falcon installed but not showing in phpinfo.php (Mac 10.10.5 Yosemite)

Hi, Pulling my hair out with this - please can anyone help me help myself? Although not a sysadmin, I am familiar with using a Linux CLI as root. I want to instal falcon on my office Mac so that I can get to know it properly offline before developing with it.

I have OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite running Apache/2.4.16. I have installed PHP 5.6.19, MySQL 5.7.11, and phpMyAdmin 4.5.5.1. Everything is running and accessible. I have a web root under my User directory and can see http://localhost/~Roy/phpinfo.php. I can access MySQL as root from the CLI (Terminal). I can import and manipulate MySQL databases through phpMyAdmin or the CLI. I can read the apache error logs at /var/log/apache2/error_log and php logging is enabled.

I installed home-brew and then installed phalcon. The only issues I get are:

Build complete.
Don't forget to run 'make test'.

Installing shared extensions:     /usr/local/Cellar/php56/5.6.19/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20131226/

Thanks for compiling Phalcon!
Build succeed: Please restart your web server to complete the installation

I have added 'extension=phalcon.so' to my php.ini file and ensured that this is the file being loaded by checking phpinfo.php. I have restarted apache and the Mac many times. I have re-run the installation process many times. I am getting no apache or php errors in the log. Whatever I do, I cannot get phpinfo.php to show any sign of anything to do with phalcon, nor is it listed in a printr(getloaded_extensions()); (see below).

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to find out what the problem might be please? Do I have all the correct PHP dependancies loaded up?

Thanks. That seems a bit extreme given that I have a local server environment up and running already, but if all else fails (i.e. if no other successful suggestions are made), I will certainly give it a go.

And php is loading extensions from thos directories ?

I know nothing about homebrew, nor how php integrates with it, but I will investigate this further, thanks. This is the first time I have done anything like this on a Mac that relies on third-party extras.

I asked for help to help myself and that is exacly what you have given me - thanks :)

I checked in phpinfo.php to see where the php extensions were being loaded from - /usr/local/php5/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20131226/

I did not know if phalcon.so needed to stay inside /usr/local/Cellar/php56-phalcon/2.0.10/ for some weird 'homebrew' reason, so I added a symlink from the default extensions directory to the homebrew one: sudo ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/php56-phalcon/2.0.10/phalcon.so phalcon.so

...a quick restart of apache and all is well. Thanks again :)

You just have seperated extension direction for php cli, and php that's is working with apache i guess.
