Chapter 16. Intermediate Unix Hints > Apache and Web Hints

16.7. Apache and Web Hints

One of Mac OS X's sweetest perks is its inclusion of Apache, an industrial-strength Web server that's used on thousands of popular Web sites. While you probably won't want to use your everyday Mac to serve up a site that millions of people hit every day, having a local Web server makes it a breeze to test your own site designs before they go public. It also makes it easy to serve up a small site directly from the machine for family and friends (assuming your Internet service provider allows such things).

16.7.1. The Apache Web Server Manual

The Apache manual is quite the detailed resource, with a plethora of definitions and examples of various configuration settings. You can find it online in the Documentation section of the Apache Web site, http://httpd.apache.org/docs-project/.
