The preferred filesystem for Mac OS X is Apple's HFS+ and most
setups use it. HFS+ is a case insensitive filesystem.
Apache's directory protection (and other methods that depend on
filesystem object names) cannot handle this and breaks. For example,
both Directory and Location configuration options break.
Apache works on Windows, which also uses a case-insensitive
filesystem. Anybody know how that works? Could it be easily adapted
to MacOS X?
