Tunnel My ...

Wordpress#

Wordpress is configured to run under a specific URL, usually http://localhost. This is excellent for local development but not for being on the internet.

Follow the instructions at https://wordpress.org/support/article/changing-the-site-url/ to set the URL of your wordpress installation.

tip

Free domains change after a period of time and are not recommended for Wordpress due to Wordpress's lengthy URL update procedure.

If you will primarily be developing Wordpress sites please consider a Custom Domain plan from https://admin.localhost.run. This will give your tunnel a stable domain name which you only need to configure once.

caution

If you want to use Wordpress with a free domain you can explore https://wordpress.org/plugins/relative-url/ and setting WP_HOME and WP_SITEURL to 'https://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], but please pay attention to the warnings on the relative-url plugin.

Favourite Web framework#

If you see requests going to localhost:{your locally running apps port} in your browsers dev tools when browsing your site through localhost.run check your framework for reverse proxy settings.
