I’m having this same issue, I can’t seem to get the pdo_mysql extension to install on my local Mac. I haven’t tried the mcrypt extension yet.... Did you ever get this issue resolved? Can you share the solution?
Dude! He’s running MAC OS X 10.5, they don’t do .dll’s!
I think you’ll find the PHP distro from Mark Liyanage to be the best out there. It doesn’t require an entirely new Apache, PHP, MySQL install on your server. I ran this set up for months as Magento was moving toward 1.0
You can use the instructions Apple now provides at Apple’s OS X Server MySQL libraries download tech note page. This page specifically installs the MySQL libraries, including pdo_mysql. The weird thing is that, after installing it, the php_info does not show it, but the Magento installer DOES see it (after the obligatory restarting of Apache).
This still does not solve the mcrypt or mhash problems for OS X Server (and no, I can’t use any other installation of php or MySQL other then the Apple-installed one).
This is great for solving the pdo_mysql extension issue.. but I tried to install Magento from scratch on my local Mac OS X 10.5.6 and some other librairies are missing :
“You are missing the gd extension
You are missing the mcrypt extension
You are missing the pdo_mysql extension”
I’m pretty much sure GD can be installed without any problems as It’s a common library, but has anyone successed the mcrypt install ?
Users that tried to install through MAMP, is mcrypt bundled with it ?
