Install on Mac OS X Server?

Can I install Backlight on a local Mac OS X Server for testing?

Thanks!

Re: Install on Mac OS X Server?

I don't know about that specifically, but you should be able to install it under MAMP

Re: Install on Mac OS X Server?

Mac OS X Server includes Apache, PHP and (I'm quite certain) SQLite so I'm hopeful. Usually when installing WordPress - for example - you need to create a database using with command line or PHPmyAdmin. The only think I'm not sure about is how Backlight connects with the SQL database.

Hoping to hear from someone who may have done - or failed to do - a Mac OS X Server install!

Databases are created by Backlight, no user intervention needed.

We use MAMP for Backlight development, so it definitely works in that environment. I haven't tried it on the OS X's built-in Apache.
