Trying to view some local html/css/js files in a mobile browser on my iOS device. Thought maybe file-sharing would be an option, and is, but I'm not completely satisfied with it. Any time I try to do the following an error occurs. Web sharing is on and available at
http://192.168.1.101/~user but I have to manually copy the files in.
If I try to symlink a folder in so that the address could be viewed at ''
~user/some_dir by issuing
$ ln -s /Users/user/dev/some_dir ~/Sites/
then I get a 403 forbidden error. I've tried to remedy this by modifying a
user.conf file in
/private/etc/apache2/ and using the following syntax:
<Directory "/Users/user/Sites/"> Options Indexes MultiViews SymLinks AllowOverride None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
but nope, still doesn't work. I get a 403 error. If I try to symlink each individual file in instead of using a directory as a sub-directory, same error.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'd just like to symlink directories into the ~/Sites one and browse them on my iOS device over wifi. I'm on OS X 10.7 Lion trying to connect with iOS 5.
