    I'm trying to design my website and learn PHP at the same time, but unfortunately when i return to university next week, i won't have access to an internet connection for my pbook for the best part of 2 months. I really want to carry on developing my site, and have just started playing around with the apache web server included with OS X, which i believe would allow me to carry on developing and testing my site while i don't have access to my usual web server. I've never had to install php or mysql or anything like that on the server i usually use, because it was already pre-installed. Could somebody give me brief run through on how to install php and mysql, because i'm a bit out of my depth to be honest!

    Cheers in advance!

    This site has a great series of tutorials to get you up and running with Apache on Mac OS X, including PHP/MySQL.
