****UPDATE- I got it working now, I just had to change to The port number is important here.**
I just modified my windows HOST file @ C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
and added this to the end of it
127.0.0.1 images.localhost 127.0.0.1 w-w-w.friendproject-.com 127.0.0.1 friendproject.-com
Then I modified my httpd-vhosts.conf file on Apache under Xampp @ C:\webserver\apache\conf\extra
Under the part where it shows examples for adding virtualhost I added this code below:
NameVirtualHost *:80 <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /htdocs/images/ ServerName images.localhost </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /htdocs/ ServerName friendproject.com/ </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /htdocs/ ServerName w-ww-.friendproject.c-om/ </VirtualHost>
Now the problem is when I go to any of the newly added domains in the browser I get this error below and even worse news is I now get this error even when going to http://localhost/ which worked fine before doing this
I realize I can change everything back but I really need to at least get htt-p://im-ages.localhost to work.
What do I do?
