    Hello,

    I just installed LS on my Apple with OSX.

    I (newbie) have a problem:

    when i want to change to a sub-directory of lsws, nothing seems to happen:
    Code:
       henq:/usr/local/lsws henq$ pwd
       /usr/local/lsws
       henq:/usr/local/lsws henq$ sudo cd conf/
       Password:
       henq:/usr/local/lsws henq$       #still at same dir.

    I also have a question: How do I tell LS to use the following path as the document root?

    Code:
      /Library/WebServer/Documents
    ( I hoped I could set the docroot with the install script, but that doesnt seem to be the case).
    I suspect its has something to do with setting an environment var. But what steps are involved, where is the relevant start-up script? (Is it in the config subdir that I connot reach)? Thank you in advance.

    ~h

    sudo will start a new shell to execute the command and quit to the former shell, so the directory does not change.
    You need to use "sudo sh" then execute your command.

    You need to login to the web admin interface, then create a new vhost, please check out Bob Silva
