Mac OS X vhosts not working after yoemite / el capitan upgrade

This is because you forgot to back up your httpd.conf… – easily fixed: First, back up the current httpd.conf: (you’ll need to be root, so either su or run the following commands with sudo) cd /etc/apache2 mv httpd.conf httpd.conf.preUpgrade mv httpd.conf~previous httpd.conf and then restart apache: apachectl restart now your local vhosts will work again.
