    I'm trying to install wordpress locally on a mac with the built in stuff (apache/php) without installing MAMP. basically I'm following this tutorial:


    after editing the httpd.conf file, and restarting apache, I get this error in the browser:


    You don't have permission to access / on this server."

    Any ideas?

    well it seams I found what caused the problem. the Sites folder, where I put the wordpress folder had permissions 750, after changing it to 751, now it works. is this a proper solution or I should keep digging?

    I'm not sure if this is a proper solution considering security issues, but at least it is working.
