Inside the conf folder, create a new file and name it vhost.conf
Add the below contents to vhost.conf and save it. Continue Reading…
… a question that raises in the mind of programmers developing applications in their local development environments.
This can be achieved by making the following modifications.
Step (i) Install the WAMP / XAMPP server in your windows machine. After this install you will be able to access sites created on the localhost with URL http://localhost
Step (ii) Download and extract the send mail application for Windows from http://glob.com.au/sendmail/. Remember the path where you have extracted sendmail. For e.g. c:\wamp\sendmail
Step (iii) Edit sendmail.ini within c:\wamp\sendmail. This ini file has enough documentation explaining how the configuration changes should happen on the file.
