Server not found error

Postby BarbaraValenzuela » 11. July 2019 03:43

I have XAMPP set up to look in G:\My Drive which is my Google File Stream virtual drive. It has worked well until now and now I can't get any of my customers' websites up on localhost. vhosts.conf is correctly set up, as is the Windows hosts file. XAMPP\properties.ini points to G: etc. as does httpd.conf. Typing my PC's IP address to activate sthe simple localhost/ link, shows me, interestingly, the first site in my drive, so there's something missing in the setup... help

You cannot use file streams or cloud drives (like dropbox or google drive and so on) as DocumentRoot. That does not work for many reasons, you MUST use a very normal local folder of a local disk.
