How does that help Simon? "Maybe?" Or I "have never met anyone who has either?" What does that mean? I read it as snobbiish. Am I wrong? Am I being defensive? Wordpress has run on these machines for years. This particular trick of DMS does not work. And the way we are treated when we inquire is with some measure of elitism? What is the best machine out there Simon? Perhaps that should be in the specs when you sell DMS. It requires a specific OS. What do you recommend? What allows DMS to work as written. How are your test machines configured. OSX is UNIX. Are there unsurmountable differences?
Well yes maybe your file permissions are wrong for that folder for the user _www. Maybe as they maybe or maybe not. I have no way to tell from here, and also have no knowledge of how OSX is setup as a server. Its very niche.
We have tested DMS and PageLines Framework on OSX using MAMP, on Windows, Linux servers, a LOT of VPS's and the top 20 hosts (as of last year).
Is it an actual server or a imac running the server software?
