How to set up a virtual host on WAMP server

Step 1: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#	127.0.0.1       localhost
#	::1             localhost

127.0.0.1       localhost
127.0.0.1       mysite.local

Step 2: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Open Apache’s httpd.conf
# Virtual hosts
#Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf => Uncomment this linge Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

Step 3: Goto H:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.4.4\conf\extra

Add the following


    DocumentRoot "H:/wamp/www"
    ServerName localhost




    DocumentRoot "H:/wamp/www/mysite/"
    ServerName mysite.local
    
		Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI Includes
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    

note the name of your project should match ‘mysite’ Step 1: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\host or vice versa
