So I set up Laragon to use Auto create virtual hosts and created a new site. The new site shows up as a vhost in drivers/etc/vhosts and in httpd-vhosts.conf, however when I hit the URL for the vhost in my browser, i.e. mysite.dev, it redirects to an IP which doesn't mean much to me and the webpage that is shown to me for this IP is the root of Laragon which shows index.php at the root folder which spits out phpinfo(). I can however access the site using the standard URL: localhost/mysite/public/.
I am using Laragon at work and we have a proxy here, is that an issue?
Any ideas on what is happening here and how to remedy the issue?
