10.4: Upgrade install overwrites /etc/hosts file
Authored by: rwikoff on May 28, '05 03:57:07AM

I think it is also important to note that Tiger probably overwrites the httpd.conf file because Rendezvous has been renamed to bonjour.

If you had webDAV enabled before the old file will not work unless you change every instance of rendenzvous_apple to bonjour (the new name for zero conf. At least the uncommented ones.

For example the line reading:

LoadModule rendezvous_apple_module libexec/httpd/

needs to read

LoadModule bonjour_module libexec/httpd/

I have CGI's with SSI's and the bitxhack, vitual hosting, proxy serving, bonjour demarcated websites, and webDAV enabled on my system and after that one change (in each place) it all worked. The httpd.conf file is located at /etc/httpd/.
