PHP Version Switch

Recommended Posts

Switch between multiple PHP versions






I have several versions of PHP and need to switch between them and created this workflow to make it easier.


I'm new to Alfred and this is my first attempt at a workflow and I don't know if my approach is correct or not but someone else may find this useful.








To add or delete a PHP version


phpset key path 

For example phpset 5.4 /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10/bin/php

To remove a PHP version leave the path blank.


To query current PHP version



To set PHP version




Select the required version from the list displayed as shown in the above image.




1 Setting the PHP version runs as admin and will prompt for username & password.

2 The existing /usr/bin/php is renamed as /usr/bin/php.osx

3 The key osx is set by default to point to /usr/bin/php.osx
