10.4: Upgrade install overwrites /etc/hosts file
Authored by: ihelp-mac on Jul 23, '05 06:55:34PM

What I would like to know--being a total newbie regarding Apache configuration--is HOW to restore a garbled httpd.conf file in my "/private/etc/httpd" directory...??

Ever since upgrading to 10.4.0 (and still in 10.4.2) my Apache webserver is acting VERY strange. I use to do a domain-name redirect to link my domain-name to my temp IP address of my Mac.... Whatever happened during the 10.4 update wiped out the linkages to and I can't get it working again...

Any advice (or a "vanilla" httpd.conf file??) would be helpful!

My Apache seems to be working OK in 10.4.2. 'Am also using But 'am using DNSUpdate to notify All is well. Though 'am unable to edit the Tiger hosts file (to be able to access the apache site from behind the router using the web url.) Instead it has to be accessed by using the local address.
