In recent years Apple has removed more and more functionality from Apache Webserver on Mac OS X in order to promote Mac OS X server. But, I ran it fine for years on Mac OS X and thanks to clickontyler.com he offered a wonderful Web Sharing applet that allows turning on/off Web Sharing and PHP just like under old versions of Mac OS X. With the advent of Yosemite we had a further issue that's a problem: People trying to pull up my webserver would receive a 403 forbidden error. Clickontyler figured out a fix for this (mostly): http://clickontyler.com/support/a/48/403-forbidden-error-yosemite/ I've implemented the fix but unfortunately the Require all granted flag allows for my webserver to run like it used to except for one thing. It used to be that I could access a directory via web browser such as: http://www.website.org/files/ Where website would be my external address and files would be the subdirectory I want to access from offsite. This used to give you a list of files I could download from remote and was very helpful. When I try to do this now, I get a 403 forbidden error even with the Require all granted flag set in http.conf. Anyone figure out a way around this?
