I was testing around with my local apache installation in my VM and was wondering why the hell my #VHost config is ignored.

After trying around for half an hour I discovered I had written
<VirtualHost \*.:80>

with an extra dot after the asterisk and before the colon. Hard to spot. And apache config didn't tell me that anyhing was wrong. I tested with apachectl -S and wondered why the hell it did not print out my config.
<VirtualHost \*:80>

I finally managed to setup a #Wordpress #multisite with #Subdomains on my localhost #apache server. Yeah!
