App on Mac shows localhost


#1

Hi there. I’ve installed the browserstack app on my highSierra, but if I start the app or choose one of its menus out of the mac menu bar my browser starts and opens a localhost-address with an index of my local webservers root.
What’s wrong?

@jwssnr This is how the browser is supposed to work. It should open a page to localhost:8888 .


#3

Okay. Am I able to switch the port? Cause 8888 is the port of my local Webserver.

I don’t think there is an option to change port in the mac app. Try shutting down your local webserver and running the app. That should work for you.


#5

That works of course but isn’t a solution, cause i’d like to use both things parallel.


#6

What about changing the port on your webserver? The mac app does not expose changing the port as a configuration option. There is an open issue for this here: https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack-browser/issues/978

Good idea. But I have external dependencies on this port on some of my webprojects and don’t want to change each projekt.
