Ok I just got myself a new macbook pro and loving it. I'm trying to set it up as a dev environment.
I'm trying to get my basic phpinfo to work. I installed php from the venerable Marc Liyanage (http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php/#install) When i make a dummy php file called test.php with the phpinfo(); code in it, apparently running http://localhost/~username/test.php should show me something. But i get absolutely nothing. Google chrome throws me a big fat "This webpage is not available".
I'm presuming there's something fundamental i'm missing. The web service should start up on it's own according to install. I even went to System Preferences > Sharing > and made sure Web Sharing is checked. It provides me with the link as well and says that your website...available at the the "Sites" folder. I have placed the test.php in the Sites folder as well.
I'm clueless now, anyone kind enough to help troubleshoot a newb's problem?
