Group name not accepted - apache configtest
Hi Members,
I'm not sure if I am allowed to put Apache, PHP queries for Mac here.
I'm using Mac 10.10, Yosemite, which provided by my organization.
I am in the process of setting up my apache and trouble shooting things.
Changed user, group, directory and what not.

Here's first of many things I'm dealing with.


id -g


apachectl configtest
AH00544: httpd: bad group name 505867215

I changed group at line ~180-ish in http.conf file using emacs, sudo rights. Restarted apache.

I don't know why it doesn't accept it.
Could someone please enlighten here?

Thanks in advance.

Although there are sometimes posts here regarding using a Mac, it is usually something to do with Linux/Mac together. You would probably get more help at an Apple/Mac forum since your questions seems specific to that operating system. What did you change the group from/to?

Hi yancek,
Thank you for your reply.
I didn't change group name from/to.
Like I mentioned, I got this laptop from my employer.

I shall look around more on mac forums, and in the meantime I have to bug IT guy who gave me laptop. :D
