  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   server running?

It appears that your server is not running. From a terminal, try the command

sudo apachectl start

which may give you some diagnostics on conflicts or permissions. On my G4 PowerBook running OS X 10.4.3 the httpd.conf file is in /etc/httpd

Good luck, Andreas

    Thank's Andreas, but it doesn't seem to be the probleme.?!

    The terminal gave me this answear:
    /usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd (pid 123) alredy running ...

    I can find the file httpd.html.html, but I just can't find the httpd.conf file. I've searcht the whole machine.

    I'll serach one more time...:-/

      Good, your server is running. Next, check the advanced options in your firewall settings (system preferences -> Sharing-> Firewall->Advanced, and make sure that the stealth mode is turned off. Don't ask me why, I am new to this, too.


      P.S.: You may need to search from a terminal to find your httpd.conf file, try the command

      cd /etc/httpd

      and then

      ls -la

      and see what you get.

        I don't have an HTTPd.conf file. I used the search terms above and it just seem like I haven't had one for a couple of years. When I do a search nothing comes up. Can I get one from somewhere or have apache create another?
