# Setting up httpd-vhosts.conf for multiple virtual hosts

I have a simple test setup using xampp at home, and I am getting really weird behavior when I attempt to set up multiple virtual hosts on this box. Here is my vhosts file:

 NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName foo
DocumentRoot "D:\wamp\xampp\htdocs\foo"
ErrorLog logs/foo-error_log
CustomLog logs/foo-access_log common
<Directory "D:\wamp\xampp\htdocs\foo">
AllowOverride All
Order Allow,Deny
Allow From All
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName bar
DocumentRoot "D:\wamp\xampp\htdocs\bar"
ErrorLog logs/bar-error_log
CustomLog logs/bar-access_log common
<Directory "D:\wamp\xampp\htdocs\bar">
AllowOverride All
Order Allow,Deny
Allow From All
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>


When I attempt to run visit the first site, it works as expected.

When I attempt to run the second site, I get a weird hybrid mishmash of both sites. It's the weirdest thing.

firstly you need to specify the tld in servername, i.e. foo.com or www.foo.com.

On the other hand... have you setup your hosts file in order to resolve foo.com or www.foo.com? If no, go to windows->system32->drivers->etc->hosts and add a line like this: 127.0.0.1 www.foo.com

thanks... it worked with one without a TLD, so I didn't think it was required. –  Chris Sobolewski Jan 11 '11 at 4:05
