Ability to use virtualHost name in server


Desired feature is to be able to start the server with a virtualhost name:

$ server start name="hotfix-sup-approval" hostname="hotfix-sup-approval.devbox.com" force=true

After taking a look at all the CFDISTRO files, all the ANT scripts are there to create virtual hosts for all the available containers, including scripts that edit the hosts file. I'll try to build something on my own and share it if I get anywhere near adding this feature, but I do think the pros should work on this.

I prefer the virtual host name hotfix-sup-approval.devbox.com over random port use Its more coldbox environment friendly.

Brad, I attached the output of the stack trace. This time I used the bin file from http://cfmlprojects.org/artifacts/com/ortussolutions/box.cli/1.0.0/ and prior to installing I deleted all box related files from my home directory.

Looks like you've got an old version of Java installed. "Unsupported major.minor version 51.0"
Make sure your machine has Java 7 installed and your environment variables are set to use it. It probably uses your JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME env variable.

Meant to reply long time ago. Updating my jdk to 1.7 worked. Thank you. Close this issue.
