Installing NewRelic into MAMP on Mac OS X

Easy as pie if you know how to do it :)

  • Download the New Relic installer files (as a .tar.gz package)
  • Find out your MAMP PHP path (mine was /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.3.6/bin)
  • Go to your unpacked new relic installer files and execute
sudo NR_INSTALL_PHPLIST='<your mamp php path>' ./newrelic-install
  • Follow the instructions in the installer (don’t forget to edit your php.ini, the installer gives you instructions on what to add)

And voilá, worked like a charm :)

PS: New Relic is kind of awesome!
