    You will have to do some careful reading & learning to achieve satisfactory results.

    I would recommend starting here, and then doing a Google search for "mac os x php mysql" or whatever to fill in any blanks.

    ya those are great too. be sure to be careful about which instructions you follow, as the O'reilly ones overlap the other ones

    Installation problems

    I've installed the MySQL package from the entropy website, and I have tried running the following command in Terminal:

    After entering my password, I got an error saying:

    "Sorry, the host 'macktheknife.local.' could not be looked up. Please configure the 'hostname' command to return a correct hostname."

    Any suggestions?
