Out of the box, personal websites weren’t working. Mainly because Leopard ships with Apache2 compared to Tiger’s 1.3.
The following helped solve the problem for me.
- Enable php5 by updating /etc/apache2/httpd.conf and uncomment the line
- Turn on personal web sharing via System Preferences.
- Users configuration is done in /etc/apache2/users. Ensure that you have a
youruserid.conffile with appropriate directives. Mine contains
<Directory "/Users/youruserid/Sites/"> Options Indexes MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
- Logs are written to /var/log/apache2 rather than /var/log/httpd.
