to create the directory and file, you'll need to run the terminal
application. from there, type
sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib
to create the necessary directory. you should get prompted for a password.
type your own password. you need to do this from an administrator account.
the first account created during the install process is an administrator
are you sure you don't have a copy of php.ini on your system? try
from the terminal window. if there is one, you can copy it to the
sudo cp php.ini /usr/local/lib/
if you don't have one, you can download the distribution from php.net and
copy php.ini-dist from there to /usr/local/lib and rename it
sudo mv php.ini-dist /usr/local/lib/php.ini
anyone know a better way to just get php.ini?
a couple great sites for macosx
hope this helps,
