It took me quite some time yesterday, but I think I've got it working... *think*

Ya know, all of this started THREE WEEKS AGO when I was trying - and still am - add an "Add a Comment to an Article" module on my website to make it move Web 2.0 and since then I've had to: 1.) Convert physical articles to my MySQL database - which still isn't working entirely, 2.) Create "pretty URLs" and learn about mod_rewrites, 3.) Struggle with Absolute Paths, and now 4.) Learn about Virtual Hosts?!
I am going CRAZY over all of this unforeseen extra work!!!!
I actually changed it so I could see hidden files and then made copies (i.e. backed up) my config files before following the link you sent.
I don't think so. The files just sit on your Mac as they are. You aren't changing them at all.
Also, as usual, I commented the heck out of my files so I can roll-back anything that causes issues.
