My first Leopard upgrade hiccup

If you've upgraded to Leopard and suddenly none of your web sites work, it's because Leopard uses a newer version of Apache and the upgrade process doesn't copy your configuration files over. For an Apache newbie like me, the only thing I needed to do was to copy the contents of my /etc/httpd/users directory into /etc/apache2/users.

This is on your desktop? What are you using apache for?

Will said...

Yeah. It's there so I figured I should play around with it : ) I was using it to share some files over our home network.

Oh, and it's useful (not sure if that's the right word) for streaming videos using MobileSafari.

When will Leopard finally stabilise?

Will said...

You can never be too stable.

It's hard to do automatic configuration upgrading so it's probably better that Apple left it to the user. The hiccup was more an issue with the upgrade process rather than with Leopard.
