Apache, MySQL, PHP install
webEdition Software has released , an open-source tool enabling Mac OS X users to install Apache server, MySQL and PHP easily. The MAMP, a compilation of Apache, MySQL, PHP, Turck MMCache and PHPMyAdmin for Mac OS X, was specially designed for Mac enthusiasts to simplify the "cumbersome installation process--one that involved modifying the configuration files, terminal windows and other operations.... Now Mac users can download the MAMP, and with just a few clicks, install the software bundle in a folder...The MAMP will not interfere with a user's system configuration, nor will an existing installation of Apache/MySQL be affected by the MAMP: both systems can run in parallel. The MAMP can be conveniently uninstalled simply by deleting the MAMP folder."
