# Add Virtualhosts Tool PHP Script to create Apache virtual hosts (VHost) using the command line. #### Usage: > sudo path_to/addhost.php IP DOMAIN PATH_TO_PROJECT_FOLDER [--htaccess] [--composer] [--errorlog] or > sudo path_to/addhost.php IP DOMAIN --removehost or > sudo path_to/addhost.php IP DOMAIN --checkhost #### Example: > sudo path_to/addhost.php dev.localdomain /home/user/project #### How does this work? First addhost verifies if the project source folder exists, if not it is created. After that addhost opens the /etc/hosts file and appends the IP and DOMAIN. Finally the virtual host config file is creates in the apache enabled sites folder. #### I want to configure something. How I do? * With --htaccess option automatically creates the .htaccess in your public folder. * With --composer addhost downloads composer.phar file and creates a project composer.json. * With --errorlog provides you with a virtualhost's error log file. #### I need to use proxy, does this works? Yeah! This package now is preparet to support proxy. You need to edit the conf file and define two constants. ###### EXAMPLE: PROXY_HOST: Here you should write the IP or proxy host name and port number separated by ':'. Example: define('PROXY_HOST',''); PROXY_USER: Here you should write the proxy user and password separated by ':'. Example: define('PROXY_USER','evaldobarbosa:myproxypassword'); #### Can Addhost remove old VHosts? Yes! See below for the syntax to remove old hosts. > sudo path_to/addhost.php dev.localdomain --removehost #### Finally... Restart apache. Article (brazilian portuguese) --- > - > iMasters -
