I’m one of the few people who has blazed this trail on the newer versions of OS X Server, mainly using the macports installation method with a few modifications. If you want to email me off the list, I can share my insights. Alternately, search the archives for my previous posts/fixes for this, as I’ve tried to document my challenges.

Nonetheless, I have not run into any contradictions. It appears that the choices for the locations of the various configuration files made when transitioning from Mac OS X Snow Leopard to Mac OS X Lion to OS X Mountain Lion have remained stable.

I kept getting the "Operation not permitted." error. I learned that this is due to System Integrity Protection (SIP), introduced in OS X El Capitan.
