In this post, I will explain how to create apache virtual host.
Virtual host is apache feature to allow us to make our website with it own domain in our computer . So we can access our website through “real” url. yes !!
so , we will make a virtual host for www.yourname.com domain. you can use .org – .com – .net …etc
mmmmm…… next steps
1 // open your terminal .. and return 🙂
If you installing lampp in /opt you need, you must be root to edit /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf file. ok
2 // Use
sudo gedit /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf
3 // And add this line in the last file:
save and close ok……
4 // now..
Open your text editor
And add these lines
Save this file as extra-httpd.conf in /home/username/website, as we define in httpd.conf file. ok
5 // add host :
Then, we must add the IP address we use above to /etc/hosts file.
add : ip > 127.0.2.1 and domain http://www.yourname.com
6 // if you have ubuntu
Go to System >> Administration >> Network.
Change to the tab to Hosts, and click Add, enter the IP address and the server name.
1 // The commands in this HOWTO must be entered in the terminal:
Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
2 // Download XAMPP to your Home :
3 // And extract the files :
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.tar.gz -C /opt
4 // Create a XAMPP start menu entry:
5 // Paste the following into the open file ” just for new version” :
Name=XAMPP Control Panel
Name[en_CA]=XAMPP Control Panel
Save and close the file.
7 // Publish:
XAMPP uses /opt/lampp/htdocs as the root web directory, but you can publish pages in your home directory this way.
sudo ln -s ~/public_html /opt/lampp/htdocs/$USER
Now any files and folders you place in ~/public_html will be
published to your personal webserver.
8 // Start XAMPP via the terminal:
sudo ./lampp start
9 // Stop XAMPP (if necessary):
sudo ./lampp stop
10 // OrVia the XAMPP Control Panel:Applications -> Other -> XAMPP Control Panel
11 // Now Security:
- 1. The MySQL root user has a blank password.
2. MySQL is accessible via your local network.
3. ProFTPD has user “nobody” with password “lampp”.
4. PhpMyAdmin is accessible via the local network.
5. Examples are accessible via the local network.
6. MySQL and Apache running under the same user “nobody”.
