I am running a web site on my Mac mini and would like to run a second independent site. I am running dynamic dns through and know that I can buy a second domain and direct it to my system. I can set up the files for the site on my system. I just need to know how to direct site requests to the second site instead of the first.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    I found this to be easy, but I am not sure it's a standard way of doing it: I use godaddy for domain names and forward those to specific ports on the server. I also have MAMP Pro installed on the mini that handles mysql and all that gorp. Then under Server / Web Server I've identified where all the websites are, and which port they belong to. Seems to work great! Cheers,

    Are you using Mac OS X Server?


    If so, this is trivial - just use to create a new Site ( -> Web -> + button).


    In the new site's configuration, enter the hostname that maps to this site.

    Rinse, repeat for as many sites you require. Apache will look to the hostname of the incoming request to work out which site configuration to use.
