Little while ago I bought myself a new Macbook Pro which in my opinion is just excellent piece of hardware in such a lovely case. As with any new machine I get it always takes some time to live in, setup everything you need to get going and so on. Since I’ve been a longtime Windows user I’ve really got used to the regular (at least once a year) re-installations. From that experience I’ve learned that it’s always good if you have a list of things you need to bring over, install and configure. This series of posts is bit of both – hopefully helpful resource for someone who wants to setup WordPress on their Snow Leopard machine and a reminder for myself in case I need to go through it again.
This is the first, introductory, post in the series of posts where I cover all the details that I had to go through to setup WordPress so I could start working on new themes for our customers. I wanted to use as many components as possible that come with Mac OS X Snow Leopard. More specifically Apache and PHP. For components that are not available with Mac OS X natively we’ll use Macports.
So lets dig into how to setup your system to install and run WordPress development environment in most convinent way.
