    Help installing 2.2.2 on XAMPP outside of normal document root Link to this post

    Hi, I've been really impressed with what I have seen in SilverStripe and its user community and want to dig in a little deeper. To do that, I have a XAMPP 1.6.6.a running and would like to install SilverStripe *outside* of the normal document root (c:\xampp\ss) on my local machine in order to duplicate the production environment within our org. I have been trying to make changes to the httpd-vhosts.conf file to allow me to find the silverstripe site by using something like "ss.com" and localhost for everything else, but I can't get anything to work. I've added ss.com to my hosts file and that works, but any time that I make a change to the httpd-vhosts.conf file, XAMPP won't restart and errors out with a nondescript error. My conf file looks like this:

    NameVirtualHost *:80

    <VirtualHost *:80>
       ServerName ss.com
       DocumentRoot /xampp/ss

    <VirtualHost *:80>
       ServerName localhost
       DocumentRoot /xampp/htdocs

    Any ideas??? Am I way off base to try this?
