    What is the best way to setup a server in a Mac?

    Hi, there are several ways to run an Apache or Nginx server in a mac for PHP development.

    1) Install the server through brew
    2) Install from source
    3) Install through packages like Wamp, Xampp and Laragon

    Out of these what do you think is the best? For my scenario, I do not want to run the server all the time especially not everytime the machine starts.

    1 or 3, whichever you would prefer.

    The web server will take minimal resources when not in use. It's fine to just let it run all the time.
