Thread: Virtual Hosts Locally
12-16-2003, 11:34 PM #1jleecbdGuestVirtual Hosts Locally
Okay, I'm playing with variable document roots with apache 2, and have defined a virtual host following what appear to be all of the rules from apache.org.
I've created a virtual host called churchCMS. In my /etc/hosts file I've added the line 127.0.0.1 churchCMS just below the 127.0.0.1 localhost line. When I open Safari and type http://churchCMS/ I expect to be taken to the document root specified in the virtual host portion of the httpd.conf file. Instead I get a server not found error.

What I do is add a virtualhost container in my /etc/httpd/httpd.conf file and I give my domains on my system my own extension.. so www.churchcms.my or www.churchcms.loc and then you also have to get into "NetInfo Manager" in your utilities folder. Click on "machines" duplicate your "localhost" config, oh and make sure to authorize by clicking on the lock icon. after duplicating the localhost, select the duplicate and in the bottom pane double click on name field and type in www.churchcms.loc restart apache and that should take care of it!
