Need Help with Wordpress/Virtualhosts


I want to put together a machine for experimenting with wordpress. I want at least 2 sites to be hosted locally.

LAMP is already installed. One Wordpress is already set up and I can load the default twentyseventeen theme.

I want to access websites by entering serverip/website name. For example 192.168.1.14/site1

My directory structure is /var/www/site1.com/html
/var/www/site2.com/html

I understand the basic concept of virtualhost files and how to create them, but I don't know which fields needs to be populated. All of the guides seem to be set up for installs on VPS, not machines on a lan.

that's just a subfolder, so you don't even need to tell apache about it; you can just install wp1 to /site1 and wp 2 to /site2 etc.
you could, however, host instances on different ports, e.g.:
wp 1: 192.168.1.14:8000
wp 2: 192.168.1.14:8001
