brew install nginx

brew install mysql
unset TMPDIR
mysql_install_db --verbose --user=`whoami` --basedir="$(brew --prefix mysql)" --datadir=/usr/local/var/mysql --tmpdir=/tmp

Install php

brew tap josegonzalez/homebrew-php
brew install php --with-mysql --with-fpm

Tweak config

php-fpm

To run php-fpm in the foreground set deamonize = no in the php-fpm.conf. Should be located in /usr/local/Cellar/php/5.3.10/etc

nginx

Change the root-path in nginx.conf

Folder structure

Procfile
app
  <webapp goes here>
nginx.conf
tmp
  nginx
    logs
      access.log
      error.log

Setup script

Use the setup.rb script to quickly prepare a new project. It creates the configuration files and skeleton folder structure.

You can pass one parameter to the script, the name of the folder to use. Leave it empty to use the current directory.

Run it directly from this gist:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/gist/2585743/d4d1fdb431724675ec2c6894a083c8af3872bb6f/setup.rb)" [optional folder name]

Man this is great, thanks! Only one problem I've got: php-fpm still running in background after I stopped foreman. Do you know what could it be since I already set daemonize = no in php-fpm.conf ?
