VirtualHostX 8.7.8


VirtualHostX is the easiest way to host and share multiple websites on your Mac. It’s the perfect solution for web designers working on more than one project at a time. With VirtualHostX you can easily create and manage unlimited Apache websites with just a few clicks.

What's New Version 8.7.8

Lots of good fixes in this update.
  • Clicking the VirtualHostX icon in the Dock, or activating the app with Spotlight or another launcher app like Alfred, re-opens the Main Window.
  • Added a "real" Close button to the Welcome and About windows. This lets you dismiss them with ⌘W. Previously, you had to click the little close button in the corner, which was annoying.
  • Added better looking and more descriptive icons to the Welcome Window.
  • You can now run the Welcome Window steps in any order - even if the app detects a helper app is already installed.
  • The app is smarter about detecting which port the web server is running on.
  • The VirtualBox and Vagrant installers are now downloaded from our own CDN instead of Amazon S3. This should speed up the download times.
  • When you choose the "Update Box..." command, VirtualHostX will ask if you also want to rebuild your virtual machine to pick up the new changes.
  • When picking a Local Path or Web Root directory, we validate their paths to make sure they're valid. For example, this prevents you from picking a Web Root that isn't contained somewhere inside your Local Path.
  • If you cancel an Administrator password prompt, we now abort all subsequent actions
