I'm going to assume you've got 10.3.9 client not server, since the server comes with mySQL preinstalled I'm pretty sure. You'll need to download and install the latest version (or maybe not the very latest, depending on what the setup on your webhost is) of mySQL from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/4.1.html. Download the installer package and it's got detailed instructions on how to start, stop and configure the mySQL server from Terminal.

PHP is already installed on your machine. You'll find a lot of good articles on how to install/update/activate PHP here: http://www.phpmac.com/

A couple of things to remember once you're done: you'll have to manually start up mySQL (as well as Apache) every time you want to view your local sites that use mySQL. I think there's instructions in the mySQL manual on how to start the daemon every time you log in, but I can't recite them from memory, sorry. Also make sure you give the mySQL root user account a password before you do anything. PHP, once enabled, is on for good.

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.
