Hey so basically as the title suggests I want to develop a PHP website on my Mac, the site will not be hosted on my laptop but will be hosted on an Irish web hosting server.

Anyway I am wondering what is needed to develop on the Mac? I just started my Apache server for anticipation of testing the page.

Now there is a thread on here about it, but it's over 3 years old so I assume in the last 3 years there has been better development in this area.

Any help is very much appreciated!

At last a newbie to the forums who didn't bump an old thread.:) As for the answer - xampp is a package you can use which is cross platform including mac. An installation copy with documentation can be found at http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-macosx.html
