[ MAC OSX ] Error installing phalcon-developer-tools

Hello everybody,

first of all, i want to thanks the team (or business) behind this awesome framework. You guys are foda!

Well, after updating my php (now running 5.4.6 by Liip* ) and installing properly the Phalcon extension, i've got stuck trying to make phalcondevtools work. After all the steps followed by Phalcon's site when i try to run the "phalcon" command it just throw me this error:

bash ERROR: Phalcon extension isn't installed, follow these instructions to install it: https://phalcon.io/documentation/install

The problem is, i have phalcon's extension installed, I'm running apps locally that make use of this framework, it is impossible to it not to be installed.

Can someone explain why this would be happening? Anyone experienced some issues while using phalcondevtools in OSX?

Hi Claudio, sometimes the PHP on CLI uses a different php version with a different php.ini, you can check what php.ini is using your CLI installation by running:

php -i | grep Loaded
