Running Hoverfly as a webserver

.. seealso::

    Please carefully read through :ref:`webserver` alongside this tutorial to gain a high-level understanding of what we are about to cover.

Below is a complete example how to capture data with Hoverfly running as a proxy, and how to save it in a simulation file.

.. literalinclude::
    :language: bash
    :lines: 3-7

Now we can use Hoverfly as a webserver in Simulate mode.

.. literalinclude::
    :language: bash
    :lines: 9-12

Hoverfly returned a response to our request while running as a webserver, not as a proxy.

Notice that we issued a cURL command to http://localhost:8500/a/b instead of This is because when running as a webserver, Hoverfly strips the domain from the endpoint URL in the simulation.

This is explained in more detail in the :ref:`webserver` section.


Hoverfly starts in Simulate mode by default.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
