If you want to do a website development on your MacOS you also need to set localhost environment on your Mac.

In this way, you can create a website or application and then upload it to web hosting.

Here you can read how to set your Mac in order to have a development environment for your needs.

Apache is already on your Mac, you just need to turn it on. Open the Terminal and type the following:

sudo apachectl start

User password will be requested, so you need to type in the password and then press Enter.

Then. Open your Safari (or any browser) and go to localhost.

If you see It Works! then the Apache is up and ok.
