Mac OSX Local Web Server for Tasmota Firmware Binaries

blakadder edited this page Nov 4, 2019 · 2 revisions

Mac OSX comes with a built in web server, although it's not running by default. Starting the web server can be done by running:

sudo apachectl start

To start the server, you'll be asked for your user's password.

Opening your localhost will show you 'it works!', which will tell you that much - it works.

The folder to put files in is

/Library/WebServer/Documents

You may wish to create a subfolder for the firmware files.

Use the IP address of this local web server to OTA flash Tasmota. You can determine your IP address here. For example,

http://192.168.1.123/tasmota-basic.bin

Issue this command to stop the web server when your are done flashing:

sudo apachectl stop

Note: The MAMP web server does not seem to deliver the results as expected!
