Wamp 3.2.4 - Virtual hosts not working for Project links
Posted by: giodoc (---.skybroadband.com)

Hi I installed 3.2.4 and added virtual hosts for each project. When I click on the link.. for some it comes back to the localhost page. For others it says page not found.

I have seen the solutions that allow to add localhost in the URL but there is no option in index.php for that.. Or on the right click menu either.

Any help would be great!

Hi,

What is the contents of the files:
- wamp64\bin\apache\apache2.4.xx\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf
- C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

What is the result of:
- Right-Click -> Tools -> Show VirtualHost examined by Apache

> I have seen the solutions that allow to add localhost in the URL
NO. Very old solution totally obsolete and unsupported.

Thanks for the quick response Otomatic.. Firstly there are a few different versions of apache installed. I updated to 2.4.6 I think these are the contents:


Content deleted by Otomatic.
It is the content of the httpd-vhosts.conf file that is requested.

-------------------------------------------------------
VirtualHost configuration:

Default server: localhost
Virtual Host: localhost
Virtual Host: bronco
Virtual Host: rzf
Virtual Host: xxxxx
Virtual Host: xxxxlwordpress
*** WARNING: Apache VirtualHost 'bronco'
*** is not defined in C:/Windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file

*** WARNING: Apache VirtualHost 'rzf'
*** is not defined in C:/Windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file




The hosts file:

--------------------------------------------------------------
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost

127.0.0.1 xxxx - These sites I setup recently with as instructed in the docs as virtual host - They end up on the localhost page

127.0.0.1 xxxwordpress
::1 xxxxwordpress

Hi,

It is the content of httpd-vhosts.conf that is requested, not httpd.conf which has no reason to have been modified.

Hi,

Your hosts file must have as content :
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 bronco
127.0.0.1 rzf
127.0.0.1 xxxxx
127.0.0.1 georgenischalwordpress

::1 localhost
::1 bronco
::1 rzf
::1 xxxxx
::1 georgenischalwordpress

And you will access each VilrtualHost through :
Left-Click -> Your VirtualHost -> servername
or
Wampserver home page, column Your VirtualHost, click on ServerName

OK Thanks!.. Really appreciate you taking the time to help! - will try that

Those entries in the original host file were created by wampserver 3.2.4.. I didn't add them, as an FYI.. Perhaps someone can look into why they were created that way, and how to fix that..

Just tried that.. Still doesn't work.. Now all the links resolve to the wampserver "localhost" page..

Hi,

Because hosts file is modified you have to restart Windows then Wampserver.

It works by :
Left-Click -> Your VirtualHost -> bronco or other ServerName.

Hi Thanks.

The problem was, I had multiple versions of apache host, PHP and MySQL servers installed. The wamp server was picking up a previous apache version, and a previous PHP. So I right clicked on the wamp icon, went to tools and deleted unused versions. And then selected reinstall all services.. And bam! - It's all working now.

Thanks so much for your help!
