Chapter 15. The Personal Web Server > Setting Up Personal Web Sharing

Setting Up Personal Web Sharing

This section explains how to activate Personal Web Sharing on your OS X system, and also discusses related services such as DNS that people use to locate your OS X system and view your shared Web pages.

Activating Personal Web Sharing

Web sharing enables users to view HTML files located in your home directory’s Sites folder from any system equipped with a Web browser. The Apache Web server included with Mac OS X is the world’s most popular Web server. On most computer systems, starting and using Apache to share files over the Web requires a certain amount of configuration and a bit of administrative knob twisting. On Mac OS X, sharing files over the Web is as easy as clicking a button.
