Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 1
Subject:   Apache doesn't start anymore

Since i wasn't able to save changes to the httpd.conf file, i made a stupid thing: after having edited it, i saved it on the desktop and then i changed the file properties (permissions, owner and so on), copying them from those ones belonging to the original file. Then i replaced my new httpd.conf file with the original one, placed in httpd folder. Now, if i try to turn on 'web sharing', from the sys prefs, nothing happens (it says it is starting but it never starts). I see that in the httpd folder there is a httpd.config.bak file, can i enable it to somehow make it work?it is a copy of the httpd.conf original file, isn't it? There's also a httpd.conf.default file, over there... maybe it can be used too? you told to use sudo to edit httpd.conf or bbedit shell, but isn't there any other way to edit (and save!!) it? Thanks in advance, i hope you'll help me.

PS: i'm running Panther 10.3.4 on a 1.25GHz PowerPCG4
