I've got LAMP setup on a VM that I use for multiple projects. My document root is a /www and I create a folder for each project within it.
I access them in my browser like this:
I'd like to move my htaccess and index files to a public folder within a project, so they match their production setup more accurately.
...but still access them with the same url as above. How can I get Apache configured to look for public/ folders as document roots for each of my projects?
Note: I understand I can create hosts and vhost entries for each project to have it's own document root, but I'm trying to to avoid that - because I plan on using a similar setup on my remote server to house multiple projects at a subdomain called 'demo'.
