I was trying to allow for my server to use the RewriteEngine in an .htaccess file so I went into /private/etc/apache2 and tried to edit the http.conf file, but did not have permission.
So I duplicated it, made my edits then saved to Desktop.
I then moved to the httpd.conf file into the same directory as the old. It did not ask me to replace.
I then deleted the old file, and now my computer will no longer connect to localhost server.
What should I do to remedy this?
Thank you for any help that you can give me. I'm not familiar in this area at all.
I notice that their is a httpd.conf.bak file in the same directory which appears to be a backup with system and wheel group privileges. I'm not sure how I restor httpd.conf with this while retaining system and wheel group privileges.
UPDATE: I noticed that I mispelled httpd.conf as http.conf. Sorry for this post.
