Since yesterday, my /etc/hosts file disappears "magically" on restart. When I recreate it via sudo vim hosts everything works, but it's gone once I restart. I'm on Mac OSX 10.6.8, running MAMP 1.9.4 (recently added new virtual hosts, worked without problems before). After every restart /etc/hosts and /private/etc/hosts show only these:
hostconfig hostconfig~orig hosts.ac hosts~orig
The ~orig files are my own backups, I'm aware of the hosts.ac issue and have thus created hosts.ac as a link file (ln - alias of hosts). However now it's just empty, because hosts is not there. Any ideas?
