Installing PHP5 on OS10.3

I just successfully installed PHP5 on my Mac. Now I can run PHP softwares. Next I have to figure out how to install MySQL too.

It's simple: you just download the package installer from here and run it. Then open up a PHP file residing in the Sites folder in your user folder with the URL in your web browser.

I was unsuccessful at first because the instructions did not mention a critical step. I cleared this up with the author of the package installer.

You have to go to the System Preferences, click on Sharing and turn on Personal Web Sharing.
