    All you have to do is to activate the apache webserver (System preferences -> Sharing -> Services -> Personal Web Sharing).

    But before you do that you need to edit your http.conf file to include the php modules:

    - find the file /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
    - open that using your favourite text editor
    - find these lines (line number may vary slightly) and remove the '#' to uncomment/
    240: #LoadModule php4_module libexec/httpd/
    284: #AddModule mod_php4.c
    - exit and save the http.conf file (should require authentification and/or admin password)
    - (re)start the Personal Web Sharing and access whatever is in your ~/Sites/ folder on http://localhost/~yourname/
