Virtualhost Manage Script

Bash Script to allow create or delete apache/nginx virtual hosts on Ubuntu on a quick way.

Installation

  1. Download the script
  2. Apply permission to execute:
$ chmod +x /path/to/virtualhost.sh
  1. Optional: if you want to use the script globally, then you need to copy the file to your /usr/local/bin directory, is better if you copy it without the .sh extension:
$ sudo cp /path/to/virtualhost.sh /usr/local/bin/virtualhost

For Global Shortcut

$ cd /usr/local/bin
$ wget -O virtualhost https://raw.githubusercontent.com/RoverWire/virtualhost/master/virtualhost.sh
$ chmod +x virtualhost
$ wget -O virtualhost-nginx https://raw.githubusercontent.com/RoverWire/virtualhost/master/virtualhost-nginx.sh
$ chmod +x virtualhost-nginx

Usage

Basic command line syntax:

$ sudo sh /path/to/virtualhost.sh [create | delete] [domain] [optional host_dir]

With script installed on /usr/local/bin

$ sudo virtualhost [create | delete] [domain] [optional host_dir]

Examples

to create a new virtual host:

$ sudo virtualhost create mysite.dev

to create a new virtual host with custom directory name:

$ sudo virtualhost create anothersite.dev my_dir

to delete a virtual host

$ sudo virtualhost delete mysite.dev

to delete a virtual host with custom directory name:

$ sudo virtualhost delete anothersite.dev my_dir

Localization

$ sudo cp /path/to/locale/<language>/virtualhost.mo /usr/share/locale/<language>/LC_MESSAGES/

For NGINX:

$ sudo cp /path/to/locale/<language>/virtualhost-nginx.mo /usr/share/locale/<language>/LC_MESSAGES/
