Web Server Added to OS X Lion Server with 10.7.3 Update
The recently released Mac OS X 10.7.3 update is proving to be a more significant upgrade than originally anticipated, with the update for OS X Lion Server adding a simple web server.
The web server pane is found in the Server application, and has the standard features you would expect. Apple specifies the following capabilities about the web pane in the 10.7.3 Server release notes:
- enable .htaccess overrides
- edit web sites’ domain names
- map multiple domains into a single web site
- configure redirects and aliases
- specify custom index files
- choose SSL certificates for individual websites
Due to some of the reported problems with the OS X 10.7.3 update, it’s recommended to install with the Combo Updater (link for Server Combo) rather than through Software Update.
When OS X Lion Server initially shipped, some longtime users were surprised to discover no web server had been included. The addition in 10.7.3 is welcome, and was first discovered by @MacMiniVault, who runs a colocation service for Mac Mini Servers. MacMiniVault also noted that PostgreSQL is the default database server for OS X Lion, ditching the longstanding MySQL that was featured in Snow Leopard Server.

Maybe I was not clear in giving details. I had Server installed previously (10.7.1) and the combo update I talking is Server combo update. You solution, if I’m not mistaken is to purchase Server.app again?
Is this helpful? Thanks.
You need to download it from AppStore
Lion Server 10.7.3 add too User connected in Sharing, at last :)
After running combo update Server.app was not updated to the latest version 10.7.3. It is still version 10.7.1. Any idea what is happening? I cannot access web server pane because in 10.7.1 version it doesn’t exist.
