I'm hoping someone can help me.
I've installed XAMPP and followed this simple guide to setting up vhosts http://jonathannicol.com/blog/2012/03/11/configuring-virtualhosts-in-xampp-on-mac/ however my vhost reports as 404. I've been trying everything I can think of and last night started checking the error log for apache when I see it complaining about a none existing directory, here I can see the directory is '/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/<someweirdstring>/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/base' however all I put in my vhost was '/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/base' clearly something is adding a prefix to the directory string.
Can someone explain why it's doing this? It obviously won't work as that directory doesn't exist.
Thanks in advance.
