Build Your Own Apache Server with mod_perl and mod_ssl
Subject:   integration with Personal Web Sharing

I installed ServerLogistics Apache2 package and I am trying to set it up so that Personal Web Sharing starts Apache2 instead of Apple's Apache.

The instructions in this article were very helpful, but do not explain the modifications needed to make it work with PWS.

Anyone done this?

If I create a symlink called "apachectl" and place it in /usr/sbin, Apache2 will start up, but the GUI (PWS) never acknowledges it has started. In fact, quitting SysPrefs and then going back to PWS shows PWS is OFF (when in fact Apache2 is running!!)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you follow the instructions in this article, you end up running your web server "internally". I think if you follow the instructions on the last page of this article it will allow you to start the server with the PWS switch. You also need to edit the httpd.conf file to point to the directory normally used for the PWS. "/Library/WebServer/Documents"
