  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1

Your article is a great help. I am an art professor who manages one of the few Mac labs on our campus. The university has moved all of its web to FrontPage Server. I am also responsible for my department's web and I do not find Virtual PC a very eloquent solution to maintaining the website. OS X and Apache has made it possible to serve our own web address. Until your article I had no idea how to get the ~ out of the address. Thanks!


I am interested in knowing if the OS X Apache server will allow me to have more than one static IP or name server addresses on Mac? Any hope that you will address this issue?

    David,

    Glad you like the articles. To answer your question, yes, you can set up Apache to listen to more than one IP address - the technique is part of something called "virtual hosting". Sadly, we won't be touching on it in our series.
