    I am working on a PHP site and I wanted to test it locally, to aviod the hassal of uploading it each time I wanted to test it. I went through the steps of editing the httpd.conf file and enabled PHP on apache and everything worked great. Then one day I decided to install PHP 5, I installed it and it worked fine for a while, then apache started to not work, I would get a "Could not connect to the server 'http://localhost/' because there is no server by that name". So I updated Apache to 2.0, that fixed it for a while, but PHP wouldn't work, so I downloaded the PHP 5 update for apache 2, from entropy.ch. It won't install.

    Any ideas?

    I second the LAMPP thing. It's no hassle at all to set up, and even comes with the (crappy) phpMyAdmin.

    I use MAMP. Drag the app to your Applications folder, open it, and there you go :)
