View Full Version : set up a subdomain on Xaamp

On my hosting account I have

http://forums/domain.com set up as a subdomain
where the absolute path was domain/forums

This was done using my host's tools.

I want to parallel this set up on my desktop, which has Xaamp set up on it.

I know I need to edit the xampp/apache/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf file but I'm not sure how.

I want my localhost/forums directory to be accessible as

http://forums.localhost/

when I enter it into a browser.




For the record, this in xampp/apache/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf doesn't work:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "C:/Documents and Settings/Peter/My Documents/My Dropbox/Math Website"
ServerName localhost

<Directory "C:/Documents and Settings/Peter/My Documents/My Dropbox/Math Website">

AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>

Did you mean http://forums.localhost (http://forums.localhost)

Yes, you are correct; sorry that was a typo, I'll fix that up in the original post.

Have you uncommented the line
NameVirtualHost *:80 in your httpd-vhosts.conf file?

NameVirtualHost *:80 in your httpd-vhosts.conf file?


Yes, I think I have. The full httpd-vhosts is as follows:


#
# Virtual Hosts
#
# If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.

#
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
NameVirtualHost *:80

#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for all requests that do not
# match a ServerName or ServerAlias in any <VirtualHost> block.
#
##<VirtualHost *:80>
##ServerAdmin postmaster@dummy-host.localhost
##DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/dummy-host.localhost"
##ServerName dummy-host.localhost
##ServerAlias www.dummy-host.localhost
##ErrorLog "logs/dummy-host.localhost-error.log"
##CustomLog "logs/dummy-host.localhost-access.log" combined
##</VirtualHost>

##<VirtualHost *:80>
##ServerAdmin postmaster@dummy-host2.localhost

##ServerAlias www.dummy-host2.localhost

Confirming the following line is present in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc:


127.0.0.1 forums.localhost

Tried on Xaamp restart; it didn't make a difference...

And while we're at it, here is my entire httpd.config; maybe you can spot where the problem is:


#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2> for detailed information.
# In particular, see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "C:/xampp/apache" will be interpreted by the
# server as "C:/xampp/apache/logs/foo.log".
#
# NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes
# instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").
# If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which httpd.exe is located
# will be used by default. It is recommended that you always supply
# an explicit drive letter in absolute paths to avoid confusion.

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path. If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive
# at a local disk. If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple
# httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.
#
ServerRoot "C:/xampp/apache"

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 0.0.0.0:80
#Listen [::]:80
Listen 80

I think i've got it working

the stupid browser kept correcting my url for some reason - i put in http://forum.localhost/ and it kept automatically inserting www before the subdomain name.

hopefully should be fine hereon in
