Installation on macos using brew


When i try installing phalconphp in MACOS using homebrew

brew install php71-phalcon

i got this error

Error: No available formula with the name "php71-phalcon"

I am still looking for solutions.


Have you done brew tap homebrew/homebrew-php? What output have you got? My guess it could be dealing with Mac Osx version, as some of my brew packages have been broken too when I upgraded to High Sierra.


I think most of the phalcon brew has been deprecated Error: homebrew/php was deprecated. This tap is now empty as all its formulae were migrated.

Is there a way to ask the phalcon guys to update the install instructions on the website? The Mac install instructions still reference the deprecated libraries and no longer work: https://docs.phalcon.io/en/3.3/installation
