Data Mac OS X & Web Dev

Could someone recommend a good book? Regarding Unix and Mac os X? I know the OS is new, but Unix ain't.

I would like to know more about setting up the webserver on my machine. All the HTML works fine, it's just when i try to execute a cgi, php or a pl script.. Smilie I have tried and tried to activate a copy of my site, on a local machine for debugin' and it always fail. Smilie

Erm. It's not the same forum as used on the live site.. I wanna run some experiments.

I left the perl location as default... is this right? If not, could soneone please post the correct place.

#!/usr/bin/perl


By trade I'm a graphic designer but due to changing times i find myself working more and more on websites.

Also... How do i know if apache is running?

Bearing in mind that i want to do this all on the same machine..

Thanks in advance. Smilie

You didn't specified what exatly happening when u trying to execute cgi. is it giving "internal server error" or is it displays cgi code as it is in browser. If its internal server error its problem with your script. May be wrong path to perl or forgot to print html header before rediricting any output to browser or any other kind of script error. First make sure script is working by executing at commandline. If you see CGI file content as it is in your browser you have to do some work in your httpd.conf file.

type 'whereis perl' at commandline. It will return path where perl resides in your system


Also... How do i know if apache is running?

Simple way is to try access webserver using browser.
or ps -aux | grep httpd
