First, are you setting up a OSX Server ? And / Or just setting up a
localhost server for development. Aside from installation, PHP/Postgres
will operate pretty much the same, cross-platform. On installation,
you need to decide what versions you need/want to run since the packages
shipped with OSX are a few versions behind.
I believe the new PHP 5.2 is a significant upgrade (in terms of speed,
bug fixes, etc) and unless you're compelled to use PHP 4, I would go for
it. You can use the precompiled entropy.net packages (though I had some
difficulties with these) or compile from source.
For postgres, you want to run 8.1.5, - I believe the Fink packages are
older. There is a nice project postresqlformac on sourceforge - even
has some nice front ends for user management.
