Installing LedgerSMB on Mac OS X

I've been trying to install LedgerSMB in Mac OS X (10.4.9), and then got sidetracked into importing it as an Eclipse Project.

But there are some things I have learned along the way:

Use Mac OS X's native web server. It is Apache 1.3 and it works. Activating mod_perl is optional but is only a matter of removing a couple of hash marks. All one needs to do is drop LedgerSMB's configuration file into /etc/httpd/users and start (or restart) the web server using the Sharing Pane of System Preferences.

Although Mac OS X's Perl (5.8.6) is not the most recent one (5.8.8), it will still work with LSMB.

Eclipse with the EPIC (Eclipse Perl Integration ...) and Subclipse (Subversion) plugins allowed me to checkout LSMB and run it as a CGI project which in effect it is. Eclipse has it's own internal web server which I've yet to configure properly.

To be continued...
