Hi All -
I am setting up localhost on OSX 10.8, without using AMP, MAMPP or other outside software.
The local Mac login name is Bruce.
I can see the file ownership & permissions using Terminal, they are "-rwx r-x r-x Bruce"
I understand how Permissions work, and "Sorta" understand Ownership. Well, untill now, at least I THOUGHT I did ;-)
Question #1 REGARDING LOCAL ACCESS: When opening Firefox and going to Localhost, I get errors saying "Bruce" doesn't have access to files. I also read somethign MAC-Specific about "Adding a hidden -www (or _www) User that solves this problem.
Question #2 REGARDING SERVER ACCESS: Same question ... When I have everything working and upload the files and DB to a Server, what CHOWN Ownership & CHMOD Permissions do I need ?
