All, My dev box is macbook pro with latest OSX, dual boot to Win7 Ult 64. I setup apache,perl,SSL, php,sql in Win with no problems and website is on the NTFS partition. on OSX side, apache runs and I have the DocumentRoot to pointed to /Volumes/Mac_Daddy/docs/web_curr/public_html NTFS-3G runs fine, I can read/write to win partition but apache is still looking for the doc in Site folder??? WTF??? also I have named the ServerName localhost so in any browser if I type in http://localhost the site on the NTFS should be pointed to and loaded but it doesn't work. and apache thinks the address is 192.xxxx/~user WTF is going on??? do i need to set a hard link in the user's site?? force 127.0.0.1 in the hosts file?? any help kindly appreciated.
