Should it be possible to run a Web AppBuilder application on a Mac?


  1. I'm using the Developer edition of WAB on Windows 7 to create a simple WAB application
  2. I Download the application from WAB and put it in the Windows machine's /inetpub/wwwroot/xyz folder
  3. the application works as expected when accessed via http://localhost/xyz  on the Windows machine
  4. I zip up the application and copy it across to a Mac which is running Apache, and put it in the /Library/WebServer/Documents/xyz folder
  5. the application fails to run on the Mac, with multiple 404 errors:

404 errors

eg: http://localhost/http://localhost//jsapi/jsapi/dojo/resources/dojo.css Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)


Why is the path referencing localhost twice (http://localhost/http://localhost//jsapi/)? Note that this doesn't occur on the Windows machine.


Is a WAB application supported on a Mac? thanks
