updated guide for starting server on mac (el capitan)?

Post by cwkalish » Thu Aug 18, 2016 5:48 pm

Hi,
Are there any updated instructions for starting livecode server on mac 10.11?

I'm running MAMP to try out livecode server. I found the sticky up top and this thread and tried to adjust for mac v windows, but not having much luck

Thanks.

I can't start the MAMP server after editing the cons file.
I've got LiveCodeCommunityServer-8_1_0_dp_3-Mac as a folder within cgi-bin
See below for how I edited the .conf file

Thanks.


The http.conf file now reads:
<Directory “/Applications/MAMP/htdocs">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
AddHandler livecode-script .lc
Action livecode-script /livecode-cgi/livecode-community-server
</Directory>

<Directory “/Applications/MAMP/cgi-bin">
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

ScriptAlias /livecode-cgi/livecode-community-server “/Applications/MAMP/cgi-bin/LiveCodeCommunityServer-8_1_0_dp_3-Mac/livecode-community-server"

The text of the error is:
Apache couldn't be started. Please check your MAMP installation and configuration

I assume I broke something in the configuration file.
