Simple question about vHost in Apache (seriously, it is driving me crazy)

Posted January 8, 2017 2.1k views

Hi all,

I need your help guys to solve this vhost issue that is driving me crazy:

I have 2 domains registered on GoDaddy with an A (host) record pointing to a Windows Server R2 2012 that has a XAMPP installed and running without issues (checked external connectivity with a phpinfo() and it is working OK).

I need to create 2 wordpress sites and I want to host them on the same XAMPP server. For that reason I have configured the apache in this way: *check THIS LINK *

As you can see in the files, I have just make changes on httpd-vhosts.conf in order to create 2 vhosts:

1) C:\xampp\htdocs\claudiasalvay (Wordpress 1)
2) C:\xampp\htdocs\ieasalvay (Wordpress 2)

What is the issue????: Well, since claudiasalvay folder is first, no matter if I go to or, it is always going to redirect me to C:\xampp\htdocs\claudiasalvay.

Question: do I need to setup something else besides the vhost configuration?

Thanks in advance!

  • Note that if I rename the folder “C:\xampp\htdocs\claudiasalvay” to “C:\xampp\htdocs\claudia_salvay” and I go to, it shows a “Error 404 - - Apache/2.4.23 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.2h PHP/7.0.13”
