Apache + Passenger on OSX

I’m trying to get Passenger working on a fresh install of OSX Snow
Leopard and can’t get around this permission issue:

[Thu May 12 16:06:34 2011] [error] [client] (13)Permission

Here is my vhost configuration:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot “/Users/tom/sites/mysite/public”
# RackEnv production
ServerName mysite.local
<Directory “/Users/tom/sites/mysite/public”>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from any

I have verified its hitting the right vhost, but it continues to
report permission denied? I’ve also tried variations of file
permissions on the site folder (777 even!) but no joy. Any help is
much appreciated!


Silly question - have you checked permissions on ALL dirs in the path,
including /Users and your home?

Hi Tom,

I use on my MBP this nice passenger preference pane, which does all
the configuration for me.
works like a charm: GitHub - Fingertips/passengerpane: A Mac OS X preference pane for easily configuring Rails applications with Passenger.

good luck
