After adding a local virtual host in MAMP PRO (os x lion) everything works as expected. Out of curiosity I had a look at httpd-vhosts.conf file placed in MAMP/conf/apache/extra and to my surprise this is all I can see:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin email@example.com DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/Library/docs/dummy-host.example.com" ServerName dummy-host.example.com ServerAlias www.dummy-host.example.com ErrorLog "logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log" CustomLog "logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log" common </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/Library/docs/dummy-host2.example.com" ServerName dummy-host2.example.com ErrorLog "logs/dummy-host2.example.com-error_log" CustomLog "logs/dummy-host2.example.com-access_log" common </VirtualHost>
It hasn't added my virtual host into the file and I don't even see a path to localhost (but it works!) Does it have to do with the fact that MAMP is using a httpd.conf template? Where is the info about my virtual hosts stored? Can I add virtual hosts manually?
