Hi. Thanks for your very helpful information. My boss wants me to put a complete, working version of our site (usually hosted at a remove server) on his laptop so he can demonstrate it at trade shows, where he won't have a connection. Can you give me an idea on how to do this? Thanks very much!

    simple, put the site into the documents folder. /Library/WebServer/Documents/ so that the index is at the root of this folder. Then start websharing via the control panel... job done. Test it by entering in a web browser on the same machine.

    It may be that you want to run PHP, you can download a package installer from http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/
