How can I test a site that uses one or more static domains for serving images locally?

e.g.

  • domain.tld with images servered from static.domain.tld
  • Local working copy of the site on WAMP checked out from SVN: URLs will be pointing at static.domain.tld rather than static.domain.local

Belongs on ServerFault. The basic idea is to use your hosts file to map all the domains to 127.0.0.1, then use name-based VirtualHosts (httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/name-based.html) to distinguish in Apache. –  Matthew Flaschen Apr 9 '10 at 11:31
    
What is a static domain actually? –  Dercsár Apr 9 '10 at 11:41

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking, but you could always put entries in your hosts file if it's a question of resolving static.domain.tld, domain.tld, etc.

%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts:

static.domain.tld   127.0.0.1
someotherstatic.domain.tld   127.0.0.1
