I know that this is going to be a weird post. But as stated I am very new to macs. I have some experience with Linux and years of experience with PCs. I have been developing websites for many years and finally came around to the fact that windows is not working for me. Anyway here is the deal. I need to know how to 'host' sites on my mac, strictly for development. In a linux system you can start the httpd and load your files into the /var/www/html folder and you could view all of the scripts, etc. I need to know how to do this as well as load mySQL and phpmyadmin onto the mac. Any help would be great.

thanks

just put phpMyAdmin in the same folder, your default username is root and no password.

You'll probably want to make yourself familiar with http://www.entropy.ch since Marc has everything spelled out really well on his site.

You can download an installer for mySQL off the mySQL site, and phpmyadmin works fine as far as I know, but you'll need to turn on PHP (or just get the latest installer package which will do it for you, I think).

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