Interesting article explaining that malware such as viruses, adware, spam bots, etc are a major problem on Windows and not on Apple Macs. The reason is the poor quality of Windows.
After many failed attempts, I have found out how to get web sharing with apache to work on my mac with leopard os x 10.5.2
Update 2: I’ve been using web sharing on my MBP and encountered an annoyance. In Sharing under System Prefrences, it shows http://192.168.1.3/~dagny/ as the URL of my home page. This is fine until my rounter assigns my mac a new IP address, a normal occurance. If I bookmarked the URL I will get an http error. The fix is to change the IP address (192.168.1.3 in this case) to localhost. So the URL becomes http://localhost/~dagny/ localhost is the IP shorthand for “this machine” and is the loopback ip address (127.0.0.1) NOTE: This is only good when I access the page from my computer – which I do a lot when working on web sites locally.
Update: This post gets read a lot. To summarize the linked article, there was a problem in the installer, it did not copy a file that Apache needs. The details are in the article. I found that I had to change to the root user (in terminal, su root) to copy the files.
About a month ago we bought a 24 inch Apple imac. This thing is huge. We decided that we have had enough MS windows, thank you. There are lots of applications we use that are not on Linux. And the only downside of Apple is the cost upfront is higher. We bought 4GB of ram from a third party supplier and installed it ourselves, cost $171 delivered and about 15 minutes of labor. Apple wanted big bucks for added memory. We also bought the Parallels program that enables Windows (in our case XP) to run within a window on the mac. Of course this requires a copy of windows, which we had.
Here’s Gary with the new iMac.
