I have three Virtual Hosts running in apache2 on my personal Macintosh running OS X Mavericks and I have ran into a knot of confusion. They are configured in my httpd-vhosts.conf file as follows:
<VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "/Library/WebServer/Documents" ServerName localhost ServerAlias localhost </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "/Library/WebServer/Documents/dev1" ServerName dev1.local ServerAlias www.dev1.local </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "/Library/WebServer/Documents/dev2" ServerName dev2.local ServerAlias www.dev2.local </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "/Library/WebServer/Documents/dev3” ServerName dev3.local ServerAlias www.dev3.local </VirtualHost>
Note: The first entry allows me to type in "localhost" and have it load as you'd expect it to without Virtual Hosts running.
dev1 and dev2 work fine, but I get an Error 404 saying "The requested URL / was not found on this server." when I try to load dev3 on the local machine. All three Dev folders have the same permissions I have verified the names. When I checked the error_log I found this:
[Fri Jan 24 12:55:07 2014] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: /Library/WebServer/Documents/dev3\xe2\x80\x9d
Does anyone know why Apache is appending a "\xe2\x80\x9d" to the end of the Folder path, or why dev3 isn't loading? (I suspect these randomly appended characters are why) Any input welcome! Thanks for reading!
