Both for Windows and Mac there are few web development environments available for download on the internet but I will be discussing only two of them.

WAMP for Windows

WAMP is wonderful that is very easy to set up on a Windows computer. It provides you with all the tools you need to have your own Windows-based web server. WAMP stands for Windows (your operating system), Apache (server), MySQL (database), and PHP (script) and that is all you need to set up a web server.

MAMP for Mac

MAMP is another software that allows you to set up a web server environment on your Mac. It previously used to stand for Macintosh Apache MySQL PHP but recently it has been renamed to My Apache MySQL PHP as it now supports both Windows and Mac. I have never installed it personally as I have always been a windows person but recently I purchased a Macbook so I will update this as soon as I can. Stay tuned.
