Well I had a look around to this problem and it seems it is specific to mac os system on intel machines, so I send my post here.
I had installed the apache 2 server from www.serverlogistics.com
and it seems to start. However it is impossible to log into my local website with an error in my web browser "can't log to "localhost" server".
By reading the logs I got in [color=brown]/Library/Apache2/l
ogs/error_log [/color] (where there is also a httpd.pid file): crit (14)Bad address: mod_rewrite: Could not set permissions on rewrite_log_lock; check User and Group directives Configuration Failed
So, I commented the line "LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
" in [color=brown]/Library/Apache2/co
nf/httpd.conf [/color] with no efffect at all.
Then I don't know what to do.... any idea please ?
NB : I did not configure or set any htaccess file in any directory.
