Install New Relic on Mac OS using homebrew php

1.Grab archive from and decompressed
gzip -dc newrelic-php*.tar.gz | tar xf -
cd newrelic-php*/

2.Check homebrew's PHP extension path exists

ls -al /usr/local/Cellar/php@7.2/7.2.25/lib/php/20170718/

(My PHP version is 7.2 and lib version is 20170718. Yours might be different based on PHP version. But in any case, /usr/local/Cellar/php is a good direction.)

3.Run install script with custom paths (since /usr/bin is not writeable because of macOS "system integrity protection")

NR_INSTALL_INITFILE=/usr/local/bin/newrelic-daemon-service NR_INSTALL_DAEMONPATH=/usr/local/bin/newrelic-daemon ./newrelic-install

4.Now New Relic agent has been installed and the daemon can be started using sudo newrelic-daemon-service start

5.If you don't want to use sudo, you need to change owner and group of /var/log/newrelic/newrelic-daemon.log to your own user and group.

chown staff /var/log/newrelic/newrelic-daemon.log

Then simply run newrelic-daemon

6.Ensure New Relic daemon is up and running by running

ps aux | grep newrelic

That's it, have fun with APM data!
