Hi there.


I have wamp installed on my PC.

I use this to host my own website as I don't need to host it on a secure server.

To access my site I use my static IP.

I saw this online and thought it would be good to be able to have different website on my wamp.

Can anyone tell me how to differentiate one from the other when typing the url?

Several layers to this question.

1 - Your DNS records for two domains both point at your static IP (e.g. A records for foo.com and bar.com both point at your static IP )

2 - your firewall is open to point inbound traffic from port 80 and 443 at your pc ports 80 and 443

3 - WAMP - Add entries to httpd-vhosts.conf   (  \xampp2\apache\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf )



<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@foo.com
    DocumentRoot "C:\xampp2\htdocs\foo"
    ServerName foo.com
     <Directory "C:\xampp2\htdocs\foo.com">
        Allow from all
        Require all granted
        Options Indexes
    ErrorLog "logs\tfoo.com-error.log"
    CustomLog "logs\foo.com-access.log" common

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@bar.com
    DocumentRoot "C:\xampp2\htdocs\bar"
    ServerName bar.com
     <Directory "C:\xampp2\htdocs\bar.com">
        Allow from all
        Require all granted
        Options Indexes
    ErrorLog "logs\bar.com-error.log"
    CustomLog "logs\bar.com-access.log" common


you might also need to alter xampp\apache\conf


# Virtual hosts
#Include "conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf"


to # Virtual hosts
Include "conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf"


Yes - examples here show xampp - but work for wamp as well. Adjust folder and drive names as required.
