I spent the day setting up Apache, PHP 5, and MySQL 5 on my Mac for
the first time. Everything went well save for one thing: getting
Apache to see .htaccess files.
Now, I figured this would be easy to do, since there are a ton of blog
posts and threads on it (including one by PPK on thelist), however it
doesn't work and I've spent the last two hours on what (it seems to
me) should be a two minute problem.
System: Mac OS X 10.5.2
The httpd.conf is located in /etc/apache2/
The .htaccess file will be in /Library/WebServer/Documents/sites/, so /
etc/apache2/users/ *.conf shouldn't be a problem.
Here's what I have:
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
Deny from all
Allow from all
Any ideas why this doesn't work?
