I'm struggling for half day just to setup virtual host in MAMP.

/Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
DocumentRoot "/path/to/project"
ServerName www-yourproject.com
<Directory "/path/to/project">
Options All
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

and for the file /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/httpd.conf

Change from

1
2
# Virtual hosts
#Include /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

to

1
2
# Virtual hosts
Include /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

to uncomment the httpd-vhosts.conf

In /etc/hosts, add a line below

1
127.0.0.1	www-yourproject.com

I've done all these setting, but the MAMP still not able to start.

At the end, I figured out that the error was occurred in

1

<Directory "/path/to/project">
Options All
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
allow from all
</Directory>

this portion. It look correct and no mistake at all.

After struggling for half day, I re-type that portion of code, finally it works.

Damnnnn, it was those special characters error which we cannot see.

May be I'm too lucky to meet such a situation :)
