Upgrade PHP Engine on macOS
This section provides notes on upgrade PHP on macOS computers. There seems to be no PHP binary package available in Homebrew repository for macOS 10.12.
Here is what I did to upgrade the PHP engine on my macOS computer.
1. Search for PHP binary packages managed by Homebrew:
herong$ brew search php ==> Formulae email@example.com phplint phpmyadmin phpunit php php-cs-fixer firstname.lastname@example.org ...
2. Get the "php" package information:
herong$ brew info php php: stable 7.4.12, HEAD General-purpose scripting language https://www.php.net/ Not installed From: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/blob/HEAD/Formula/php.rb License: PHP-3.01 ==> Dependencies ... ==> Options --HEAD Install HEAD version ==> Caveats ...
3. Install "php" package.
herong$ brew install php Error: homebrew-cask is a shallow clone. To `brew update`, first run: git -C /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-cask fetch --unshallow This restriction has been made on GitHub's request because updating shallow clones is an extremely expensive operation due to the tree layout and traffic of Homebrew/homebrew-core and Homebrew/homebrew-cask. We don't do this for you automatically to avoid repeatedly performing an expensive unshallow operation in CI systems (which should instead be fixed to not use shallow clones). Sorry for the inconvenience! Warning: You are using macOS 10.12. We (and Apple) do not provide support for this old version. You will encounter build failures with some formulae. Please create pull requests instead of asking for help on Homebrew's GitHub, Twitter or any other official channels. You are responsible for resolving any issues you experience while you are running this old version. Error: php: no bottle available! You can try to install from source with e.g. brew install --build-from-source php Please note building from source is unsupported. You will encounter build failures with some formulae. If you experience any issues please create pull requests instead of asking for help on Homebrew's GitHub, Twitter or any other official channels.
4. Upgrade brew:
herong$ git -C /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-cask fetch --unshallow remote: Enumerating objects: 94461, done. remote: Counting objects: 100% (91037/91037), done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (28031/28031), done. remote: Total 83177 (delta 61120), reused 77072 (delta 55130), pack-reused 0 Receiving objects: 100% (83177/83177), 39.20 MiB | 5.31 MiB/s, done.

5. Try to install PHP again. It sill says "php: no bottle available!"
herong$ brew install php Updating Homebrew... ==> Auto-updated Homebrew! Warning: You are using macOS 10.12. ... Error: php: no bottle available! ...
Looks like I need to upgrade my macOS 10.12 to a newer release. I will do it later.
