To preview the website that's currently in my htdocs
folder, I type in http://localhost/geobop/index.php

Just to make sure I've got this right, does that make
my server name
"http://localhost/geobop/index.php" ?

To view a site in my C:/sites directory (where I want
all my websites to be), I type in

But after I get my virtual server set up, that will
change to http://localhost/geoworld/index.php, right?

Also, you wrote, "which must, in turn, be mapped to
your webserver through DNS or other means."

Is that something I have to do, or is automatically
mapped by Apache or something else?
