I am wanting to host 3 sites off of my local server and I was wondering if someone could help me setup my apache to communicate to all three sites. I would greatly appreciate any help with this.

*** UPDATE ***

These are my three sites.

Can someone please help me with my Virtual Host setup. I would greatly appreciate it.

There are many topics about this, but I shall help you none the less:

In your httpd.conf this is what you want for your VirtualHosts

# Use name-based virtual hosting.
NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost localhost:80>
ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot C:/apache2triad/htdocs
ErrorLog logs/error.log
CustomLog logs/access.log common

#display php errors
php_value register_globals 0
php_value error_reporting 2047
php_value display_errors 1

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName www.domain1.com
ServerAlias domain1.com
ServerAdmin webmaster@domain1.com
DocumentRoot C:/apache2triad/htdocs/www/domain1
ErrorLog logs/domain1.com-error.log
CustomLog logs/domain1.com-access.log common

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName www.domain2.com
ServerAlias domain2.com
ServerAdmin webmaster@domain2.com
DocumentRoot C:/apache2triad/htdocs/www/domain2
ErrorLog logs/domain2-error.log
CustomLog logs/domain2-access.log common

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName www.domain3.com
ServerAlias domain3.com
ServerAdmin webmaster@domain3.com
DocumentRoot C:/apache2triad/htdocs/www/domain3
ErrorLog logs/domain3-error.log
CustomLog logs/domain3-access.log common

Using, DirectoryIndex index.html, gave me either a file not found, or if I went to a sub-folder inside the domain it would give me just the folder structure, so I don't use that.

Also make sure you have your C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ect\host file have the three domains listed. Different routers give you different gateways, so you may have to change this:
Code: <tab> localhost <tab> www.domain1.com <tab> www.domain2.com <tab> www.domain3.com

That is assuming you have Windows of course, I don't know about Unix.

I believe that should get you going, assuming that you already have the domains pointed to your computers external IP, and router(if applicable) ports opened up.

If there are more problems post here, if not, let me know if it worked ok.
