Using

wp server [--host=<host>] [--port=<port>] [--docroot=<path>] [--config=<file>]

Uses php -S to launch a web server serving the WordPress webroot. http://php.net/manual/en/features.commandline.webserver.php

Importantly, PHP's built-in web server doesn't support .htaccess files. If this is a requirement, please use a more advanced web server.

[--port=<port>]

	---
	default: 8080
	---

[--docroot=<path>]
	The path to use as the document root. If the path global parameter is
	set, the default value is it.

[--config=<file>]
	Configure the server with a specific .ini file.
