Mamp virtual host configuration
My MAMP Pro demo expired, so i decided it was time to setup my MAMP installation just like i had my old apache configured. It required a couple of changes to my custom user.conf file but here is the result:
$ cat /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/jameswilson.conf
DocumentRoot /Users/jameswilson/Sites <Directory "/Users/jameswilson/Sites/"> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1:80 NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1:443 <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:80> VirtualDocumentRoot /Users/jameswilson/Sites/%-2+/public </VirtualHost> # VirtualDirectoryRoot with SSL instructions: # http://bit.ly/dEl8qC <IfModule mod_ssl.c> <VirtualHost *:443> VirtualDocumentRoot /Users/jameswilson/Sites/%-2+/public ErrorLog /Applications/MAMP/log/apache_error_log CustomLog /Applications/MAMP/log/apache_access_log combined SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile "/Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/ssl_crt/server.crt" SSLCertificateKeyFile "/Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/ssl_key/server.key" </VirtualHost> </IfModule>
I had previous configured the server.crt and server.key settings using another tutorial. And the above config file came out of a lot of sweat and tears configuring Mac OS X’s standard apache, for my desired custom config.
Now I am able to put projects in my Sites folder, and inside each project is a public/ folder where the webroot is located.
Example 1: Install drupal to:
Then access it via:
HTTPS is currently not working but I dont have time to futz around with it to fix it today.
