    You can either download Apache, MySQL and PHP and install them or you can install MAMP.

    MySQL is available as a binary from the MySQL site and it easy to install. Apache 2 is already installed by default, as is PHP 5 (5.2.8 or 5.2.9), although you need to enable it in your apache config. If you need any additional libraries other than the ones Apple have provided then you can download the source and compile it. I find that MacPorts is one of the easiest ways to get any extra libraries installed.

    It depends on your level of experience and whether you need to be able to customise your setup. I understand that MAMP is a reasonable solution if you don't need anything custom or if you don't fancy downloading/installating anything other than the one package.
