I was wondering if anyone would know if there are a lot of problems with setting up a website incorporating php and databases on both a mac and pc. I am setting this website up with a mate and we are alternating between both computers I do a bit he does a bit etc. I was wondering if I set up php forms for the website using php and mysql would he have any problems adding to them or changing them at all on his pc?
Any help you could give me would be really appreciated.

I think you should be fine, I have used php and mysql (database) in all platforms. Windows not to much but that is what we have in the computer lab I work in. I run Slackware 10.0 and use it no problems, from other computers without a problem on each platform. And on my PBook I installed it so I can do my development when I'm on the road. Just remember to get the correct install file for the platforms you which to use. Remember your HTML or CSS for each platform, I think that could be where you'll get more of the problems. If you need more help you ask.

I would grab a program like phpMyAdmin which is web based, or CocoaMySQL which is a standalone app, to administer your databases.---> Join the Mac-Forums Folding team: use 37954 as your team number.

use what Murlyn has suggested. At least for me I don't usually like to use apps like that. But, thats just me. on the terminal do a search for mysqld, this is the file that has to be executed for MySQL to run. Yeah you can do thing with php and other programming languages to setup and manage your databases, but this way will take longer time to actually have something that runs. So, if time is an issue go with the apps Murlyn have mentioned. If time is not an issue and you wish to learn, create the apps yourself. That's what I'm doing, takes time to have something up and running, but you'll learn a lot. At least this is my 2 cents.

Install MySQL 4.0.11 for 10.2 & 10.3 only
MySQL for Mac OS X - Pick a Mirror.
This module requires Mac OS X 10.3. It will not run on an earlier systems.
PHP Module for Mac OS X
I'd use the universal standard distributions, it's easier for integration at a later date with reusable code and scripts. Plus, if your hosting on a external or web-server, chances are your be using a standard version. Unless your thinking of hosting your own domain and server software. What ever you do, be-sure to block any security holes.
