Chapter 5

OS X Server


This chapter covers how to install and configure “server services” such as the Apache web service, mail, VPN, wiki, WEB-DAV, and other public and private services to allow access to what are typically considered “server” products and services. This includes configuring shared data access to files directly from iPhone and iPad and customized wiki services to restrict data access to specific users.

The advanced section shows users to customize server certificates in order to ensure that traffic is both encrypted and authenticated.
