I have a magento2 folder on my localhost


I want to open a website like magento2.com instead of localhost/magento2.

How to achieve this.

i have read many tutorials but there are lots of issues.

Sometime Magento2.com opens the apache webpage, some times CSS issue on the front end.

please Help.


Step 1: copy default config file.

Run from command line:: sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/magento2.com.conf

    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/magento2
    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
    <Directory /var/www/html/magento2>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride All
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all
