powwow

A zero configuration, zero dependency Apache helper for Mac OS X.

Create virtual hosts for developing locally in under a minute.

Installation

Just run sudo ./install.sh install. The script only needs sudo rights to append itself to the Apache configuration.
Maybe you also need to make the script executable first by executing chmod a+x {powwow.sh,install.sh}.

To remove powwow again, run sudo ~/Sites/powwow/install.sh uninstall.

Usage:

add <directory>    : Adds <directory> as virtual host http://<directory>.dev,
                     sets up configuration and host entry
                     Supply additional hostname, if desired hostname and directory differ
remove <hostname>  : Removes a powwow virtual host
list               : Lists all installed powwow virtual hosts
restart            : Restart Apache webserver

For adding/removing a virtual host and for restarting Apache, you need sudo privileges.

Examples:

  • sudo powwow add ~/Sites/my-website installs directory as powwow virtual host 'my-website', sets a host entry to http://my-website.dev and restarts Apache.

  • sudo powwow add ~/Sites/my-website my-hostname same as above, but vhost name becomes http://my-hostname.dev.

  • sudo powwow remove my-website removes virtual host 'my-website' and restarts Apache.
