I have XAMPP running on Windows 10. I am trying to setup a Virtual Host so that when I use "myapp.dev" as a domain I get directly to my public folder of laravel project.
Laravel is located at C:/xampp/htdocs/myapp/public.
By using http://localhost:8000/myapp/public/ i can access laravel index.php
So far i have tried the following:
http v-host.conf file
#this is the default address of XAMPP    
<VirtualHost *:8000>
   DocumentRoot "C:/XAMPP/htdocs/"
   ServerName localhost
</VirtualHost>


<VirtualHost *:8000>
    DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/myapp/public"
    ServerName myapp.test
    SetEnv NS_ENV variable_value
</VirtualHost>

and in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\host file

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1:8000 myapp.test

and after restarting apache and typing myapp.test leads to iis homepage instead of index.php in public folder.
