I am developing a site. For testing it locally, I installed Apache.
I have mapped my domain name (say www.example.com) in the C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc directory to 127.0.0.1, so that I can perform testing locally.
There are site sub-domains for which I obviously will have to use the hostname & therefore perform a host mapping on the local host. Now I want to map the sub-domains to sub-directories of the root localhost folder (like we do for A or CNAME records).
Can I do that, becuase with this appraoch I can test my site completely locally, and then upload it without any changes to the link destinations?
