I have installed XAMP successfully and it's looking great.
Instead of copying my site to /htdocs/ I would like http://localhost to point to my website that is located somewhere else on my HD.
This way I can manage it better, for version control, and there's also the issue that I have multiple sites.
I hoped I could change the path by changing doc_root in php.ini (and restart Apache) but that doesn't seem to work.
I'm a novice ... any advice you can give is appreciated.
It would be nice if I could, relatively flexible, change this root so that I can test multiple sites offline (on my HD) without having to copy the actual sites constantly to /xampp/htdocs/ .
Is this possible and how ?
