Hi,

I`m currently learning apache.  I want to use virtual hosts directive to host multiple test sites.  Currently I have apache setup to listen on port 8080 and 8181 and a virtual host on 8181.  

NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8181

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8181>
      ServerName mywebsite.local
      DocumentRoot "C:/MyWebSite"
      ServerAlias testname
</VirtualHost>

This works fine using 127.0.0.1:8080 and 127.0.0.1:8181 as the web address.  However if I type in mywebsite.local I get a dns unresolved hostname error.
