Script to create apache2 virtual hosts
#!/bin/bash
#
# Display usage info
vhost-usage() {
cat <<"USAGE"
Usage: vhost [OPTIONS] <name>
-h|--help this screen
-pub to create the webhost root in ~/www/name/public/
-url to specify a local address, default is http://name.local
-rm to remove a previously created vhost, see examples
-d to specify the webroot directory location, default is in ~/www (NO TRAILING SLASH)
-email to specify the email of the administrator in the virtual host file
-l to list the current virtual hosts
IMPORTANT Notes:
1- You need git setup to grab the template file if you do not have it already.
2- You need to make sure you do not have a vhost called 'template' or that it is the one from this gist: https://gist.github.com/gistwebdev/5640113
3- Check your version of sed, you need to make sure -i works. GNU sed is suggested.
Examples:
vhost mysite this will create a new apache2 vhost named mysite with a webroot of ~/www/mysite/ reachable at http://mysite.local
vhost -pub mysite this will create a new apache2 vhost named mysite with a webroot of ~/www/mysite/public/ reachable at http://mysite.local
vhost -d ~/sites/mysite/myroot -url dev.mysite.dev mysite this will create a new apache2 vhost named mysite with a webroot of ~/sites/mysite/myroot reachable at http://dev.mysite.dev
vhost -rm mysite.local mysite this will remove the apache2 vhost named mysite and remove the mysite.local entry from the /etc/hosts file. Be sure to specify boths

vhost.sh bingo Creating /home/owaishanif/www/bingo directory Checking for the virtual host template file... Creating the new bingo virtual host file that has a webroot of: /home/owaishanif/www/bingo Adding bingo.local to the /etc/hosts file... ERROR: Site bingo does not exist! Virtual host bingo created with a webroot at /home/owaishanif/www/bingo reachable from http://bingo.local
according to this error it creates "bingo" file in sites-available it must be bingo.conf and
sudo a2ensite $name.conf

or is there any other solution ?
