WIN 10 with XAMPP 7.0.9 - local hosts

Postby dmreed » 16. October 2016 13:23

I am running Win 10 Pro 64x with XAMPP 7.0.9. I have two directories which I need to access as local hosts: g:/8081dmreed and g:/8082devsite.

I have searched the web quite a bit for an answer and have not found an answer to my need

Can someone who is actually using WIN 10 (preferably x64) with XAMPP 7.0.9, please provide me exact code for the Windows "hosts" file and the Apache files httpd.conf, httpd-vhosts.conf, and any required additional files.

It is impossible to access more than one directory as localhost. How should a browser know, which one of these directories is required, when you enter http://localhost?

http://localhost:1234
http://localhost:1235

http://site1.localhost
http://site2.localhost

http://localhost/site1
http://localhost/site2

all of these can be directories requestable from localhost :D
just my three cents

Isn't there anyone here who is actually running WIN 10 and XAMPP 7.0.9 with multiple local host directories?

Everyone seems to just be quoting various and different suggestions or personal opinions from different sites and forums, etc.

Surely some has actually managed to implement the scenario I first described. I previously had the 2 local host directories working on previous versions of Windows using XAMPP 1.7.3 but the previous code does not work for Windows 10.

How to create virtual hosts in Apache 2.4 is a common task. I cannot believe you can't find anything at the internet...

there are a lot of proposed solutions, none of them describe my problem or they simply have not worked for me. that is why I am asking if someone who is/has actually used Win 10 and XAMPP 7.0.9 with multiple local hosts in at least 2 separate directories.

Than maybe you didn't describe your problem very well.

You only said you want to serve two different directories from your local host. This is the very first example from this official Apache manual:

This simply proofs, that you got it wrong....

No, exactly that is your misunderstanding (you did not read carefully). He did not say, he wants to serve different directorys from localhost, instead he wants to access these as localhost. You see the small, but anyway big difference?! To serve "from" is not the same as to serve "as". Its obvious, that he is looking for two DocumentRoots for one host.
