    Port based virtual hosting locally/development environment


    I run a Ubuntu 6.06 server internally for testing and developing web sites prior to uploading to my server at a ISP (Ubuntu 5.10/ISPConfig). I run port based virtual hosting internally and have done so for a number of years.

    My server is not visible outside my network. I run a DHCP network. I'd gotten into the habit of using the port range 60 to 75 and rotate ports as I finish sites/project and move onto the next project.

    I'm just finding this a time consuming and messy way of doing things, so I was wondering if there is a better way of doing this?

    Can I run ISPConfig?

    Sorry for the long post, just wanted to be clear.

    You could use name-based vhosts, but then you'd need a DNS server in your LAN that resolves the FQDNs locally.
    ISPConfig doesn't support IP-based vhosts, just name-based vhosts.

    Either install ISPConfig, it will then do the configuration for you, or have a look here, if you want to do it manually:
