Hi,

I have a critical problem! Suddenly my Mac OsX server is not routing traffic to my websites, and just sends all traffic to the server website. I do not think I have done anything for this to change, but it has worked correctly for a few years now. This means all of my websites are basicly offline!


Can anyone give me any tips on how to fix this? I see there is no green light on the left side of each site (see pictures).


I have tried to restart the mac and the server program. I have also tried to turn Websites off and on again.


I have OS X El Capitan, and Server app version 5.2.

Hmmm... I have not made any changes and it has been working for years.... "Host headers" is not something I thought I had to worry about, the Server app did the tough stuff for me....

I’m not sure how Apple manages Apache, the underlying web engine. Frankly, this is the reason I avoid macOS on a server unless required, as it is much easier to configure a Linux box for web services.

Sorry I am not of help. I could fix this in Apache easily but I’m not sure how Apple does it.

I see :)
...and many do not see the reason of using the server app, but now that is what I have and I am sure I can uninstall and set up my own programs/services but I do not have the time to do that now :(
