This is for a local website only; it is not for a website to be exposed to the internet. I am using Windows.

I am new to Apache. I am confused about the use of domain names for local websites. I tried a variety of things but then I managed to get a website working using http://localhost:81 as the address. The default website that Apache creates is of course at http://localhost (http://localhost:80).

I just want to know what possible problems there might be. This is not for a production website; it is just a personal website and/or a temporary website for demonstration purposes only.

I added the following to my httpd.conf:

Code:
Listen 81

.
.
.

<Directory "G:/Sam/Documents/Web Site">
    AllowOverride None
    Options None
    Require all granted
</Directory>

<VirtualHost *:81>
DocumentRoot "G:/Sam/Documents/Web Site"
</VirtualHost>


And that works. What could be a problem with that?

Require local is your friend.

Code:

Listen 81

<VirtualHost *:81>
    DocumentRoot "G:/Sam/Documents/Web Site"
    <Directory "G:/Sam/Documents/Web Site">
        AllowOverride None
        Options None
        Require local
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>
