Post-Mac Mavericks install tasks

stuff I needed to do in order to restore some functionality once updating to Mavericks.

(Uses native apache/php with homebrew supplements, no MAMP or similar packages required.)

here we go:

* update .bash_profile in ~/
# Set architecture flags
export ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64"
# Ensure user-installed binaries take precedence
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
# Load .bashrc if it exists
test -f ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc

$ xcode-select --install

* You will then be asked whether you want to install Xcode or 
    the command line developer tools, with the latter being the default.

* install Homebrew:
$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

* install some utils:
$ brew install bash-completion ssh-copy-id wget

* install mysq
$ brew install mysql --enable-local-infile

# To have launchd start mysql at login:
#    $ ln -sfv /usr/local/opt/mysql/*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents
# Then to load mysql now:
#   $ launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.mysql.plist
# Or, if you don't want/need launchctl, you can just run:
#   $ mysql.server start
#   $ mysql_secure_installation

$ sudo mkdir /var/mysql
$ sudo ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/mysql/mysql.sock

* php myadmin:
$ brew tap homebrew/dupes
$ brew tap josegonzalez/homebrew-php
$ brew install phpmyadmin

$ sudo cp /usr/local/share/phpmyadmin/ \ 

#  no problems as of yet. was able to compile extensions with brew and link those
#  to the native Apache/PHP setup via php.ini
$ sudo cp /etc/php.ini.default /etc/php.ini
    # and merge previous php.ini
# Zend Opcache seems to be more stable than APC:
$ brew install php54-opcache
    # copy/link .so file and update php.ini

* redis:
$ brew install redis
* phpredis:
$ brew install php54-redis
    # copy/link .so file and update php.ini

* Apache
#  was generally fine, might need to change some perms, particularly if
#  putting web directories under your home folder, e.g., Dropbox.
#  this fixed that: (you could update your groups theoretically to avoid
#  setting the search (+x) permission for "other".
$ sudo chmod -R g+x Dropbox/
$ sudo chmod -R o+x Dropbox/
