I had the hardest time setting up Mura today on my 2008 MacBook Pro. It wasn’t even the fault of Mura, Apache, or Tomcat/Railo but of my hosts file.
This post got me over the hump: Mac OS X Lion /etc/hosts file.
What a weird change. I also hit a wall with some Apache config file changes but I’ll fool w/ those later.
Due to the linked site not working any longer, I am copying the post here. The original post is from Gargoyle’s Blog.
Just doing some early testing with Lion to make sure I can get all my dev environment up and running and have just came along a little quirk.
This is how the default hosts file looks:-
## # Host Database # # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry. ## 127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost fe80::1%lo0 localhost
Nothin unusual. However, if you are used to adding lines like:-
to the end of the file, then it might throw you off a little bit as it seems you now have to have them above the fe80::1%lo0 line.
