Re: Alternate Ports and Virtual Directories

Well, first off, the ServerName directive shouldn't contain ":8888"

only came across these forums this morning via google while looking for
groups that may be able to help with a problem I am encountering.

This is a fairly long post, and I apologize for that but a lot of it is code
excerpts that are probably familiar to anyone who's worked with the
HTTPD.conf file for Apache.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the situation:

I've been using WAMP problem free for a couple of years now, across a couple
of different platforms and been very happy with it.

Recently, I've had to install some other apps that are listening to port 80
and ideally don't want to disable them whenever I'm doing web development,
so I'm experimenting with alternate ports.

I've gotten working correctly using the advice on this url:

however, I can't seem to get localhost working correctly; I'm getting a 404
if I call it as localhost and Forbidden if I call it as localhost:8888.

I have tried 2 different versions of the localhost directives, one
referencing port 8888 in the allow from, and one ignoring it. The one
referencing the port will not allow Apache to start so I'm going to assume
we can go without it. Here's the relevant section of my http.conf

ServerName localhost:8888

# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
DocumentRoot "c:/wamp/www/"

# Each directory to which Apache has access can be configured with respect
# to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that
# directory (and its subdirectories).
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
# features.
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all

# Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
# particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as
# you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
# below.

# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
<Directory "c:/wamp/www/">
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
# []
# for more information.
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
AllowOverride all

# Controls who can get stuff from this server.

# onlineoffline tag - don't remove
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from
# Allow from

Ideally, once I have localhost:8888 working correctly I need to get 2 more
Vhosts running. This is the essential part as I'm using Zend for development
and have all of my zend assets in two vhost directories.

The old configuration had the following entries in my hosts file:       ct.local       km.local

and Matching Vhosts in http.conf. However, I've removed the vhosts for now
as I don't want to muddy the waters on this part.

I believe the directives should look like:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "C:\Users\Public\Documents\CT"
ServerName ct.local

AllowOverride all

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
