 Tiger and Apache / PHP

"By default, Apache has been configured to serve your personal web pages from a directory based on your Mac OS X short username. You can find your short username in the Accounts preference panel. If your short username is "morbus," you can access your personal web site by opening a local web browser and typing http://127.0.0.1/~morbus/. This 127.0.0.1 (aka localhost) is pretty special--every computer has one. Both names represent the computer itself; by accessing 127.0.0.1 in your browser, you visit the Apache activated via the Sharing preference panel."
