When i try to open localhost it gives me 403 error message like this "You don't have permission to access / on this server." I have tried changing the permission but nothing happens. It worked fine with High Sierra but after update its not working.I am using the pre installed apache and not using third party apps like xampp
I had the same problem - it's based on mod_userdir exclusion after updating to Mac OS X Mojave. There are a few steps to repair that:
- Load the module
- At the end of the
httpd.confmake sure to load
- In httpd-userdir.conf include a local file in
Put a directory section into that file, containing the rules for the directory where your webserver files are located:
<Directory "/Users/<myusername>/Sites/"> AllowOverride All Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Require all granted </Directory>
This should set you up.
The Mojave update (or re-install) overwrites the apache directory but left my old configs with the
~previous suffix left.
I did edit a lot of previous files in my apache path
/private/etc/apache2. These files were renamed to like
httpd.conf~previous and a new
httpd.conf has taken place.
I just renamed files, restart my apache and everything is working like before now. It wasn't every previous file, as i knew i did not edited all of them.
In my case also the
/private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf~previous had to get back in place
I had the same problem after I updated to Big Sur.
In my case the configuration files from the apache2 folder were supposedly 'incompatible with the recent macOS upgrade'.
Because of that Apple moved my
I just had to copy them over to the old location and everything worked again.
Apache The new macOS Mojave comes with Apache pre-installed. All we have to do is switch it on.
Open Terminal using macOS Spotlight or go to /Applications/Utilities and open Terminal.
To check the version of Apache installed run the following command in the Terminal.
