I am very new to linux and am having a really rough time installing webmo. I am attempting to download this application to a Mac OS machine and managed to get through the installation process until the step 7. After completing step 6, no URL was provided. I accessed the login.cgi file manually and found the following error messages:


# This script is copyright (c) 2014 by WebMO, LLC, all rights reserved.
# Its use is subject to the license agreement that can be found at the following

use ParsedHTML;

"login.cgi" 111L, 2994C

I think this may be linked to another issue I had during the installation process in Step 3. The specific file org.apache.httpd did not exist in the "LaunchDaemons" folder. A similar file, org.apache.httpd.plist did exist, so I used that file when conducting the sudo defaults write command.

I am really confused, I don't know what I'm doing, and I am afraid I am going to destroy every piece of software in my laptop. It took me three tries to work up the courage to mess with the sudo command. I need help.

Make sure step 3B is correct. You likely missed the "ScriptAlias" command. Scripts are not being executed right now, but rather merely displayed
