The developers website has been down for at least a couple of days and the download is inaccessible. Is this app dead?

I love this app. I can muck my way around *.conf files with the best of them, but Headdress really makes life easy for me.

Only one feature request: The ability to turn on/off the preview thumbnails (for speed if we have a lot of sites listed).

Headdress, will you marry me?

Good little utility takes the pain/chore out of configuring Apache on your local machine for development/testing. It does what it does very well. My only wish is that you could set up subdomains instead of using different ports. For example, instead of having a site listed at localhost:9000, and localhost:9001, I would rather set them up as site1.localhost and site2.localhost. I can do this manually with the Apache conf file, but I wish I could do it with headdress.

Seems to be an issue w/ 1.3.5. I've downloaded and installed, but the
version is listed at 1.3.4, even thought the .dmg is titled 1.3.5.
When it launches, it notifies me of the 1.3.5 version, and I approve
the install and relaunch. But upon relaunch, it is still version 1.3.4.

Nice little app. However, it would be nice to assign sites a subdomain too, in addition to moving them to a different port #. I know you can do this (thanks to this site: http://allforces.com/2005/08/23/wordpress-on-mac-subdomains/), and it's nicer than using different ports (which can get confusing after adding a few sites).

Even though the demo and default behavior use port numbers, it appears you can actually specify sub-domains in Advance Options (Server Name) when editing an entry. You will still need to manually edit your hosts file though.
