I cannot find this directory, nor the files that are supposed to be in this directory, it is missing under apache2. I need to be able to edit/create httpd-vhosts.conf

It is not hidden. I am at my wits end here. Do I need to install or copy this from another server? Both Mac Mini servers I have access to are missing this directory.

Thank you in advance

    I am experiencing on brand new Mac Mini OS X Server (10.6.7),  I reinstalled Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server from include DVDs and went through the Software Update process.

     

    I have Apache2 up and running, but there is no /private/etc/apache2/extra folder.

     

    I need to configure Apache2 for SSL and following all web instructions are halted with this. 

     

    I am using

     

    apachectl -version

    Server version: Apache/2.2.17 (Unix)

    Server built:   Dec  1 2010 09:58:15

     

    Here are my directory contents:

     

    eis:apache2 admin$ ls -l

    This directory doesn't exist in OS X Server 10.6.x

    It does exist on OS X (non-server), perhaps you are reading instructions for non-server version of OS X.

     

    Hope that helps.

    Yeah.  I have an installation for 10.6.2 (non-server) and the "extra" directory is there.... you are right, just not on the 10.6 Server "edition".

     

    I was just about to re-install from DVD again.  Thanks for saving me. 

     

    From other posts I see now.. I read I should be using ´╗┐Server Admin to setup SSL for web services.  Hopefully I will figure it out and able to update all my documentation to reflect the procedures.
