this is driving me around the bend. i'm i'm assuming it's a simple solution.
i've got XAMPP running a virtual host site on my PC (so i can test things with the site).
so, as it's a 'virtual host' i can access this site with something like "http://www.madeupname.com
" from my PC.
this bit all works perfectly fine.
the problem is, how to access this same virtual host site from inside VMWare?
i can access NON virtual host sites that XAMPP is running, i.e. i can access anything in the 'htdocs' folder of XAMPP when accessing it from within VMWare using http://192.168
i just don't seem to be able to figure out how to access the virtual hosts XAMPP is running - i thought i'd just be able to do something like "http://192.168.0.1/www.madeupname.com
can't find any explanation online but then i ain't got a clue if i'm trying to do something that's not possible - seems like a simple enough thing to expect to work to me though.
any help, please?
