I am running Mac Tiger (10.4) with the default Apache server. I am trying to set up virtual hosts and have followed directions from a number of different sources but cannot get this to work. My goal is to use my local machine as a development machine for a few websites so I need about 4 virtual hosts. In the httpd:
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.
# ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org
# DocumentRoot /www/docs/dummy-host.examp
# ServerName dummy-host.example.com
# ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.co
# CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.co
1. All of the examples I read about use www.example.com
as a path. I do not understand why. It seems like you could just use folder names.
2. I am getting A 403 Forbidden error.
3. Can an expert help me with this. Please post specific instructions and apparently there is a difference between Panther setup and TIger setup. I am using NetInfoManager to add the dns. I am not sure what that means but one of the instructions said to do so.
