The plugin will only install on OpenCPN.app Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation. In case your security settings are tight, which is the default on modern macOS versions, Control-Click on the file, select Open from the context menu and confirm your intention to open the installer. I recently needed to install some Mac OS X Software Updates on an older machine that couldn’t connect to the internet. This means the option to just go to the Software Update installer built into Mac OS wasn’t happening, but I knew that upgrading the system software was likely to help alleviate the problem.

Mac OS X El Capitan can be downloaded directly from the Apple website. The Beta version of the OS is available but the final version will be made available towards the Autumn season of 2015 as speculated by many Apple users. You can use your older Mac OS with the new El Capitan, all you have to do is to create a different partition for the new El Capitan if you have the Yosemite already installed. There are few steps you should consider in downloading the latest El Capitan and these are as follow.

Part 1. Preparing Mac Device for the Installation of Mac OS X El Capitan

Both Mavericks and Yosemite are easier to download and install on Mac devices, however, this is not the case with Mac OS X El Capitan. Just before you install the new Mac OS X El Capitan, you must perform few tasks to ensure that your Mac will be ready for the installation of the software:

  • Check Your Mac - Check whether your Mac will be able to run the new OS X 10.11. Apple has provided a list of the Mac supported by the new Mac OS X El Capitan and if you are already running the Mavericks or Yosemite, the same lists may also apply to the El Capitan. You can also check this list on the “Will your Mac run Mac OS X” article on Apple website.
  • Create Enough Space - Check that your Mac has sufficient RAM to run the software. You wouldn’t run into any hitches if your Mac device is listed on the acceptable Mac devices for Mac OS X El Capitan. Apple recommend that you have a minimum RAM of 2G, however, a minimum of 4G space of RAM is highly recommended. You will also need to delete some unnecessary files to create more space for the installation of El Capitan.
  • Check Hard Drive Space - Make sure you have sufficient hard drive space for the installation of Mac OS X El Capitan. Yosemite will normally require a Hard drive space of up to 5GB , but the new El Capitan will require between 15g and 20gb of space on your hard drive for successful download and installation.
  • Register - Register to access the Mac Apple store. You need to upgrade your Mac and get access to Mac Apple store for a small fee in order to get the most out of your Mac OS X El Capitan.
  • Updates - Make sure your third party Apps are updated before installing Mac OS X El Capitan. You can simply launch App store and click on “Updates” on the tool bar if you want to update the apps you bought from Apple store. For other third party apps, you may need some manual updates from manufacturer websites to complete such updates.
  • Backup Your Mac - Perform a backup before downloading and installing Mac OS X El Capitan- you need to protect your important documents and files, thus you may have to back them up somewhere before starting the download and installation process.

Part 2. Installing Mac OS X El Capitan Safely on Your Mac Device

You can install or upgrade to Mac OS X El Capitan as a dual boot partition. You may be able to download a test version if you register for the OS X Seed program from Apple, and you can also provide a feedback to Apple in order for the company to update the software before it is finally released. You can follow these instructions to install the Beta version of Mac OS X El Capitan. It is strictly recommended that you perform a backup before you begin this process. It is important you keep in mind that Mac OS X El Capitan is still in a Beta format, thus , not all your apps or programs will work on it.

  1. Visit the Apple Beta software program page and log unto the page using your Apple ID. Simply click on “Enroll your Mac”.
  2. Click on the download link that shows up, and enter the personal redemption code given to you.
  3. Open the downloaded Mac OS X El Capitan software and preview the file in the Applications folder. Click “Continue” and then select “Agree”.
  4. Click on “Install” and then enter your admin password. You're all set!

Part 3. Installing Mac OS X El Capitan Safely on an External Drive

You don’t have to install Mac OS X El Capitan on your Mac device, you can also install it on an external hard drive, most especially when you want to access the OS quickly. You can consider Thunderbolt drives which are similar to the internal drives on Mac, or you can simply use the USB 3.0 external drive if you don’t have the Thunderbolt on your Mac. You will have to format an external drive before installing Mac OS X El Capitan, this will help to install the Mac OS X El Capitan safely on the hard drive and at the same time the configuration of your device will not be changed.

Step 1. Launch Disk Utility

Connect the external drive to your Mac device and make sure it is detected. Launch the Disk Utility tool ( go to “Utilities” and you will find it there). Choose the drive- it is located at the side bar.

Step 2. Partition

Simply click on “Partition”. Make sure the partition layout reads “1 partition”. Name the partition. You can use a name like “Mac OS X El Capitan”. Click on “Options” and ensure that the Guide partition table is chosen, and then click on “Ok”.

Step 3. Options

Click “Apply'. Open the preview file from your Mac’s application folder. Click on “Continue”. Click on the “Agree” button.

Step 4. Open

Click on “Show all disks”. Simply highlight the “External Hard Drive” on which you have just install the Mac OS X El Capitan

Step 5. InstallInstall

Click on “Install”, and enter the admin password.

I found good gist how to install PHP 5.4 and 5.3 side by side on Max OSX via MacPorts. I suppose, it is applicable for PHP 5.5 too.

Just a note. The darwinports software is now macports and you can get it at: http://www.macports.org/
If you use macports, be sure to change any refernces you may have in your calling scripts to macports as the file macports now gets installed.

My httpd.conf had some of the lines, but not all of them -- mine was missing the LoadModule and AddModule lines for php. I'm not sure why -- I don't delete any of those; I just comment them out if I'm not using them. Plus, the note above put a space in 'LoadModule'; it has no space. I didn't know about the 'apachectl graceful' trick, though -- since 'httpd -k restart' stopped working (probably around 10.2), I had just been doing it manually -- find the process, kill it, and hit httpd again -- thanks for the tip!
So for those who are missing any of the lines, here are the full lines.
In the section with all the other LoadModules:
LoadModule php4_module libexec/httpd/libphp4.so</div>
Directly below that section should be the AddModules; you need:
AddModule mod_php4.c
And then the AddType lines should be right after the language priorities (so after the AddCharset lines and after the LanguagePriority bit):
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
Then restart apache/httpd as described above, and hopefully you should be good.
BTW, the actual module should be at:
/usr/libexec/httpd/libphp4.so
So if things fail, you can check to see if that's there.
Thanks to others who posted here; it definitely helped and got me on the right track. I just had to find the module manually to write my own LoadModule line.

To build on MacOS X 10.3.5 set the environment variable CFLAGS in the following way (depending on your shell)
setenv CFLAGS '-DBIND_8_COMPAT=1 -DEAPI -O3'
export CFLAGS='-DBIND_8_COMPAT=1 -DEAPI -O3'
Then launch configure with the options:
./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man ....
The -DBIND_8_COMPAT=1 gets you over a problem in the DNS files because MacOS X has definitions for Bind9 and PHP expects Bind8 definitions. -DEAPI is needed if you build it for Apache 1.3.31. -O3 enables the gcc optimizer.
You can also add one of the following lines to your CFLAGS depending on the CPU you use to further improve speed:
-mcpu=G3 -mtune=G3
-mcpu=G4 -mtune=G4
-mcpu=G5 -mtune=G5
