Disable Apache's Rendezvous module In 10.2.4 Internet
Apache's rendezvous module is pretty spiffy, but should you want to disable it, do the following from the terminal:
 % sudo pico /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
Comment the following lines:
 #LoadModule rendezvous_apple_module libexec/httpd/mod_rendezvous_apple.so
 ...
 #AddModule mod_rendezvous_apple.c
 ...
 #<IfModule mod_rendezvous_apple.c>
 #RegisterUserSite all-users
 #RegisterDefaultSite
 #</IfModule>
Save, then type sudo apachectl restart. Rendezvous is now disabled. Uncomment and restart the server to enable it again.

Disable Apache's Rendezvous module In 10.2.4

Just the AddModule and LoadModule lines will do. The IfModule line handles the rest. Just like EVERY other Apache module...

By the way, to the previous commenter, by reverting to .applesaved, you also exclude one other line. (the .ico line). Better to follow the orginal poster's instructions with my modification.

Why
sudo apachectl
instead of
sudo apachectl graceful
?

Graceful is generally better than restart, except that if you're running your webserver on a local box with no activity, it doesn't matter one way or the other.

Of course, in that case, you'll probably find mod_rendezvous to be a big disappointment as well...

Just disable LoadModule and AddModule

No need to comment out the IfModule section; once the first two are disabled, that section won't execute.
