Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm using a Mac where I've located my webroot folder into a Dropbox sub folder. Everything works fine but I have a problem


It would be great If I could find site-three.com and site-four.com

by digit in my browser http://localhost/site-three.com

instead of http://localhost/john_shared_html/site-three.com

does exists some way to do that with hosts file or something similar? I'm using XAMPP
