This is an attempt to share the daily experience with my new apple imac. In doing so I will be adding some interesting information either I find on the net or create by myself. Obviously I have neither any influence nor control over any of the external links you find on this blog. Happy Reading!

Install Apache2, PHP5 and MySQL in OSX

It took me almost a day to figure out how to install Apache2, PHP5 and MySQL on my iMac. Lack of proper guidelines for OSX users makes it harder for someone to decide what to install and how. If you search on the web you will find all different versions of each of the above software. The question is which version is secure and easy to install. After googling I have found the following two links. After following the instructions I have succeeded in installing Apache2 but due to some reason PHP 5, I couldn’t install.


At last I found an easy way out. I downloaded MAMP from here and copied it to the Application folder. That’s it. It is for free and all three apps. Preconfigured.
