My local Apache service is running perfectly fine. I am running WAMP.

I am trying to configure my .httpd file so that I can access specific projects as fully qualified domain names like: mysite.com ( but resolves to something like localhost/myfoldername/).

I was able to get it working with a different port number like:

localhost:8080

And localhost:80 is my root web dir.

Here is my current .httpd config:

listening: 80 (defined higher in the .httpd)

.... below was added to my .httpd

NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8080

Listen 127.0.0.1:8080

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8080>

ServerName www.jobeet.com

DocumentRoot "C:\wamp\www\symfony\jobeet\web"
  DirectoryIndex index.php
  <Directory "C:\wamp\www\symfony\jobeet\web">
    AllowOverride All
    Allow from All
  </Directory>

  Alias /sf C:\wamp\www\symfony\jobeet\lib\vendor\symfony-1.4.8\data\web\sf
  <Directory "C:\wamp\www\symfony\jobeet\lib\vendor\symfony-1.4.8\data\web\sf">
    AllowOverride All
    Allow from All
  </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

And here is my Windows host file config:

127.0.0.1       localhost
127.0.0.1:8080  www.jobeet.com.localhost

If anyone has any ideas, please tell me! I've been on this for over 8 hours : ( thx.

What is wrong?... ping www.jobeet.com.localhost? netstat -n? www.jobeet.com.localhost open in boruser? –  alvosu Jan 29 '11 at 20:01

A hosts file only supports translations of IP addresses to names, so the :8080 is totally unnessesary.

Additionally, because the hosts file is not actually DNS at all, you don't enter any search suffixes, so you should only enter the entire domain name. SO dump the .localhost from it as well. It should read:

127.0.0.1       localhost
127.0.0.1       www.jobeet.com

Of course, then you will lose all access to the REAL www.jobeet.com, but you can't have it both ways.
