I have been trying to figure this out for weeks now. I have been able to download Phalcon and compile it on my mac, but I am not sure where to go from there. I tried to add the extension to the php.ini file like this: extension=phalcon.so in the terminal but i am not sure if that worked or what it did. Basically, I am trying to use phalcon loaclly with MAMP, and also with the files on my at&t server so i can reate a RESTful API. Is there anyone that can help me out? Thanks!
