Local deploy of website using apache

Open httpd.conf file located in /etc/apache2, and make following changes:

  1. Load the mod_include module by adding or uncommenting the following line, near the top of the file on Mac OS X 10.10.4:

    LoadModule include_module libexec/apache2/

    You can also use the a2enmod command in environments other than Mac OS X.

  2. Locate in your file :

    # Controls who can get stuff from this server.
    Require all granted


  3. Replace all that code with the one below :

    # Deny access to the entirety of your server's filesystem. You must
    # explicitly permit access to web content directories in other
    # <Directory> blocks below.
    <Directory />
        AllowOverride none
        Require all denied
    # Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
    # particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as
    # you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
    # below.
    # DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
    # documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
    # symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
    DocumentRoot "/Users/prachig/ignite-web/website/trunk"
    <Directory "/Users/prachig/ignite-web/website/trunk">
        # Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
        # or any combination of:
        #   Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
        # Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
        # doesn't give it to you.
        # The Options directive is both complicated and important.  Please see
        # for more information.
        Options FollowSymLinks Multiviews Includes
        MultiviewsMatch Any
        # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
        # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
        #   AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
        AllowOverride None
        # Controls who can get stuff from this server.
        Require all granted

    Make sure to provide correct values for: 

    DocumentRoot "path-to-ignite-website-folder" 

    <Directory "path-to-ignite-website-folder">

  4. Locate in your file:

    <IfModule mime_module>
    # To parse .shtml files for server-side includes (SSI):
    # (You will also need to add "Includes" to the "Options" directive.)
    #AddType text/html .shtml
    #AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml


  5. Add following lines after comments:

    AddType text/html .html
    AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .html
  6. Start Apache HTTP Server, in the terminal, using:

    $ sudo apachectl start

    If this command fails for you try this instead:

    sudo apachectl -k start
  7. In your browser, type- localhost:80


Edit CSS

You can edit "all.scss" and "ignite.scss" files. Run SCSS watchdog using:

 $ compass watch scss/all.scss

Do NOT edit all.css directly. 

To make sure browsers upload the most recent Ignite CSS files update the css version number in HTML files by running the following script at 'trunk' level :
grep -rl 'all.css?v=1.5' * | xargs sed -i '' 's/all.css?v=1.5/all.css?v=1.6/g'
Here, 1.5 (just some number as example) is the existing version, and 1.6 is the new version.
