I am wondering if I should or should not have a trailing slash on my Virtual Host that I created to do development on my MacBook.

Here is what I currently have...


1.) My Macintosh HD: private: etc: hosts as follows..
Code:
127.0.0.1 local.one
127.0.0.1 local.debbie

2.) My Applications: MAMP: conf: apache: httpd.conf as follows...
Code:
NameVirtualHost *

<VirtualHost *:80>
# DocumentRoot /Applications/MAMP/htdocs
DocumentRoot "/Users/user1/Documents/DEV/++htdocs"
ServerName localhost
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/Users/user1/Documents/DEV/++htdocs/00_AAA"
ServerName local.one
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/Users/user1/Documents/DEV/++htdocs/06_Debbie"
ServerName local.debbie
</VirtualHost>

Someone told me that Apache always appends a "/" after the Domain or Local Host, but I am thinking I should manually define it in the samples above?!


(Personally, when I go to "www.MySite.com" or "local.debbie" I do NOT want to see a "/" after the domain/host, because most people see those as "Home Pages" and not the "Root Directory" if you follow me?! However, if I had an empty directory, then "local.debbie/uploads" would seem to make more sense.)

Hope all of this makes sense?!

Thanks,


Debbie
