edit  /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

look for ServerName in Core directives.  Change to something like:
ServerName myserver

Find VirtualHost section and locate a VirtualHost block.  It should be
commented out.  Copy the lines between

and paste them.   Remove # comment designator.  Change to:
ServerName www.test.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/testsite/html

In the above, change to the internal IP address of you Apache

Find the NameVirtualHost directive that preceds the VirtualHost directives.
Change to:

create a directory:  /var/www/testsite/html
put an index.html file in it.

go to /etc/init.d, type:
./httpd restart

Ensure your DNS records ( A, CNAME ) for test.com point to the static IP
address of your system.  If you do not have direct control of your DNS
records, use www.everydns.net to do so.

Read the Apache PDF documentation at www.apache.org concerning Virtual Hosts

Subject: [PHP] Apache - Virtual Name

How can I configure the apache, so that my local access is different from 
http://localhost. I want to access my local server through a virtual name 
(Example: http://www.test.com). I only want to change the name "localhost" 
for any other name.
I already possess a domain (Example: www.test.com) and I want to use this 
same name also in my local server in case I am not connected in the 
internet, only to simulate some cases of PHP.
