Virtual hosts

You need to work on multiple projects simultanously? Not a problem, servant supports virtual hosts using a straightforward rule: Each directory in the public/ folder represents the hostname of the project you want to work on. A single command creates the necessary configurations within the virtual machine, reloads the services and rewrites the /etc/hosts file on your Mac.

Access document root

You can reach the root directory of the web server via

Create new virtual hosts

  1. Change into the servant directory:

    cd ~/servant
  2. Create a new folder inside public/ named exactly the same as the hostname of your project:

    mkdir public/
  3. Run the provision command to create the server configurations and update your /etc/hosts file locally:

    vagrant provision

Delete virtual hosts

To remove a virtual host, simply delete the directory that represents the hostname of your project:

rm -r public/

Don't forget to reload servant:

vagrant provision


You can override the default Apache web server configuration for your virtual host in case you need a custom DocumentRoot or an additonal ServerAlias. To do that you need to place a JSON configuration file named servant.json in your project root folder. Checkout the example below:

  "document_root": "blog",
  "server_alias": ""
You can’t perform that action at this time.
