Local servers for mac

What are some good local servers on mac which can store files like pdf,images etc. so that i can program for AJAX and PHP ? Just the way we attach files to our email and then send it, the same way i want a server which can do that.

Hi Akhter,

I'm not sure what you mean; servers don't store files, they serve them from databases. Also, an email client, such as Apple's Mail, is more than just a server. If you have a Mac and you want to transfer items between other Mac's via wifi, you could try the Airdrop feature. If you're not limited to just local wifi, there's all kinds of cloud storage solutions out there, like DropBox. Let me know if that answers your question.
