any further (=> ZEND ID execution permission)
                  During the next steps I was able to configure the system. Some minor adjustments are necessary in php.ini.
                  add to extensions:
                  extension=zip.so
                  the library can be found under xampp. post it into the extension directory.
                  Loaded the license file into scriptcase and was able to run it under a licensed version.
                  So far so good, now the remaining problems. I created and compiled menues, however all other application are causing the error "scriptcase is unable to identify server". Again not clear what this means. Is it a database mismatch?

                  A simple alternative is certainly the installation under VMware on a virtual Windows machine. It works perfect :-(, it is like driving a Porsche with a truck trailer and does not really certify for the statement "runs on Mac OS".

                  Any help, highly appreciated.

                    Hopefully they will find a solution for you quickly. I will say that since you are using a Mac, I was surprised you selected Windows for your VM. Perhaps you should give Linux a try for your VM instead. It it very quick and easy to setup... and faster than windows. If you install the server version (no gui), then LAMP is already included at time of install.

                    After years of using Windows, I use Linux as my main OS, I could not be happier.

                    Regards,
                    Scott.

                      Scott,
                      I can only agree. Problem is that scriptcase is not the only troublemaker... I never run Linux as a virtual machine, perhaps I should set it up. Is it possible to connect from a virtual machine to a sql database on OSX 10.6? So far I am using NAT, perhaps it requires direct connection or a bridge?

                        I use VirtualBox and set my network to bridged on the VM.

                        Here are a few quick tutorials of a install:

                          To explain my setup better, I have Linux as my host, and XP as a guest and they can connect fine using bridge.
                          I do have a friend that has Win7 as a host and Linux Server as a guest and he can connect in bridge mode.

                          Regards,
                          Scott.
