create virtual host in Ubantu

create virtual host

Localhost name will be : api.local.btv
file's path : /var/www/html/projectfolder/api/web

Step 1 :
create conf file with below command
sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/api.local.btv.conf

Step 2 : paste below code and save and exit

<VirtualHost *:80>
	# The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
	# the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
	# redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
	# specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
	# match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
	# value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
	# However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.

	ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
	DocumentRoot /var/www/html/projectfolder/api/web 
        ServerName  api.local.btv
        ServerAlias api.local.btv

	# Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
	# error, crit, alert, emerg.
	# It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
	# modules, e.g.

	ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
	CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

	# For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
	# enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
	# include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
	# following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
	# after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
	#Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf

Step 3 : sudo a2ensite api.local.btv.conf
Step 4 : sudo service apache2 restart.

Step 5: Enter one entry into /etc/hosts file as below       api.local.btv

And it’s done. TADA.
