Easily manage LAMP name based virtual hosts for your web development projects.

For more details you can visit my article at inchoo.net.

Features

  • Two modes of operation, add and remove project
  • Optionally creates MySQL user and database
  • Detects suphp module to create files with proper user and group ownership depending on configurable base document root

Usage

This script requires root access.
