Postfix+PHP+Drupal on OSX 10.11.11 (El Capitan) for Software Developers (a.k.a software development and testing).

How to get mail sending to work on OSX for development purposes ONLY.

OSX comes with Postfix pre-installed. All that needs to be done is to configure it AND PHP. There are a couple of configuration files involved. Each file that needs to be adjusted is attached to this gist along with the relevant configuration options and settings.

You will start by editing the Postfix config file located at: /private/etc/postfix/ You will then edit your PHP config file (php.ini) which, for me I installed via macports and was thus located at: /opt/local/etc/php56/php.ini.

These are the two pages that I used to get things working:

    • your webpages are executed by Apache

A full and verbose description of how to create patches and interdiffs for submission to the Drupal issue queue.

Drupal Patch Strategy:


  1. make changes then make patch BEFORE COMMITTING CHANGES
  • $ git diff > [project-name]-[project-version].[description].[issue-number]-[comment-number].patch
  • doesn't work when adding or deleting files
  1. you've made changes that INCLUDE adding/deleting files, BUT NOT COMMITTED
  • $ git [add|rm] ...
You can’t perform that action at this time.
