I have XAMPP running on my desktop machine, and I do all my work on it with no issue.
http://localhost ---> points to public_html http://site1.localhost ---> points to site 1 http://site2.localhost ---> points to site 2 http://site3.localhost ---> points to site 3
Entering the above URLs in my web browser on the machine with Apache works great, and I can work on multiple sites within distinct subdomains.
But what I want to do now is to transfer Apache and all the files to another Windows 7 machine within the LAN, but still be able to view the subdomains from my main development machine.
With a vanilla XAMPP installation on the new hosting machine, entering the IP address of that machine (e.g. 192.168.1.10) into my development computer would send me to the main public_html folder.
But how do I set up subdomains such that I can access it externally? For example, http://site1.devmachine
Thanks for any help.
