Configuring DNS If You’re Using Mac OS X’s Built-In Web Server

Follow these steps:

  1. Open System Preferences from the Apple menu.
  2. Select Sharing.
  3. Under Personal Web Server, click the On check box and then click Start.
  4. Close the System Preferences window.
Your Web site documents are not stored under your home directory. Your Web site documents go into a global Web document folder. To access this directory in Finder, select Computer from the Go menu, then open the Library folder, then the WebServer folder, and then the Documents folder. In the terminal, you can also type cd /Library/WebServer/ Documents. This location may be different depending on the version of Mac OS X you are running. If the directory isn’t right for your version, load Help and search for Personal Web Sharing.
