I just got a new machine to work on and building off my own previous advice, I set it up as a brand new machine and migrated nothing from my old one. That being said I had to go about rebuilding my entire dev environment and installing all my applications. While doing so I came across a great write up by Neil Gee on how to quickly get a localhost web server environment going in Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The how to was a huge time server and I thought I would repost it here. So, if you work in a LAMP development environment and find yourself upgrading or getting a new Mavericks machine, this guide will come in very handy.
