    Maximum user account limit?
    system profile info:
    Mac OS X 10.5.8 ... Macbook ... 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo ... 160 gig hd ...
    MacBook5,2 ... 2 gig ram

    Is there a limit on the number of user accounts you can have? use with Apache server?

    < or does it just depend on the leftover hd space? ... if so how much space does each on take up? >

    Is this OS X Server? or Just OS X?

    If it's 10.5 server, there are 2 licenses, 10 and unlimited. If it's 10.6 server, there is 1 license, unlimited.

    In OS X, as far as I know, there is no limit on User Accounts.

    I also don't fully understand your question.

    The Apache Server is the built-in web server software (included with OS X since Jaguar 10.2 I believe?) that allows you to activate and use Web Sharing. I don't think there is any limit on the number of user accounts allowed. It has nothing to do with the number of OS X licences authorized or the number of user accounts that can be created on each machine.

    However if I may go out on a limb, based on your question I'm not sure you really understand what OS X Web Sharing is all about. There's a good explanation of what it is and how it works under OS X Help, or just Google it. :apple:
