I installed just fine on mac OSX Yosemite, but the login page won't launch "Not Found The requested URL /~JRA/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi was not found on this server."

I wasn't able to do the following modifications:
Additional step for Mac OS X Server ONLY)
Edit the file: /Library/Server/Web/Config/apache2/httpd_server_app.conf
Uncomment the line 'Include /private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-userdir.conf'
Uncomment the line 'LoadModule apple_userdir_module...'

I'm a bit rusty in terminal mode, but I can't even find the files to edit them. I can find the /Library/Server but that's as far as I can get directory wise in the terminal.

Also, I wasn't able to exit the insert mode normally. Tried :wq and everything, ended up having to ctrl[ to get out.

You most likely are not running OS X server (but rather normal OS X), so the extra instructions are irrelevant.

Note that you DO need to follow step C to edit the Apache configuration files. It sounds like those configuration files probably did not get saved after you edited. You might try the 'nano' editor if you are not familiar with VI.

I'm having the same issue as Jeremy, although I didn't try to edit the Server-only changes as I'm not on a server.

http://localhost/~student/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi gives me a 404 Not Found page. I did modify the /etc/apache2/users/student.conf as explained in the instructions. Turned apache on and off too. Rebooted even. Same.

Turns out there were some MAJOR changes to the default Apache2 configuration on Yosemite. I updated the installation instructions for OS X, which I believe are now up to date.
