How to Set Up Apache in OS X 10.11 El Capitan
John Foderaro

Hi John,

EDIT: Was having trouble before, but found a line I had failed to un-comment in httpd.conf. Seems to be working fine now. But I am curious about two things:

  1. Why do you direct the user to create backup files for every file that’s modified here except the /etc/hosts file? Is it impossible or problematic to back that up?
  2. Is there a downside to doing the config file edits in BBEdit instead of nano? I’m fine with using Terminal where it’s the best tool, but I do find BBEdit a lot easier to work in.
