  1. [WARNING]
    Detected macOS Mojave 10.14. There are serious issues with it, due to the original apache not loading

    The cli version still will.
    See this issue at https://github.com/liip/php-osx/issues/249 for details and discussion
    Restart this script with
    curl -s https://php-osx.liip.ch/install.sh | bash -s force 7.2
    to really install it

    PHP 7.1.16 (cli) (built: Apr 1 2018 13:14:42) ( NTS )
    Copyright (c) 1997-2018 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v3.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2018 Zend Technologies

    but when i check in browser using phpinfo(); it's showing old version
