Subject [users@httpd] Getting Started With Virtual Hosts
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2004 13:05:24 GMT
I'm just starting to learn about virtual hosting and
would like to ask a few questions. It looks like it
might be pretty simple, but I'd like to make sure I'm
pointed in the right direction.

I'm using Dreamweaver on a Windows XP Pro platform,
and here are some relevant paths:


For example, here are where two of my websites reside:


Please note that I am NOT planning on hosting online
websites; I merely test my websites on my computer
before I publish them online to my ISP.

I glanced at a couple online tutorials and's instructions at

It appears to me that I want to set up a NAME-BASED
system.'s server configuration instructions have
apparently already been set up in the httpd.conf file:

#<VirtualHost *>
#    ServerAdmin
#    DocumentRoot /www/docs/
#    ServerName
#    ErrorLog logs/
#    CustomLog logs/

Below is my first guess towards applying this to two
of my websites, C:/sites/geobop/ and

#<VirtualHost *>
#    ServerAdmin [My e-mail address]
#    DocumentRoot C:/sites/geobop
#    ServerName geobop
#    ErrorLog logs/C:/sites/geobop-error_log
#    CustomLog logs/C:/sites/geobop-access_log common

#<VirtualHost *>
#    ServerAdmin [My e-mail address]
#    DocumentRoot C:/sites/geoworld
#    ServerName geoworld
#    ErrorLog logs/C:/sites/geoworld-error_log
#    CustomLog logs/C:/sites/geoworld-access_log

Am I on the right track? And am I also correct in
guessing that I don't need error logs or custom logs,
as long I'm only hosting websites on my own computer?
