create a local web server using MAMP

Today I set up a development environment on a Macintosh computer for building PHP web applications with Adobe Dreamweaver and a MySQL database server (MAMP).

MAMP is a collection of things, it contains Apache web server and MySQL database server and supports PHP. That’s what is called a “stack.”

-web server

-database server

-web application

 

Now that I have my environment set up. I can develop and test my wordpress site with dreamweaver while hosting it through a local server.

 

This article offers more detailed information on the above and I found it very helpful.
