Ansible Vagrant profile for Phergie


Vagrant and VirtualBox (or some other VM provider) can be used to quickly build or rebuild virtual servers.

This Vagrant profile installs Phergie using the Ansible provisioner.

Getting Started

This README file is inside a folder that contains a Vagrantfile (hereafter this folder shall be called the [vagrant_root]), which tells Vagrant how to set up your virtual machine in VirtualBox.

To use the vagrant file, you will need to have done the following:

  1. Download and Install VirtualBox
  2. Download and Install Vagrant
  3. Install Ansible
  4. Open a shell prompt (Terminal app on a Mac) and cd into the folder containing the Vagrantfile
  5. Run the following command to install the necessary Ansible roles for this profile: $ ansible-galaxy install -r requirements.yml

Once all of that is done, you can simply type in vagrant up, and Vagrant will create a new VM, install the base box, and configure it.

Once the new VM is up and running (after vagrant up is complete and you're back at the command prompt), you can log into it via SSH if you'd like by typing in vagrant ssh.

Once logged in, you can run phergie using the command:

$ php ~/phergie/phergie.php

To run phergie in the background while logging output, use the command:

$ nohup php ~/phergie/phergie.php > ~/phergie/log 2>&1&
