Web Server For Mac Os X

OS X has a built in web server. For some users, especially web developers, it may come in rather handy. You can use it for locally hosting web sites (typically for development purposes), for running a local WebDAV server (which may, for instance, come in handy for local syncing of apps like OmniFocus).

When OS X 10.8 was released, Apple had removed the convenient “Web sharing” switch in the Sharing options of System Preferences. Here’s a couple of ways to start and stop you local Apache server:

Using Mac OS X as a web server is easier than you might think. The reason for this is that Mac OS X is shipped with the powerful and widely used Apache web server software built right in. To begin, open Applications System Preferences (look for it in the Dock) and go to the Sharing pane. Just like that, your Mac is a powerful server. The new OS X Server brings even more power to your business, home office or school. It’s remarkably easy to install, set up and manage.

1. With a GUI

There is a free Preference Panel available at Click On Tyler. One installed (takes a quick double-click) you will have a new panel in your System Preferences which provides some very basic info about your Local Apache sites, and an easy way to turn the Apache server ON and OFF.

There is another Preference Pane here at Stowlake.com, although it says it works on 10.8 but nothing about 10.9 and above. It worth trying out though, if you want to give the GUI option a go.

2. Using Terminal commands

Personally, I recommend this method if you are getting into working with your system beyond the superficial (yet convenient) bling of the OS X GUI interface. Also, if you’re into developing web sites, becoming familiar with Apache commends on OS X is bound to come in handy over time.

You can drop the -w from the second and forth command if you don’t want it to persist through a system restart.
