Mac OS X Server with MAMP
I'm not using the Workspace, I'm doing the exercises locally on my computer (Macbook).
I'm running Mac OS X El Capitan with MAMP (free version).
In case anyone else needs this info:
a) Stop running MAMP.
b) Edit the httpd.conf file on on /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache and see if the LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so line is un-commented.
c) On line 378: ''' <Directory /> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None </Directory> ''' Change [None] to [All].
d) Create the .htaccess on the projects folder root using the code provided by the teacher.
e) Restart MAMP.
This answer was put together using this (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7670561/how-to-get-htaccess-to-work-on-mamp) and this (http://trevordavis.net/blog/use-htaccess-files-with-mamp).
