AMPPS + OSX Mavericks
October 22, 2013
I jumped in with both feet today and upgraded both of my work machines. Surprisingly enough, the only thing that’s broken so far (aside from hiding spotlight again and re-enabling TRIM) is AMPPS – specifically Apache.
I’ll post an update when I get somewhere more intelligent, but for now I’ve found that I can force start the bundled Apache under sudo via command line:
sudo /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/httpd -k start
You can of course stop Apache this way as well…
sudo /Applications/AMPPS/apache/bin/httpd -k stop
This was mentioned on the AMPPS Wiki and works just fine.
But why does this happen?
The system log leads me to believe that the problem lies squarely with a missing
/etc/authorization, a normal and expected change that’s part of Mavericks’ revamped security.
