Pawnee is a menubar utility designed to help you manage your local Apache installation.

Features are organised in panels:

Panel Description
PHP Detects installed PHP versions (with Homebrew) for easy switch
Virtual hosts View and edit configured virtual hosts
Modules Displays available and enabled Apache modules
Activity Shows server activity for easy debug

The application works with the /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf file.

  • When this file is updated, the server will restart automatically
  • When editing the file for the first time, a backup will be made (/private/etc/apache2/httpd.pawnee-backup.conf)
