PHP is also there. It is a little tougher to get going, but not much. Google "enable PHP 10.5" and you will get lots of recipes for enabling PHP in Leopard. Change the query to "enable PHP 10.4" if you are running Tiger. Basically, you have to edit a config file or two, and then restart Apache, and that is it. Pretty simple.

Here is one such article: macosxhints.com - 10.5: How to enable PHP and MySQL in 10.5

I have Apache/PHP running on both my 10.4 based PowerMac G5 and my 10.5 based Mac Pro. I use both for website development and it works well on both machines (although Tiger comes with an older version of PHP).

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
