2.10. Having Multiple Virtual Hosts

When developing several websites on the same machine, you will want to create several virtual hosts. For each virtual host you need to specify a domain name (like site1.mydomain.com). But if you currently don't have a domain name, you can specify a different port instead (see the example below).

# Listen directive tells Apache to listen requests on port 8080
Listen 8080

<VirtualHost *:8080>

To access the website, in your browser's navigation bar, enter "http://localhost:8080".

After editing the virtual host config file, you should restart Apache to apply changes.
