I can use some help here.  Clean install of 10.7 Loin + Server app.  Everything went fine.  The server (Mac Mini) is configured as an OD Master with these services running - Address book, iCal, File Sharing, Mail, VPN, Web and Profile Manager.   DNS checks out fine using the changeip commeand -


The names match.  There is nothing to change.

dirserv:success = "success"


When I'm in Profile Manager and I click on "Visit user portal" I get Safari can't connect... I've downloaded and setup Apple's Push SSL's and configured a self signed SSL.  Everything looks like its in their correct place. I confirmed the Mini is online by surfing the www.  When I go into the web server module and click "View Server Web Site" I get the same message.


All other services seem to be working fine except for Web and Profile Manager.  I'm attaching three screen shots - 1) Safari 2) Console All Messages 3) Web Server Error Log.  Any ideas on what's going on? Any help would be appreciated.

    I have the same issue. I bought brand new mac mini with lion and then added server. Profile manager and web sites (wiki etc) worked fine until I changed the host name. Now when I go into profile manager it states that profile manager needs to be started even though it shows started. When I go to web server or wiki it says the site can't be found.

    Bump... Anyone - Bueller, Bueller.


    The common thread here is we both changed our host name and it broke the web and profile manager.  I wonder if there is a way to reset the Profile Manager and WWW modules back to their default settings and start over?

    I used this.


    Try this in Terminal.app:


    cd /etc/apache2/sites

    sudo -s # become admin--you will have to enter your password here

    rm 0000_any_443_.conf

    cp 0000_any_80_.conf.default 0000_any_80_.conf

    cp virtual_host_global.conf.default virtual_host_global.conf

    exit # go back to being a normal user


    Then go back to Server.app and restart your services.

    In the Terminal

    1. cd /etc/apache2/sites

    2. sudo cp 0000_any_443_.conf 0000_any_443_.conf.bak

    3. rm 0000_any_443_.conf

    4. Go to server app restart WWW and Profile Manger.

    5. The server app will rebuild the 0000_ conf file.


    Profile Manager and WWW now load correctly.

    I tried this one...


    Terminal says: cp 0000_any_443_.conf 0000_any_443_.conf No such file or directory.


    Does anybody know why? What is missing in my installation?.

    Solved! At least for me...


    I have described all solutions to the major problems I've been having from a crippled 10.7.3 install to a flourishing one here:https://discussions.apple.com/message/17740033#17740033


    Hope this helps!

    when I type the command "rm 0000_any_443_.conf" it asks me "override rw-r--r--  root/wheel for 0000_any_443_.conf?" and when I type "yes" it gives me "rm: 0000_any_443_.conf: Permission denied" .

    What am I doing wrong?

  • Mark23 Level 3 (975 points)

    You need to execute the command as root - since the file is owned by root by entering "sudo " in front of whatever command you are planning to issue, in this case you would enter:


    sudo rm 0000_any_443_.conf
