Xampp docs folder:
c:\xampp\htdocs

Website:
c:\xampp\htdocs\TickTock_int

The server runs on http:\\localhost:888

Can someone please tell me exactly how to set up a virtual directory called "business" which will point to the
index.php page in c:\xampp\htdocs\TickTock_int such that when I type http://localhost:888/business I will go to the site

For better or worse, computer work requires considerable precision.  You might want to check that "888" part -- it might be 8888?

My apache server  is working on http://localhost:888

I was under the impression that I needed to edit the following file:

C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf file

Sorry-  wrong file:

It is the c:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file that needs to be edited

I wanted to be able to see how to use virtual directories
Problem solved using the entries below:

In the alias section of the httpd.conf file:
Alias /business "C:/xampp/htdocs/TickTock_int"


Create a directory entry:
<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs/TickTock_int">
  Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews ExecCGI
  AllowOverride All
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
</Directory>

This works when I use http://localhost:888/business
