Vagrant Ubuntu Webserver

These three files quickly set up my preferred environment for web development, using Vagrant an Virtual box. The webserver comprises of:

  • Ubuntu (18.04/Bionic Beaver)
  • Apache 2
  • PHP 7.2
  • MySQL

Lines 61 and 62 of Vagrantfile set the virtual machine up with 512MB RAM and 1 CPU, I have done this to match the AWS t2.micro machine I use for production, but you can change this to match your requirements if needed.

To Use

  • If not already installed on your machine, install Vagrant, VirtualBox and Vagrant Hostsupdater.
  • Clone this repository: git clone yourfoldername (Or copy the three files, "Vagrantfile", "" and "mysql_secure_installation.sql" to your project folder).
  • (Optional) Edit the desired IP address for your server on line 35 of Vagrantfile. - It is best to have a unique IP address for each time you create a new server.
  • Change the hostname for your server on line 36 of Vagrantfile. This is what you will type in your webbrowser to access the webserver.
  • Replace "YourDBPassword" with your chosen database password on line 1 of mysql_secure_installation.sql.
  • From your project folder in your terminal type vagrant up - this may take a while to execute the first time, as all the files will need ot be downloaded.
  • Navigate to http://your.hostname (or whatever you defined in line 36 of Vagrantfile), you should see the Apache default page.
  • Add your source code (or even install your CMS of choice) in to the "Content" folder, which is where Apache will serve from.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
