mac os x
After switching over to Lion, I had to re-enable personal sites to continue working on a side project. Fortunately, it’s just as easy in Lion as it was in Snow Leopard. I’ll walk through the setup process in this article. Note that you’ll need administrator access for a few steps in the process, so you’ll need the admin password.
In Snow Leopard, the quickest and easiest way to get sites set up was to use the “Web Sharing” feature of the OS, and it looks like Lion works the same way.
Today I migrated to a new work laptop. Always exciting, especially when you’re also upgrading to a new OS version. In this case, I moved from Snow Leopard to Lion.
Yes, I actually was excited.
In addition to being excited, I was also prepared for a royally painful migration, since every migration I’ve ever done was royally painful. However, I’m happy to report that in this case, it was (almost) dead simple. As simple as it should always have been.
