Starting diagnose...
Sorry, I've no idea what's going wrong.

include /etc/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf


Ummm - wrong path

if you start the path with a slash - it means start from the root. You are pointing to the /etc folder that belongs to your Linux distributions installation, not LAMPP.

use either
absolute path
Code: Select all
Include /opt/lampp/etc/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf


or
relative path
Code: Select all
Include etc/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

(no slash)

Good Luck

Aaaah that helped me out :)
The error was caused by ServerAlias tag in httpd-vhost.conf

Thanks guys!!!!!!!!
