Hello I'm having trouble trying to get reviewboard working on my mac 
mini(snow leopard).  I've successfully installed all of the 3rd party stuff 
and am at this page  Creating The Review 
 I've been able to run rb-site install /var/www/reviews.example.com 
successfully and it creates all of the files etc.  I've successfully 
changed all of the permissions to _www user. Now when I view my site all I 
see is an "Index Of" page with the folders that are included under the 
instal directory for reviewboard.  However, I only see the directory 
listing when I DO NOT have the generated .conf symbolic link placed in 
etc/apache2/other.  When I place the .conf file in that directory(which is 
where others have mentioned they've put it when on OSX) then I get the 
following:"Oops! Google Chrome could not connect"

You might mention something about removing default file 
 However, I cannot find any corresponding file on MacOSX.  And regardless 
my problem is when I put the symbolic link in the folder mentioned above.

Install Parameters:
Domain Name: www.mysite.com
root path: /
media url: media/
database type: sqlite3(even though I have mysql it doesn't show up in the 
list.... weird)
Cache type: memcached
memcache server: default value thingy
web server: apache
Python Loader: wsgi(i've also tried w/ fastcgi but i have exactly the same 
problem as mentioned above)

* The site has been installed

    The site has been installed in /Users/me/Sites/reviewboard

The technical details:
Apache/2.2.21 (Unix)
SQLite3 module version 0.7-dev
SQLite Library
memcached 1.4.10
pycrypto 2.6
python 2.7.3
using reviewboard with perforce(setup and working)

-LoadModule wsgi_module libexec/apache2/mod_wsgi.so  (yes mod_wsgi.so 
actualy exists and is installed in that directory)
-User _www
-Group _www
-DocumentRoot "/Users/me/Sites"
-<Directory "/Users/pgrigs/Sites">

-I've also tried "Include 
/Users/pgrigs/sites/reviewboard/conf/apache-wsgi.conf" (not sure if I need 
to do this or not)

    ServerAdmin webmas...@mysite.com

*apache-wsgi.conf(which i create a symbolic link of and place in

I think that's all the important info. Please help with this as I've used 
reviewboard before and enjoyed it a lot.  I'd really like to get this up 
and running for my team project as it's incredibly helpful!  Thank you for 
your help!
