[development] Developing for Drupal 7

Having checked out the comments in http://acquia.com/blog/stacking-drupal it
seems that Acquia DAMP still doesn't support Snow Leopard - but this is a
little weird, as I have got ADAMP working on a clean user account on Snow
In my own user account, I have done sudo killall httpd to make sure that
there are no Apache instances running, so I don't think it's that either.
I'm now set up with MacGDBp and XDebug and Textmate, and it seems to be
working fine - now to dive in to D7 core!

> Hey James,
> Do you already have an instance of apache running? OSX ships with apache,
> I think you can turn it on accidentally by enabling web sharing or something
> along those lines--sorry I don't have 10.6. All apache installations run on
> port 80 by default, and you can get a slightly cryptic error similar to what
> you are seeing (not rocking damp here so I am only guessing).
> As far as damp vs xampp, I'm sure damp is a great product and probably has
> some nice drupal integrations. You can run drupal on any stack tho--I've
> had good success setting people up with MAMP. So trying another stack may
> resolve things or at least help you figure out if your issues are
> application specific.
> Debuggers can be a little tricky--there's a nice vim php debugger guide you
> can easily google for. I wouldn't recommend the vim route if you aren't
> already familiar with vim tho. Other than that, I believe eclipse has
> support for debugging integration.
