If you need a simple web server to test your local website on a MacOS using python, you can use the http module and spin up a quick server to test your site. Below are the steps to do it.
Navigate to the folder which you desire to host
Use the below command with the specific port number
python3 -m http.server 9000
If I have all my web files hosted in a folder call itbusinesshub, I would navigate to that folder using the terminal and use python's http.server module to host the files at port 9000.
The server then can be accessed at localhost:9000.
