Well…one look at the “Safari cannot connect to localhost because your computer is connected to the internet” message I received yesterday while trying to view my web site while on the train and I about lost it. After I hacked the apache conf, that was enough for me to put up the white flag when dealing with Mac OS X Server. Apple needs to hire me or some other apache/mac based person to tweak the apache conf in Mac OS X Server. I am so frustrated at this point I am going to throw Mac OS X client on my Xserve so I can get away from Apple’s “weird trying to be helpful GUI”. I have written to the engineers, had them duplicate the problem, and then not fix it.
I do want to use Mac OS X Server, but not in the state it is now. So close Apple…so close, just hire me and I will help you obtain “Industrial Strength” status with web serving.
