Hi Wonder if anyone can help.
I have trying to get virtual hosts working on a local installation of xampp with not much success for the last few hours, all the numerous examples I have tried just seem to point to the same thing - it looks pretty simple, set hosts & add into httpd-vhosts.
The hosts file part seems to be working but I'm unsure about the virtual host part.
The problem is it just loads up the xampp welcome page.
Ideally I want to set up so the virtual hosts point to a mapped drive, but for the moment I'd be happy with just pointing to a folder in the htdocs !
Is there a way to check that my virtual hosts part is working ?
Use name-based virtual hosting. # NameVirtualHost *:80
#ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/testdomain" ServerName www.testdomain.com ##ServerAlias www.dummy-host.localhost ##ErrorLog "logs/dummy-host.localhost-error.log" ##CustomLog "logs/dummy-host.localhost-access.log" combined #Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
127.0.0.1 localhost #::1 localhost
