Hello, I am somewhat of a mac noob but am learning. I am running OSX 10.5.8 on a G5 I am trying to get PHP to run through the standard mac/apache web server. I can bring up the default index.html page from http://localhost/~myusername/ but when I try to run a .php file from this location I get: Safari cant open the page http://localhost/~myusername because Safari cant connect to the server localhost. I have followed some instructions online (http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/Apache/Using-Apache-and-PHP-on-Mac-OS-X/) and have so far managed the following: In this location: /private/etc/Apache2/users I have two files httpd.conf and myusername.conf the latter of which contains the following: <Directory "/Users/myusername/Sites/"> Options Indexes MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> I edited the file: httpd.conf Un-commented these lines LoadModule php4_module libexec/httpd/libphp4.so AddModule mod_php4.c These lines were already un-commented AddType application/x-httpd-php .php AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps As per instructions online (http://foundationphp.com/tutorials/php_leopard.php), in this location: /private/etc I copied 'php.ini.default' to 'php.ini' then I edited the php.ini file and changed: error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE to this: error_reporting = E_ALL I think I've recalled everything I have done here. Obviously I have restarted the Web Service however, on all the examples I have seen this service is called 'Personal Web Sharing' and in my service list I only have 'Web Sharing'. Don't know if that makes any difference. I'd really like to get this working as I am trying to develop a couple of sites and am fed up of ftp'ing every change to the server just to test it. If anyone can help me sort this I would appreciate it very much. Kindest Regards, Matt.
