I’ve just managed to get OSX 10.6.8 to work with mod_rewrite and .htaccess to be able to let WordPress rewrite it’s URLs. Here is what I did.
I installed WordPress to my homefolder so I’ll access it using http://localhost/~ola/wordpress. Apache is configured to use a split config in OSX so to change the directives for the home folder you change the file /private/etc/apache2/users/Ola.conf.… Fortsätt läsa

I wanted to remove the hidden files attributes and delete some types of files so I created the following bat-file.
attrib -R -A -S -H D:Music* /S /D
del /S /P D:Music*AlbumArtSmall.jpg D:Music*desktop.ini

The first line removes all read only, archive, system and hidden -attributes on all files, folders and subfolders in folder D:Music.… Fortsätt läsa
