Hello, I always get 500 configuration error every time I try to put the Virtual Host into my .httaccess. I’m trying to achieve subdomains on my local machine.
Here is the code that I’m trying to work with. I’ve got it from http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?394472-Setting-up-Subdomains-on-Localhost-Apache
I keep getting 500 configuration error even after this.
Yup. I’ve tried both. I keep getting the same 500 error.
I don’t know why I missed that the first time. I guess I wasn’t expecting it.
I believe that VirtualHost directives may only be placed inside server configuration files, not inside per directory htaccess files.
Ok thanks. I got it to work. I had to use my server configuration in my Apache folder. Thanks a lot. I thought it was an .htaccess command.
Creating a VirtualHost on a test server (yes, a subdomain is another VirtualHost), you need to edit TWO files: httpd-vhosts.conf and hosts (no extension).
CD picked up the port which is required (I prefer to specify 127.0.0.1:80) but both files are well commented. Copy an entry and edit it for your VirtualHost then save.
WinDoze protects a number of directories so (1) don’t install Apache in Program Files.
The hosts file exists in C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc as hosts. Open a text editor (RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR) then open the hosts file, edit, and save. If you don’t do this as “Administrator,” WinDoze will NOT save your edits.
