Not a question. Simply sharing some personal notes (no warrantees or etc. buyer beware! (and back up each file before you touch it!)):

IF:

a) You've been using Apache's vhost on your Mac to enable local .dev URLS within your Sites directory, and

AND:

b) You've just upgraded to OS X 10.11 El Capitan

THEN:

c) You've found that it's "broken."

Right?

Well, happily, the "cure" is mostly found here:

But after that if you try loading a .dev page you'll probably get a server 500 error. As revealed in the site error logs (/private/var/log/apache2/yourlocalsitename), you'll also want:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10144634/htaccess-invalid-command-rewriteengine-perhaps-misspelled-or-defined-by-a-m

Remember to uncomment these additional two lines in httpd.conf

LoadModule rewrite_module libexec/apache2/mod_rewrite.so
LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache2/libphp5.so

Since Statamic needs both .htaccess and php!

Finally, YYMV, but I had to go into Terminal and blast permissions wide open via "sudo chmod -R 777 each-sites-top-level-directory (Yeah, you can tweak that down a bit, but I didn't want to fiddle with it.)

And that finally did it for me.

Oh, and if you are using localhost (based in /Library/WebServer/Documents), just delete the index.html.en that El Capitan tossed in there, along with the two companion .gif files of OS X logos, and you're good to go!
