I recently got PHP working on OS X using the default instalation of PHP and Apache on OS X. I am having a problem though, php isn't liking my XHTML document starting with the <?xml tags I am using nested php inside of my xhtml documents, ergo I don't want to echo"<?php...>" into my documents, I would just like to know if there's a workaround to this. The main problem is that I cannot locate my php.ini file on OS X, so I tried creating one in /usr/lib but php isn't reading it. Because supposedly, short_open_tags*=*off corrects this issue.
