Local Host Server For Mac

  



Localhost

Here are some ways to make it easy to reconnect to shared computers and servers you frequently use: On your Mac, do any of the following: Choose Apple menu Recent Items, then choose from the list of recent servers. In the Finder, choose Go Connect to Server, click the pop-up menu to the far right of the Server Address field, then choose a recent server. Note: I am not going to lie, I know pretty much nothing about apache, servers, local host, etc so please pardon my ignorance - if there is a comprehensive or a great review out there for these things, please point me in their direction.I did try and read some online tutorials such as this one, but this all seems to be more than I need. I have some learned and then made some minimal. MacOS Server brings even more power to your business, home office, or school. Designed to work with macOS and iOS, macOS Server makes it easy to configure Mac and iOS devices. It’s also remarkably simple to install, set up, and manage. Add macOS Server to your Mac from the Mac. XAMPP is a completely free, easy to install Apache distribution containing MariaDB, PHP.

Great guide, thanks John.

Local Host Server For Mac


Just a note, in case anyone has the same issue. At first I couldn't get this to work. I tried logging out and back in (still no joy), then restarting the mac (still no joy).


Try doing both of those first. However, if, like me, you still can't get the local host site to load, try the following: You should find a file at /Library/WebServer/Documents/index.html.en . This contains the text 'It works!' referred to in the post. What I did was duplicate that file in the same folder and changed the duplicate's name to 'index.html', leaving the original in situ.


Both local and user sites then loaded. After which, I was able to delete the duplicated file and everything now works without issue. Just to be clear, leave the original file index.html.en where it is, untouched and unharmed throughout this step.

Not sure why I had to take this mysterious detour - probably something local to my machine, but if you're having trouble after following the guide above, see if it helps.
