I often need to use aliases for localhost (127.0.0.1) for my development work of websites, such that I can access them locally while routed via apaches virtual host concept.
In the past I have always amended the
/etc/hosts file and added my aliases there.
However, I have noticed after the install to Maverick that the
/etc/hosts file is overwritten in the process of upgrading.
How can I make my aliases permanent? Is there a better place to put them (I do not really want to run a full blown local DNS server, if I can avoid it).
