I just installed Mac OS X Lion Server and it doesn't have the Web tab in the services pane. This looked like it was supposed to come standard.

How else can I access the Web part of the server?

    Can you clarify where you're looking for the Web service (i.e. in Server.app, Server Admin, or the Sharing pane of System Preferences)? What're you seeing instead of it? Note: in Lion Server, the web service should be managed from Server.app, and should be listed under "SERVICES" in the sidebar... – Gordon Davisson Apr 5 '12 at 20:18

My guess is that you are using the wrong app: in Lion Server, you no longer set up web in Server Admin, you set it up in Server app.

Either this, or you are using a display with a very low resolution and the Server app window is too small to display all its services.


You might need to refer to Lion Server: Advanced Admininstration. You will need to use the Server.app

Use the Server app to start web service.
 1. In the Server app, click Web.
  * If web service has never been turned on before, select Enable Service.
  * If web service was previously turned on, the Enable Service dialog doesn’t appear.
 2. Choose On from the pop-up menu under the service name in the Web pane.
  • Thanks, but the service isn't even available to me. I cant turn it on or off. – user773578 Feb 16 '12 at 12:51
