PHP CLI weirdness in Zend Server 6.2 on OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

After upgrading recently to OS X 10.9 and installing Zend Server 6.2 I noticed that phpunit no longer functioned properly. Below is the output of the error I received.

/usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit IndexControllerTest.php
/usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit: line 2: ?php: No such file or directory
/usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit: line 3: /Applications: is a directory
/usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit: line 4: IndexControllerTest.php: command not found
/usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit: line 5: ` * Copyright (c) 2001-2013, Sebastian Bergmann <...>.

I decided to inspect the phpunit file in /usr/local/zend/bin.

vi /usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit

I could see it was pointing to the correct location of the php binary, weird! I decided to take a look at the php binary.

vi /usr/local/zend/bin/php
# wrapper for PHP CLI which sources /etc/sce.rc, thus setting the correct LD_LIBRARY_PATH and also run php CLI with the correct php.ini file
. /etc/zce.rc
$ZCE_PREFIX/bin/php.bin -c $ZCE_PREFIX/etc/php.ini "$@"

Well now, this is not what I expected to find. It appears as though Zend replaced the php binary with a shell script that will execute the PHP Binary. Mavericks does not appreciate this and interprets (correctly) this file as a shell script instead of the PHP Binary !?!

Here is what I did to fix this:

sudo cp /etc/php.ini /etc/php.ini.backup
sudo ln -s /usr/local/zend/bin/etc/php.ini /etc/php.ini
sudo mv /usr/local/zend/bin/php /usr/local/zend/bin/php.backup
sudo ln -s /usr/local/zend/bin/php.bin /usr/local/zend/bin/php

All is once again right with the world.

/usr/local/zend/bin/phpunit --version
PHPUnit 3.7.28 by Sebastian Bergmann.
