Subject Re: [users@httpd] virtualhost on localhost with .htaccess

That looks about right. The only reason (that I can think of) for using
.htaccess files is if you want to devolve control of a virtualhost to the
person who has write access to the documentroot (where you'd normally store
the .htaccess file, thought they can also be used in subdirectories as
well). This requires a degree of trust between you (the server owner) and
the owner of the virtualhost, depending on which powers you give away.

I run apache under my Windows XP, and have two or three virtualhosts, but
they all belong to me, so I don't bother with .htaccess - but if you run
into problems, I can tinker with my own system to help work out what you
need to do. I'm somewhat familiar with htaccess from my
www.swiftys.org.uksite, as that is hosted for me, and I'm obliged to
configure it using
.htaccess

Incidentally, my main reason for using VirtualHosts is to intercept people
who send requests to my IP address (81.2.123.82) rather than the hostname (
swiftys.org.uk). Requests to the IP *address* will go to the default
VirtualHost, and that blocks all accesses.
