Hey Jianjun,

Go for it! I enjoyed the stars a lot, thank you. 

vhosts are not essential. If you meant something like mandatory or obligatory the answer remains: no, its not.

A cite from your linked page: 

"(Optional) Configure a VirtualHost"Maybe I got you completly wrong, if so, we should define the term essentialism pragmatically blunk.gif Emoticon Cheerio Chris

Hello Jianjun,

While 'virtual host' is not required to use eZ Publish it is strongly recommended.

We at BC almost always use 'virtual host' when working with eZ Publish.

In the end a virtualhost should not be needed, just as in eZPublish 4.

As Heath says, having a vhost is always a good idea for all usecases except developer's computers.

As for status of supporting non-vhost mode, there are currently a couple of bugs open iirc: one with the REST API and one with the setup wizard

You can still use a virtual host even when hosting / working on a site using windows7. Apache and Windows Host file used together support it!
