    Hello,

    I have been running an Apache 1.3.x server on a Mac with OS 10.2.x/10.3.x for a few years. I now have a newer Mac, running 10.5 (with Apache 2.2.6), that I want to be the server now.

    I tried to set up httpd on the 10.5 machine, but thus far have got it to load the items in /Library/Webserver only for the main site, not for any of the virtual servers. Attempting to get to them in a browser, from my LAN or outside, gives a 403 error.

    I'm using the same language for the virtual hosts setup I used in the httpd.conf file in 10.3.9; I've checked httpd -t and httpd -S; I'm using the httpd-vhosts.conf that I didn't use with 1.3; I've searched this forum and the Apple forums for tips, but maybe I've missed something.

    The Mac with 10.5 came with 10.4 originally, but Web Sharing was never enabled until after the upgrade to 10.5. Still, maybe this is a migration thing?

    I've checked permissions, in the Terminal and Finder too just in case: reading should be allowed on all of the files that are part of the virtual host sites.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Experienced the same exact problem in 10.6 ... searched for an answer, found my own post.

    Same old solution worked.

    I didn't learn my own lesson!
