Howtos ยป Running Bolt using PHP's built-in web server

For development and testing purposes it is ofter useful to use PHP's built-in web server rather than setting up Apache or Nginx.

To run the built-in server, simply change to the site root directory and run:

php ./app/nut server:run

If you wish to specify a host name or different TCP port, simply add these after server:run, e.g.

php ./app/nut server:run --port=8080
