  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   problems starting web sharing

From:   jonners
I am running panther 10.3 on a G4 with airport. I have tried to install PHP using this: http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php/


but the installer said there was an error on line #25 of httpd.conf


I wanted to restart or check that apache was workign so went to system preferences and turned web sharing on.......but is says, ;starting' and just stays like that and never starts. Can anyone think why?


Thanks,


jon

    you can't start web sharing if there are errors in httpd.conf

    If you haven't changed httpd.conf ever, then copy the httpd.conf from another mac os x computer. The .bak and .default files on my mac are for unix computers - they tell apache to look in public_html instead of Sites and have not been customized for os x.
