I have MAMP Pro Installed. I'm well aware with the advanced features of MAMP Pro I can change to different types of Hosts, but I wanted to know why my previous method would not work within mavericks. This was my usual working method in 10.8, but now with 10.9 it's a headache.
The previous method would:
write a custom address with the host address:
"#Virtual Hosts" 127.0.0.1 nameofsite.local
/Applications/MAMP/conf/apacheand open the
httpd.conffile, scroll to the bottom and then add
NameVirtualHost * <VirtualHost *> DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs" ServerName localhost </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *> DocumentRoot "/Users/Klimt/Sites/siteoffolder" ServerName clientA.local </VirtualHost>
make sure the ports is set to 80, 443, 3306.
reset MAMP PRO and then usually type in the URL address and it's gold from there.
