Since I upgraded my Mac to Mojave 10.14, I noticed PHP is incredibly slow.

When I do this from the terminal:

php -v

It takes about 4-5 seconds before showing the version number, which is:
PHP 7.1.13 (cli) (built: Feb 1 2018 13:38:42) ( NTS )

Is there a way to fix this? And, perhaps upgrade to the latest PHP (currently 7.2) while I'm at it?


I faced a similar issue on Mojave update, I was able to fix it by updating /etc/hosts file with

::1             localhost YouMacName.local       localhost YouMacName.local

You can get YourMacName.local by running in terminal:

$ hostname

I hope it helps you
