Assuming this is possible, what is the recommended method of running multiple webapps alongside the web based apps (wiki, etc) that come with osx server.app ?


Server.app provides a Websites service which can be used to publish your own web content. This service provides support for web apps (alongside normal websites) through the use of webapp.plist(8) and webappctl.

You can define the web apps managed by webappctl by creating plist files and placing them in /Library/Server/Web/Config/apache2/webapps/. For information about these plist files, enter man webapp.plist in Terminal.


  • This looks promising. It's a bit painful though, on my server machine (running Server.app 5.2 and MacOS 10.12.1), following the documentation's suggestion I get: % man webapp.plist -> No manual entry for webapp.plist – Ivar Nov 1 '16 at 19:41
  • Try opening a new terminal window. Sometimes the manpath gets messed up, if the window was open before Server was installed. Does man webappctl return anything? – Leland Wallace Nov 6 '16 at 8:02
