I posted earlier on how to Get Rich with PHP5.
In that article Rasmus Lerdorf writes about how to use a certain set of debugging tools as well as PECL packages and database modifications to really tweak some serious speed out of your PHP web application.
I use a powerbook G4 for my PHP hackery, so some of the tools he mentioned are not available with a deault OSX 10.4 installation.Â So I thought, hey lets write a how to install to make this work!!
First lets get a little tool called http_load. Get it here.
Untar the file.
tar zxvf http_load-12mar2006.tar.gz
I recommend copying http_load to a directory like /usr/local/bin or /usr/local/sbin … basically somewhere in your path 🙂
Now lets install kcachegrind.Â For that, follow this link over to the stray notes blog.

Running Kcachegrind on Mac OSX 10.4
Now with both of those installed, you should be ready to go!
Debug your hearts out people!
