I just installed Apache via MacPorts. It seems that my Mac was absolutely confused about which version of the Apache executables to run.
After moving the Apache executables that ship with the Mac to a directory that is not listed in the
PATH variable, trying to run the
httpd built by MacPorts fails even though the correct directory (
/opt/local/apache2/bin) is listed in the
If I navigate to the directory
/opt/local/apache2/bin and type the command
httpd I still get the error message
-bash: httpd: command not found
If I type the command with the full path
/opt/local/apache2/bin/httpd it works fine.
I've run the command
alias to see if something was clashing but the only thing listed is:
alias wget='curl -O'
How do I find what is intercepting the command and preventing the executable being found in the directory, even when I'm inside the same directory?
By the way, the
httpd file is executable:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 442496 9 May 2012 httpd
