MAMP/Apache environment vars question

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone would know why in MAMP when I view the phpinfo(), the PATH info under Apache Environment is different than what I specify in the Apache 'envvars' file. Apache seems to be getting the PATH info from somewhere else and I can't quite figure out where. I am using just MAMP; not the pro version. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I think it's actually getting it from the OS.I haven't even heard about an "envvars" file to be honest... you could instead use "SetEnv" in the httpd.conf or .htaccess files though, if you want to use a PATH specific for Apache.

I thought it was getting it from the OS too but the OS environment PATH is different than what phpinfo() displays in the Apache Environment section.I looked for "SetEnv" in httpd.conf, wasn't able to find anything to do with that.. Thanks.

boen, so basically I have to insert into the httpd.conf file somewhere(example)? SetEnv SPECIAL_PATH /foo/bin

Yes, except that if you specify the name of an existing variable, you'll overwrite it. As per your initial example, you'll probably want "SetEnv PATH /foo/bin".
