I'm trying to create subdomains on my localhost and am way out of my territory... I'm running MAMP on my Mac OS X and I thought/think I had/have to do the following:
(Assuming I want to create me.localhost.com and you.localhost.com)
(1) Edit /private/etc/hosts
Right now, it looks like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost fe80::1%lo0 localhost
So, do I just make it:
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.0.1 me.localhost.com 127.0.0.1 you.localhost.com 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost fe80::1%lo0 localhost
(2) I'm assuming I don't need to mess with DNS at all because it's local? So, the hosts file should suffice?
(3) And then, I need to edit my httpd.conf file to include virtual hosts? I tried this, but it's not picking it up...
NameVirtualHost * <VirtualHost *> DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs" ServerName localhost </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *> DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/me.localhost.com" ServerName me.localhost.com </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *> DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/you.localhost.com" ServerName you.localhost.com </VirtualHost>
Not sure if I'm way off-base here... Help is greatly appreciated!
