  • On Linux, GLIBC 2.27 or newer is required, so distributions with Linux kernel 4.18 and newer are supported. For example: Ubuntu 18.04, Debian 10, CentOS 8, Fedora 28, and newer versions of these distributions.

  • All extensions except imap and vips are built on Linux.



  • Update homebrew and the formulae:
brew update
  • Check that the required PHP version is installed. This tap works with PHP from both shivammathur/php tap and homebrew/core tap:
php -v
  • If not, install the required PHP version, For example to install PHP 7.4:
brew tap shivammathur/php
brew install shivammathur/php/[email protected]
brew link --force --overwrite [email protected]

Refer to shivammathur/php tap for more information about installing PHP.

Install PHP Extensions

  • Add Tap shivammathur/extensions:
brew tap shivammathur/extensions
  • Then install the required extension. See Formula directory for available formulae.

  • For example, to install Xdebug on PHP 7.4:

brew install [email protected]

Upgrade extensions

  • For example, to upgrade Xdebug on PHP 7.4.
brew upgrade [email protected]


  • Make sure you ran brew update before installing PHP.

  • Run brew doctor and fix the warnings it reports.

  • Make sure homebrew has correct permissions.

sudo chown -R "$(id -un)":"$(id -gn)" $(brew --prefix)
  • Check if your issue is a Homebrew's common issue.

  • If you are still facing an issue, please create a discussion thread here.
