 Set up OS X's default Webserver

  Set up an Xserve from scratch part III

The next step is to create a webserver. Since I want /library/webserver/documents/ or any local user's site served, a default server is enough.

1.  Start. If you do not see a list of services, expand your server by clicking the small arrow left of your server.

2.  Click the 'Web' service once; click the 'Settings' tab at the bottom of the right pane and then click the 'Sites' tab at the top of the right pane.

3.  Click the at the bottom to add a new site. You will get the follwing pane:

4.  I added index.htm (for Windows-built sites) and index.lasso (for Lasso applications I'm going to have) to the list. You can change the Administrator e-mail if you have to. Save the changes.

5.  Click the 'Editing' button at the top of te pane to return to the site list. A default site should appear in the list.

6.  Next, I started the Web service by clicking the button in the toolbar.

7.  Start and browse to http://(ip-of-your-xserve)/ to check if the site is up.

8.  Since I am going to generate pages with Lasso and have very little static content, the advise from Apple is to switch off 'Performance Caching' and switching on 'Allow persistant connections'. To do switch 'Performance Caching' off, double click the default site in the sites list and click the 'Options' tab at the top of the pane:

Uncheck 'Perfomance Cache' if it is enabled - it is by default. Save your changes.

9.  To switch 'Allow persistant connections' on, click the 'Editing' button at the top of te pane to return to the site list and click the 'General' tab at the top of the pane:

Check 'Allow Persistant Connections' and save the change.

The webserver is configured and we can go on by installing Lasso 8 Professional.
