Most freelance programmers have their own servers. Give him/her the html/css files and for scripting purposes, it's not that hard. Tell him/her they'll be pulling data from these table names with these column names. Tell him/her what variables need to be passed to other pages you've designed. Tell him/her what variables would be passed to the page that's being built. You can fill in the database connection info yourself later on. Once they've built the page on their own server they can hand it to you to test for yourself.
