For the longest time I was a MAMP user, until yesterday, something went terribly wrong and MAMP would no longer start mysql. Long story short I decided to ditch MAMP and just setup my own AMP server, so I found a good tutorial and set one up. All was working well until I
went to create a virtual host. One step of the directions had me editing the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file. I somehow managed to delete much of that file and saved it - UGGG! Since then I have been unable to resolve
I was able to locate the contents of the httpd.conf file on another mac and replaced the contents and saved, then restarted apache, and still I am unable to resolve
http://localhost. I get the error: Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to localhost.
In Terminal I am able to ping localhost and I get the result 64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.044 ms
I am completely at a loss here, as far as I can tell I have reset everything back to the way it should be. Here is what I am checking:
I have restarted apache, and my computer a number of times to no avail.
And both files, as far as I can tell are set as they would be from a fresh install.
Can anyone offer some advice here? Is there a way that I can further trouble shoot this issue? A log that I can look at? I really need to get this local environment back up and running and would prefer to not need to reinstall my entire OS. Any direction is greatly appreciated!
