I wanted to emulate an Apache Virtual Host setup without setting up Apache. So I wrote a PHP script to do it.
This script is not production ready, and I'm not quite sure it should be used in production:
- There may be security holes that can expose your file system
- Apache is much better at this than a PHP script
- There may be unexpected side effects in other PHP scripts
- It's unconfigurable
Why use it
You want to automagically setup a virtual host on a box to see what happens, and then add the Apache config later.
