asked on

point ip to folder on server

I have just setup a static IP (external) to point to my local pc using wamp.

On my web host, Ive also created an 'A' record of client.mydomain.com to point to the static ip.

problem is when I access client.mydomain.com, it goes to the root of my wamp server (showing all projects.)

how to I make it point to the client. I assume its a specific entry in http.conf.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here are a number of methods including http.conf..

Hello,

You need to add a VirtualHost entry in Httpd.conf file.

Please refer: http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2011/07/apache-virtual-host/ which show how you can configure virtual host with example.
It is pretty much the same as your other Q:

in your httpd.conf file find DocumentRoot "C:/wamp/www"

and change it to DocumentRoot "f:/wamp/www/xxxx"

Thanks guys for all of your comments, but still not working.

So here is what ive done so far.

1. I have added an A record to client.mydomain.com which uses my ip address as provided my service provider. this is static.

2. I have added port forwarding for http to port 80.

3. I have installed wamp (running windows).

Expectations.

1. When I type in client.mydomain.com (externally : e.g if im in another country) I want it to load the website on my pc, which is currently located in c:/wamp/www/client

Issues

1. when I type in my ip directly, I get the error
"Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server."

2. when I do a port forwarding tester (http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/), it says port 80, along with every other port is blocked.

I have disabled my firewalls.

So a bit stuck here.
