Apache Vhosts (see ubuntuusers.de):

ln -s /source/file/folder linkname

Enable mod_rewrite in php:

sudo a2enmod rewrite
Allow access to phpMyAdmin only in local network:

For this you need to edit the following file in the following way.

sudo node /etc/phpmyadmin/apache2.conf
<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin>
    # Add the following 3 lines
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from All
    Allow from ::1
    # Don't change anything from this point

Do the same for all other virtual hosts that you want to access only from local network.

Restart Apache2:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
# OR
service apache2 restart


Debuging and Error cases


tail -f  /var/log/apache2/error.log

Mod rewrite doesn’t work

Use the following option in your virtual host configuration.
