I have successfully installed XAMPP on my Mac. However, the latest version does not include the intl extension for php. It seemed to me that this would be a simple install, but I have not had any success.
Tried uncommenting (actually adding) the extension=intl.so line in php.ini, nope.
Tried installing intl first, via brew, autoupdate, etc. (as the tips via google search revealed), nope.
The intl extension does exist in the PC version of XAMPP, and works! Why is it easy on the PC and not on the Mac?
Of course, intl is need for Moodle, which is why I am trying.
(I posted for help on MAMP. Here's is where I stand. If I install MAMP, I cannot seem to upgrade to MariaDB. If I install XAMPP Mac, I get MariaDB but no intl extension. I trying to make one of these two AMP products have everything, meaning latest php, latest db, so that I can experiment with the latest moodle.)
