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

    Actually there is no need to install PHP its already there you just need to enable it. search for " Restoring the Apache config file after 10.2.4 update" on and read the reader comments. Many will say why not just read the tutorials that tell you how to edit the httpd.conf file to enable it. Beacuse I have done that and everytime you upgrade the system you have to do it again. The reader comments explain how to create an overide.conf so it will stay enabled even after you update your system. If you are a little command line nervous and didn't want to go the path above you can search on for "CompletePHP" You will be taken to Aaron Faaby (sic) website where he has complied click installers with control panels to install and control PHP, MYSQL, Tomcat and even Apache.

    Just throwing out some more options.
    Good Luck Hope this helps
