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.
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
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:
SQLite3 module version 0.7-dev
SQLite Library 18.104.22.168
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)
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI
# 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 Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
Allow from all
-I've also tried "Include
/Users/pgrigs/sites/reviewboard/conf/apache-wsgi.conf" (not sure if I need
to do this or not)
CustomLog "/private/var/log/apache2/mysite.com-access_log" common
*apache-wsgi.conf(which i create a symbolic link of and place in
# Error handlers
ErrorDocument 500 /errordocs/500.html
WSGIScriptAlias "/" "/Users/me/Sites/reviewboard/htdocs/reviewboard.wsgi/"
Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks
Allow from all
# Alias static media requests to filesystem
Alias /media "/Users/me/Sites/reviewboard/htdocs/media"
Alias /errordocs "/Users/me/Sites/reviewboard/htdocs/errordocs"
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
