How to set HTTP Request Headers on Mac

Hey all.

I am trying to run our website from my local machine and am having cross origin issues. Here is the error.

XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://internaldomain/<pathtofile> No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://mymachine.mycompany.com' is therefore not allowed access.

How do I set the access-control-allow-origin? I've googled it and have seen examples of PHP code, but I was thinking there would be a way to modify the configuration for the Apache running on my Mac.

Is it a matter of modifying the Apache configuration and if so, how is that done on a Mac?

From a security perspective, Setting the access control for all is not necessarily what you have in mind.
Access-Control-Allow-Origin   *

Therefore, I always recommend to limit the cross domain access to the relevant origin domains, and use a wildcard only when you actually need a wildcard.
Access-Control-Allow-Origin  http://mymachine.mycompany.com
