Updating postgres from 9.3 to 9.4 on MacOSX

Working with Heroku I recently wanted to pull the Heroku production DB to my local DB. Using pg:pull I got the following error message:
pg_dump: aborting because of server version mismatch
because Heroku uses PostgreSQL 9.4 and my local version was 9.3.
So I had to update my local DB; this is what I did:

1) shut down db and remove launch agent plists:
launchctl unload ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist
rm ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql*

2) remove links to old binaries, install new version (links automatically):
brew unlink postgresql93
brew install postgres

Note that I do not yet uninstall the old binaries, we need them to run pg_update later!

3) Link the new launch agent plist
ln -sfv /usr/local/opt/postgresql/*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents

4) create a new empty cluster with the same locale as the old one:
initdb /usr/local/var/postgres9.4 --locale=en_US.UTF-8

5) run the upgrade script (using the binary of the new version)
pg_upgrade -v \
-d /usr/local/var/postgres \
-D /usr/local/var/postgres9.4 \
-b /usr/local/Cellar/postgresql93/9.3.5/bin \
-B /usr/local/Cellar/postgresql/9.4.5_2/bin

6) start new server and uninstall the old version:
launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist
brew uninstall postgresql93

7) optional: re-install the pg rem for my ruby app
gem uninstall pg

Hope this helps somebody!

PHP and MySQL on MacOSX 10.5. Leopard

After installing Leopard, the previous Apache configuration file in /etc/httpd/httpd.conf is no longer used. The Apache configuration sits in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf now.
In order to enable PHP again, I uncommented the following line first:
LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache2/
Second, to get my virtual hosts running again, I used the adapted Leopard version of Patrick Gibsons excellent utility which even automatically moves all prior (Tiger) virtual hosts.
Finally to get rid of the error
Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/mysql/'
I successfully followed the steps found here:
sudo mkdir /var/mysql/
sudo ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/mysql/mysql.sock

Everything is up and running fine now.

Using Finks svk on MacOSX with zsh

Some days ago I tried installing svk on MacOSX using fink. Everything worked fine except when I finally tried to use it:
aljoscha% svk
Can't locate Class/ in @INC 
(@INC contains: /System/Library/Perl/5... [snip] ...5.8.1 .) at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/ line 6.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/ line 6.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/svk line 6.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/svk line 6.
The solution was not so obvious to me: Fink sets its paths in /sw/bin/ (/sw/bin/init.csh for csh users respectively) Putting a
source /sw/bin/
into your ~/.zshrc makes svk happy.
