Bounty: 50

I have following directory structure


I had installed vhost named as dev.local on ...workspacedev. As you can see I have created a gulpfile.js in my proj directory.

Now if I run gulp browser-sync command my browser window is open showing following url http://dev.local:3000/proj/. It perfectly opens my index.php page but if I do any modification in my files they are not monitored and are not injected into my page. So there is no auto reload of my page.

Here is my gulpfile.js

var gulp = require('gulp');
var bs = require('browser-sync').create(); // create a browser sync instance.

gulp.task('browser-sync', function() {
        open: 'external',
        host: 'dev.local',
        proxy: 'dev.local/proj'

gulp.task('watch', ['browser-sync'], function () {
    gulp.watch("*.html,*.php,css/*.css,js/*.js").on('change', bs.reload);

Here is the output of my terminal

gulp browser-sync
[12:14:12] Using gulpfile ~/Documents/workspace/dev/proj/gulpfile.js
[12:14:12] Starting 'browser-sync'...
[12:14:12] Finished 'browser-sync' after 15 ms
[BS] Proxying: http://dev.local
[BS] Access URLs:
       Local: http://localhost:3000/proj
    External: http://dev.local:3000/proj
          UI: http://localhost:3001
 UI External: http://dev.local:3001

I had already searched SO for various solutions but of no avail. Please help I am stuck.


I am using BrowserSync version 2.18.8 and gulp version 3.9.1
