Serving Lasso 9 with MacPorts' Apache

Some Mac users prefer to use Apache as made available through the MacPorts package management system, in order to get a newer version of Apache than what Apple makes available or to have greater control over their server's configuration. In such cases, Lasso 9.1 or 9.2 can be made to work as follows: 

  1. The Lasso 9 installer starts the stock Apache that ships with Mac OS X, so you'll need to turn it off via System Preferences > Sharing > uncheck Web Sharing.
  2. Copy the Lasso 9 Apache configuration file from its default location to your other Apache installation.
    sudo cp /etc/apache2/other/mod_lasso9.conf /opt/local/apache2/conf/
  3. Append this line to the end of "/opt/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf".
    Include conf/mod_lasso9.conf
  4. Create a folder for the Lasso9 module (this way you don't have to make any changes to the stock mod_lasso9.conf).
    sudo mkdir -p /opt/local/apache2/libexec/apache2
  5. Download and unzip one of the files below appropriate for your Lasso installation and move it into the new folder.
    sudo mv /opt/local/apache2/libexec/apache2/
  6. Test the configuration.
    /opt/local/apache2/bin/httpd -t
  7. Finally, start the server.
    sudo /opt/local/apache2/bin/httpd -k start
