PHPell is an open source Vagrant VM configuration with bash(sh) provision for PHP development.

It was inspired by PuPHPet and Phansible.

PHPell includes:

  • Vagrant VM with Ubuntu 16.04 and bash(shell) provision.
  • Oracle Java 8 (6, 7);
  • PHP 5.6 (7.0, 7.1) with:
    • Apache 2.4 + php_mod,
    • Nginx stable (development) + Apache 2.4 + php_mod,
    • Nginx stable (development) + PHP-FPM;
  • MySQL 5.6 (5.5);
  • MariaDB 10.1 (10.0);
  • PostgreSQL 9.6 (9.4, 9.5);
  • Memcached (+ Memcache/Memcached PHP extensions);


  1. Edit configuration in /Vagrantfile and /

  2. Install Vagrant VM from console:

cd /path/to/your/phpell
vagrant up


Run Vagrant VM from console:

cd /path/to/your/phpell
vagrant ssh


In the VM you can use helpers for virtual hosts and databases management:

  1. Helper create-host create new host and new user (has name as new host) and create-web-user create only new user:

    sudo create-host --host=example.local --password=password_for_example
    sudo create-web-user --user=example.local --password=password_for_example
  2. Helper enable-host enable host:

    sudo enable-host --host=example.local
  3. Helper disable-host disable host:

    sudo disable-host --host=example.local
  4. Helper create-mysql-db create new empty MySQL DB with granted user:

    create-mysql-db --database=example_db --user=example.local --password=password_for_example --root=root_password_for_example
    mysql -u example.local -ppassword_for_example -D example_db
  5. Helper backup-mysql-db zip and backup MySQL DB to /var/backups/example.local directory:

    backup-mysql-db --database=example_db --user=example.local --password=password_for_example
  6. Helper create-postgres-db create new empty Postgres DB with granted user:

    sudo create-postgres-db --database=example_db --user=example.local --password=password_for_example
    sudo -u example.local psql -U example.local -d example_db
  7. Helper backup-postgres-db zip and backup PostgreSQL DB to /var/backups/example.local directory:

    sudo -u example.local backup-postgres-db --database=example_db --user=example.local
