Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2) screws host resolution

As Justin Carmony points out, Mac OS Lion changed its behavior towards DNS and the usage of /etc/hosts (it quite disregards this file).

This has several ugly effects, including:

  • no matter how many Apache Virtual Hosts you've set up, you will only get the first (that is, the implicit default), and only by typing localhost into your browser
  • the Passenger pref pane won't work any more (actually it does, but it has no effect)

Your development team has a full backlog of feature requests, chores and refactoring coupled with deadlines? We are familiar with that. With our "DevOps as a Service" offering, we support developer teams with infrastructure and operations expertise.
