The same XAMPP config works on Windows, but not on Mac OS X

The same XAMPP config works on Windows, but not on Mac OS X

I've been using Xampp on Windows for some time now. I'm trying to set it up on Mac OS X also, so I copied all the configuration, but I can't get virtual hosts to work.

"This works on OSX

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin apache-consulting@confusionconsultants.com
DocumentRoot ""/dans-data""
ServerName dans-data.localhost
ErrorLog ""logs/dans-data-on-localhost.log""
CustomLog ""logs/dummy-host2.example.com-access_log"" common
</VirtualHost>

so try something similar. Good luck.

Edit: Note that there are several differences, but most notably, the port number. Some of these lines are definitely optional, like the Error and CustomLog lines."

"I beleive you'd have to install either the linux or Mac OSX version of xampp if they have one.

http://www.apachefriendsdotorg/en/xampp-macosx.html seems to be the one.

I don't think the software works platform independently due to the way file structures are set within each operating system. For example, it is hard to define the linux equivalent of C:/xampp/htdocs and /opt/lampp/htdocs (not sure what it is for Mac)."
