I have a local development tool (LocalWP) that sets the path to my local environment by modifying
For example, if I set my site in Local to
www.foo.com, it'll append the following to the hosts file:
This is fine, but I need to exclude a subdirectory (not a subdomain) in this domain, so it resolves to another (the original) IP.
Of course, this isn't possible with
etc/hosts because it is just a DNS pointer and doesn't resolve anything except the domain. However, I'm wondering if there's another tool I can use to exclude a subdirectory from the current
hosts file, and point it to a new IP.
I'm wondering if something like dnsmasq can accomplish this, or if there's another tool I could use for some conditional DNS behavior based on the resolution of the path, rather than just the domain.
