Gulp Watch / BrowserSync Proxy not using port 3000

Using WAMP and gulp-sass.

When I run gulp watch everything works as intended (console logs changes and sets up proxy).

But when the browser opens it redirects to http://dev/ooa and I still have to manually refresh to see the changes.

#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/> for detailed information.
# In particular, see 
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.  
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/access_log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache2" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/local/apache2/logs/access_log", whereas "/logs/access_log" 
# will be interpreted as '/logs/access_log'.
#
# NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes
# instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").
# If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which httpd.exe is located
# will be used by default.  It is recommended that you always supply
# an explicit drive letter in absolute paths to avoid confusion.
ServerSignature On
ServerTokens Full

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on the
# Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used.  If you wish to share the
# same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change at
# least PidFile.
#
ServerRoot "c:/wamp/bin/apache/apache2.4.9"

Define APACHE24 Apache2.4

#
# Mutex: Allows you to set the mutex mechanism and mutex file directory
# for individual mutexes, or change the global defaults
#
# Uncomment and change the directory if mutexes are file-based and the default
# mutex file directory is not on a local disk or is not appropriate for some
# other reason.
#
# Mutex default:logs

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to 
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.

Have you changed the config setting in manifest.json, specifically where it says:

  "config": {
    "devUrl": "http://example.dev"
  }
}

You may need to set “devUrl” to the URL of your server. In the documentation:

“To use BrowserSync during gulp watch you need to update devUrl at the bottom of assets/manifest.json to reflect your local development hostname.” https://roots.io/sage/docs/theme-development-and-building/

I’m not familiar with using Sage + WAMP but I am using WP + Sage inside a Vagrant VM (specifically Scotchbox) and everything including BrowserSync works great, with zero hassles. So it may be some weird incompatibility with BrowserSync & WAMP.

You might want to look into using a VM / Vagrant to do all the compiling work and serve up the files, as it is closer to a real server environment than WAMP is, so it’s less headaches overall. And [Vagrant Manager] (http://vagrantmanager.com/) makes it easy to run a Vagrant box on Windows.

Got scotch running, however it’s very slow to use. The slowness is the cause of the error below I think. It took about 30 seconds to change pages in the wordpress backend and during the wordpress install. I read that not enabling NFS can cause performance issues here: https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/synced-folders/nfs.html
However, it says there is no fix for windows in that article?

If I use sudo or --allow-root option or --allow-root I get the same error.

The EACCES error is a bit easier to fix. You most likely have some messed up permissions after running node / bower etc as sudo. First thing you need to do is blow away the node_modules folder and rebuild it.

Check out these instructions: Npm Debugging Guidelines (Failed npm install, bower install, or gulp build? Read this)

Specifically, read Austin’s comment too: Npm Debugging Guidelines (Failed npm install, bower install, or gulp build? Read this)

Generally speaking, you shouldn’t need to run anything as sudo in order to build Sage themes - if you do, then you need to figure out the reasons why your server demands it, and correct that accordingly. If you run npm or bower as sudo it will lead to tears.

I’m getting the same error on an Ubuntu machine.

The browser window opens with port 3000 but immediately redirects to no port (i.e. 80).

Any more ideas?

I’m experienciencing tha same issue on Ubuntu, but pretty sure is a wordpress-core routing related one.

I moved wordpress from root dev folder to project-name/public/wordpress folder and allow to wordpress core to manage the adress redirection.

I’m not really strong in networking; to keep using browsersync in dev, i managed to set site-adress at :3000 port straight in WP general settings… and it works… until someone suggest a better solution :grin:

Remember… using that way means ALL the http request are now routed to 3000 port, so you have to get browsersync up and running to have the website served.
