I'm developing a local website with MAMP. I've configured a virtual host (hosts files, and apache vhosts).
MAMP Vhosts config
<VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "/route/to/folder" ServerName domain.com </VirtualHost>
It all works fine, but in Chrome sometimes the local website takes a few seconds to load, when it should load instantly. I've narrowed down the problem to Chrome as it works fine 100% of the time with Safari.
When this happens in Chrome, the status bar at the bottom says "resolving host". It would seem like it's waiting for a DNS server to respond... but isn't the
hosts file overriding any DNS calls?
Any ideas what might be happening?
