After upgrading to OS X Mountain Lion, the option of Web Sharing in "System Performances -> Sharing" is gone.


Wonder if there is anyway to turn it on again (even via command line)?


Well, I really can't tell the OS getting even better, at least for developers.


Thanks in advance!

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion

I haven't downloaded and installed ML yet, but this functionality is definitely something I will need to retain.  Try typing this command into Terminal:


     sudo apachectl -k start


Let me know if this works.  By the way if you subsequently want to stop the service enter this command instead:


     sudo apachectl -k stop

Here's a good page on how to deal with Apache (the web server) in Mountain Lion:
