Caddy on MAC - getting permission denied when configuring HTTPS

I am trying to get caddy installed on MAC with automatically configuring HTTPS via letsencrypt. I am getting permission issues since access to port 443 is declined. I see the instructions to get the access using setcap in linux environment, but this library is not available in MAC. Any suggestions?

In that case, you have to run with sudo. That’s what I do anyway. :pensive: While I don’t recommend this for production, if you have to in a local environment, there’s less damage that could be done. (Hint: Caddy has never done damage being run with sudo all the many hours I’ve been developing it.)

Maybe there’s some clever Mac-only trick to run with low ports without root, but I don’t know it.
