Problems with the Mac OS X version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.
A quick question and thank you for your help.
I have a new project inside the htdocs folder called "project" and I would like to setup a new project to be accessed via http://project/ insteead of http://localhost/project/
Can someone please elaborate as to how I may achieve this ?

We require your XAMPP version and your Windows Version to provide the correct version support.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=48331viewtopic.php?f=16&t=32670
You may need to use VirtualHosts where you can put your project anywhere on your PC which will also allow you the URI you require.

@ MrAlexander -
You will likely also need a hosts file entry for your browser to resolve the "http://project" address (which, for your browser, is a 'host name') as there is no reference to the http://localhost
(generally a reserved hostname) in the proposed URL.http://support.apple.com/kb/TA27291
