You could use a virtual machine, like Virtualbox, VMware, etc. but you would need to have a license of Mac OS to test it with. Safari, however, should look the same on all operating systems it runs on (in theory), and that seems like a pretty big flaw, so I would assume that the problem is somewhere else.

Open your host file /etc/hosts with a text editor and make sure it contains: 127.0.0.1 localhost If it still doesn't work, run this command: file -b /etc/hosts and make sure the result is ASCII English text and nothing else. If it is not, use an editor such as TextWrangler or BBEdit to clean it up (use Unix end-of-line characters). Source: Apple ...

Since Rijk didn't want to answer their own question, the solution was they had to add this line into the .htaccess file. RewriteBase /~rwel/dev/quaestio Hope this helps someone else.

You'll need to mix high resolution graphics, css and things like @font-face, obviously if you create a website specifically for retina displays it will create a lot of data to download with larger images etc, but what you can do is using CSS create optimised verstions for retina and non-retina visitors. There are some great tutorials online including these: ...

It's not a bad workflow. Instead of using Coda's publish feature I would consider using Git instead. There are many advantages to this. Pushing changes to your server is just as easy. It gives you source control and branching. Coda's publish system could choke with local wordpress versus server updates resulting in overwritten files. In Git you just ...

Maybe your config has wrong IP? 127.0.0.7 test.local This one should work just fine: 127.0.0.1 test.local Additionally you may have incorrect <VirtualHost> directives formatting (unless this is happened when you inserted text here). Instead of Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes AllowOverride All should be Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ...

Not necessarily. I know on WAMP you have to edit your Apache conf file to allow other computers to access your websrever. This is for security reasons as software like WAMP and MAMP are not configured to be secure by default. Somewhere in your main Apache conf file you'll find where access is controlled. Change it to be something like this and it should ...

You can actually set your DNS records (on the domain itself) to use local area networks. For example, I have one domain on our network going to `http://10.160.1.234' which only works inside our network, but if someone in another country pings it, it will indeed resolve to that IP. This is probably easier than to distribute host files, because it doesn't ...

Alex, I think using your own DNS server is a better and easy to administer solution than to distribute hosts files across your machines. Here are my suggestions: Install Homebrew Install Dnsmasq and read the man Set up the main DNS on dev's Macs to the Mac running Dnsmasq Now Alex, you may use DNS forwarders to speed up your name resolution a bit more. ...

Why use a macmini server ? When you could probably run it in the cloud - aws, rackspace ect for around £20 a month. Although in the long run you'll save money it will take you almost 18 months to break even (if bought at the uk price of £850). Baring in mind cash flow, setup and maintenance, a simple cloud server looks much more appealing. For instance ...

You can use Wordpress on Mac OSX there are many different ways of doing that via apps like MAMP or xampp or even use the native OSX, MAMP is probably the simplest to use when creating virtual hosts for your 80 or so domains. I am not using mamp or xampp. As for <1000 you will be fine you can use 10s of 1000s of connection per hour on a mac with a good ...

I do not have experience with mac mini in particular but, from what I can tell... I have been using cloud servers with 512MB of ram and very low cpu throughput, and a single machine has been able to easily handle around 1000 concurrent connections with lighttpd+fastcgi+mongodb server softwares running, and all of that with a 5-10% CPU usage; can't remember ...

To add to what ionfish and jmontano said, you can set up your own DNS server so that it behaves differently based upon where the request comes from. That way, you can have a public server that has a private side. Our server has a public static IP with only mail and web available, but then has a local IP (10.n.n.n) that supplies AFP and other services, but ...

Editing hosts files on all your machines for each project 2-3 times per week is not efficient agreed? Why not use an internet domain which you all have accessed to used for development only. Secure it with htaccess to your office IP's or simply password protect it. You'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want for each project and not have to worry ...

This may get complicated depending on your ISP. If your ISP hasn't blocked port 80 then it is as simple as making sure that your router forwards all requests on port 80 to your computers internal ip, then just going to whatsmyip.org then having him type in http:// followed by your IP address, then of course followed by the subdirectory of XAMPP. Also, ...

I think what you're looking for is dropbox, it allows you to transfer the files without exposing them to the internet and, as it downloads the files to your local machine and performs a continuous differential sync, you get to work with them as if they're on a folder on your local drive (which they are). Dropbox do have some interesting terms of service and ...

Any old PC running Ubuntu will get you up and running. Assuming you are on the end of an ADSL line (or Virgin Broadband) you will be able to use the service provided by dyndns.org to make your box accessible from the outside world with a few settings entered into your router box. Because of how ADSL works - one way is more quickerer than the other - your box ...

One to remember is the difference in Mac's rendering of fonts, and that seems to be at it's most extreme in Safari. I just took these screenshots on my Mac, and you can see that Safari renders the line a bit bigger. Over lots of text, this can have a significant effect on the size of divs. I don't have Windows to hand, so if somebody else could post a ...

The biggest difference I have noticed is with form elements such as dropdowns and input boxes. These can be manipulated easily on Windows Safari (e.g. padding, rounded corners, line-height) but Mac Safari does not adhere to much of this CSS on it's forms. I've also noticed further differences between 'desktop' Safari and mobile Safari - i.e. in an iPad. ...

I'd recommend saving this as PNG24. However, some older versions of Internet Explorer have issues displaying Transparent PNG files. You can get around this using the BelatedPNG Javascript library.
