Use an IP based VirtualHost:
A forum search for vhost and/or virtualhost or here:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/

Good luck. :)

ok let me say this --

i want XAMPP to run 1 website on just 1 IP, the other website is being ran from another program
so i dont need to have XAMPP running both websites. does this change anything? so basically i just
want XAMPP running on 1 IP and not running 2 sites on 2 different IPs. (just 1 site on 1 IP)

thanks for the quick reply!!

This other program, is it a web server on the same PC?

You may have port conflicts if you try and run both servers at the same time and they are both using the same ports.

Good luck. :)

That depends on the ports the other program uses.
configure apache to listen to just the one ip. Thats the important part.

XAMPP will be hosting a site on IP#1 on the default port of 80.
this other hosting program will be hosting a site on IP#2 on port 30000

BUT i do not want IP#1 to work with port 30000 and i do not want IP#2 to work with default port 80

You can tell Apache to listen only on a specific IP address. If you open the "xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf" file, you can edit the line "Listen 80" to "Listen IP#1:80" with your desired IP, and restart Apache. I do not know what you are hosting the other site with but you might be able to do a similar restriction.
