Unable to change PHP version in AMPPS

Lately I switched from MAMP to AMPPS but I’m still a bit unsure if that was the right move. I got a bit tired with the MAMP interface and not having an easy softaculous installer for testing, though things worked perfect.

sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.virtualbox.startup.plist

Mcrypt PHP extension required

During my Laravel install I had some issues using the terminal, they all turned out to be linked to one issue:

Mcrypt PHP extension required

To solve this we need to open the bashrc file again which we also used during our install. Add the following line at the bottom of the script, this will ensure the use of AMPPS php, you can also use the MAMP path if wanted. Save the file (ctrl+x) and make sure the file is loaded again.

nano ~/.bashrc
export PATH="/Applications/AMPPS/php/bin:$PATH"
source ~/.bashrc
