Summary by ZFilipin (WMF)

Updated page with correct instructions.

I followed the instructions. However, when I try to edit a page visually I receive the following error

{"error":{"code":"apierror-visualeditor-docserver-http-error","info":"Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server: (curl error: 7) Couldn't connect to server","docref":"See http://localhost:8080/w/api.php for API usage. Subscribe to the mediawiki-api-announce mailing list at <> for notice of API deprecations and breaking changes."}}

How can I figure out which url is trying to be contacted?

This page is a draft. I'm pretty sure that you'll not get a working VE after following these steps.

@Physikerwelt Are you using Docker on a mac? If this is the case, you might want to add

$wgVirtualRestConfig['modules']['parsoid'] = [

'url' => 'http://host.docker.internal:8080' . $wgScriptPath . '/rest.php',


This seems to be working for me.

It worked for me too! Thanks!

I've tested it both on macos and ubuntu, and it's needed in both.
