my-lamp makes it easy to for teams of one or more to develop simple LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) applications without having to spend unnecessary time on configuration.

my-lamp provisions the base server configuration and LAMP stack, and also looks for a developer-specific local.yml file for specifying what folders should be forwarded to the VM and specifying additional MySQL databases and users. This allows your development team to use a common virtual machine, but allows developers to work with different projects and different paths on the host machine without hard-coding these in version control.


my-lamp is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and uses Vagrant to manage the VM and Ansible to provision the LAMP stack.

You will need to have the following installed before using my-lamp:


To download my-lamp, first clone the repository, either using your favorite Git client or via the terminal:

git clone

This will create a "my-lamp" folder in the current directory. This contains the configuration for building and provisioning your VM.

To initialize and provision the development virtual machine, run vagrant up in the terminal from this directory:

cd my-lamp
vagrant up

By default, this configuration forwards the web server to listen on port 8080. Content in the DocumentRoot (/var/www/html/) on the VM will be viewable at http://localhost:8080 in your local browser.

To specify which folders on the local machine should be forwarded to the web server on the virtual machine, copy local.yml.example to local.yml and edit as necessary.

If you make any changes to local.yml while the box is up, you will need to run vagrant reload --provision. If you only change the forwarded folders, you can save some time by running vagrant reload only.

If you need to make any changes or additions to the base configuration (e.g., if you need to install additional PHP extensions) you'll want to fork this repository and make your own changes.
