I compiled and installed apache 2.2.x on my Mac 10.4 Tiger; however, when I start apache in the bin folder I receive this error:
httpd: Could not open configuration file /usr/local/apache2--enable-module=so--enable-module=rewrite--enable-mods-shared=all--enable-proxy-shared--enable-proxy_http=shared--enable-ssl=shared--enable-module=most--enable-shared=max--enable-layout=Apache/conf/httpd.conf: No such file or directory

I even tried installing the new Zend Server (beta1) CE and I receive the same error. Any idea?

Thank you,

I've tried several times over the years to install Apache on OSX and it was always a pain in the neck.

I now use XAMPP or my preference is for MAMP http://www.mamp.info/en/index.html

If you want to track down the httpd.conf file ... open Terminal and enter this ..
sudo find / -name "httpd.conf" -print

Hi eoinosullivan,

Okay, I'll give it a try later. But I would really like to figure this out. I'd like to learn how to do it. If you know how to do it and you've figured it out please let me know. Thank you.
