Mac OS X Server version 10.4 offers reliable, high-performance file services using native protocols for Mac, Windows, and Linux workgroups. The server is designed to fit seamlessly into virtually any environment including mixed enterprise networks. Mac OS X Server 1.0 was a preview of what was in store for Mac OS X. It was based on the earlier Rhapsody releases and contained a mix of technologies. The UI style was that of the Mac OS 8 Platinum style, file management took place through the NeXTStep Workspace Manager, and classic Mac OS applications could be ran in the Mac OS 8 'blue box.

Great guide, thanks John.


Just a note, in case anyone has the same issue. At first I couldn't get this to work. I tried logging out and back in (still no joy), then restarting the mac (still no joy).

Try doing both of those first. However, if, like me, you still can't get the local host site to load, try the following: You should find a file at /Library/WebServer/Documents/index.html.en . This contains the text 'It works!' referred to in the post. What I did was duplicate that file in the same folder and changed the duplicate's name to 'index.html', leaving the original in situ.

Both local and user sites then loaded. After which, I was able to delete the duplicated file and everything now works without issue. Just to be clear, leave the original file index.html.en where it is, untouched and unharmed throughout this step.

Not sure why I had to take this mysterious detour - probably something local to my machine, but if you're having trouble after following the guide above, see if it helps.

Apple created the XQuartz project as a community effort to further develop and support X11 on Mac. The XQuartz project was originally based on the version of X11 included in Mac OS X v10.5. There have since been multiple releases of XQuartz with fixes, support for new features, and additional refinements to the X11 experience. Apple is a contributor to the XQuartz project and has worked to ensure that X11 works as expected with macOS and latest available versions of XQuartz.

X11 server and client libraries for macOS are available from the XQuartz project at www.xquartz.org. Download the latest version available.
