I'm trying to set up virtual hosts for local development and can't seem to get it working.
I have this in my httpd.conf:
NameVirtualHost * <VirtualHost *> ServerName localhost DocumentRoot C:/Users/Elliot/dev/UniServer/www </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *> ServerName drupal.dev DocumentRoot C:/Users/Elliot/dev/UniServer/www/drupal.dev/httpdocs </VirtualHost>
and this in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts:
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.0.1 drupal.dev
http://localhost resolves OK, http://drupal.dev/ does not.
Any ideas welcomed...
Edit: I'm pretty sure that my hosts file is the underlying problem and that any edits are being ignored.
Oddly, I can edit, save and delete it without elevated permissions, which should not be the case on Windows >= Vista.
Am working through 'What can cause a DNS lookup to ignore a hosts file entry?', 'HOSTS file being ignored' and 'Problem with the hosts file in Windows XP (as a new user I can't post links).
Edit: in my case, stopping the DNS Client service resolved the issue....
Edit: ...but only very briefly.
