For testing xenForo on my mac to check various add-ons before installing on live website!
For the newbies...I prefer to set everything up more or less manually rather than using a pre-made stack:
For newbies, that Stack is the best for MacOSFor the newbies...
Apache needs to be updated to Apache 2.4.25 in Sierra... I used these instructions: https://getgrav.org/blog/macos-sierra-apache-multiple-php-versionsDoesn't Sierra come preinstalled with Apache2 and PHP 5.6?
start apache2 if it isn't yet:
Now, there is an additional /apache2/ in this set of instructions aboveAnd make sure these modules are uncommented (the first 2 should already be on a clean install):
LoadModule authz_core_module libexec/apache2/mod_authz_core.so
LoadModule authz_host_module libexec/apache2/mod_authz_host.so
LoadModule userdir_module libexec/apache2/mod_userdir.so
LoadModule include_module libexec/apache2/mod_include.so
LoadModule rewrite_module libexec/apache2/mod_rewrite.so
Now, here there is no /apache2/ above?Also we should now enable mod_rewrite which is commented out by default. Search for mod_rewrite.so and uncomment the line by removing the leading #:
LoadModule rewrite_module libexec/mod_rewrite.so
