This is the PHP 7-based version of Magescotch.
This environment is based on the Vagrant base box Magemalt. To request new software to be added, please open an issue on the Magemalt repository.
Magescotch is designed to allow you to experiment with Magento (both Magento 1 and Magento 2). While sample installations of M1 and M2 are setup for you, the main purpose of the environment is to give you a place to work on your own projects.
Magescotch is built for general purpose use, but began with conferences and training sessions in mind. Because of how dodgy conference wifi can be, we include any tool we think you might need in the Magescotch base box. When in doubt, poke around /usr/local/src/ for lots of preloaded goodies. The Composer cache is also prewarmed with a number of Magento-related libraries. This makes Magescotch also especially useful on planes, trains and other situations with little-to-no bandwidth available.

Create an admin account
You can create a new admin account using a command like this:
bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user='admin2' --admin-password='!admin123!' --firstname.lastname@example.org' --admin-firstname='John' --admin-lastname='Doe'
Replace the username and password with something more secure and the email address with your own email address.
Add SSH keys to SSH agent so the Vagrant box can use them via SSH agent forwarding
This only works on Mac and Linux host machines, but on those OS's, on your local machine, run:
Make sure that your ~/.ssh/config file on your local machine includes these lines:
Host * ForwardAgent yes
Troubleshoot issues by making sure SSH is aware of your key, by running:
Add a new project to MageScotch
In a command prompt on your local machine:
cd <MageScotch Directory>/public/
git clone <your project> myproject
cp <wherever you have an SQL dump of your project's database) ./dump.sql
vagrant ssh (this command connects you to the MageScotch box via SSH)
mysql -u dev -p
(password is dev)
CREATE DATABASE myproject;
GRANT ALL on myproject.* TO 'dev'@'localhost';(CTRL-D to exit)
mysql -u dev -p myproject < dump.sql
Your project should now appear when you visit http://192.168.33.10/myproject/
If your project doesn't appear, try clearing any caches, etc.
You can make changes by editing the files in /public/myproject/ - any changes made there should take effect immediately.
Databases / MySQL
Username: dev Password: dev Databases: magento, magento2, dev
- Magento 1: http://192.168.33.10/magento1/admin_dev/ username: admin password: 64-solution-DISH-into-64
- Magento 2: http://192.168.33.10/magento2/admin_dev/ username: admin password: 64-solution-DISH-into-64
Magento 1 sites don't load
Magento 1 is not currently compatible with PHP 7.
If the error is a 500 error and in the Magento exception log you see this error: " PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Function name must be a string...", your project isn't compatible with PHP 7.
If that's the case, run 'vagrant ssh' to connect to MageScotch and cd to the directory your project is installed in and run the following commands:

modman init modman clone https://github.com/Inchoo/Inchoo_PHP7 magerun cache:flush magerun sys:setup:run

Basic Vagrant Commands
Start or resume your server
Pause your server
Delete your server
SSH into your server
- Hostname: localhost or 127.0.0.1
- Username: root
- Password: root

- Hostname: localhost or 127.0.0.1

Updating the Box
Although not necessary, if you want to check for updates, just type:
vagrant box outdated
It will tell you if you are running the latest version or not, of the box. If it says you aren't, simply run:
vagrant box update
Setting a Hostname
If you're like me, you prefer to develop at a domain name versus an IP address. If you want to get rid of the some-what ugly IP address, just add a record like the following example to your computer's host file.
Or if you want "www" to work as well, do:
192.168.33.10 whatever-i-want.local www.whatever-i-want.local
Technically you could also use a Vagrant Plugin like Vagrant Hostmanager to automatically update your host file when you run Vagrant Up. However, the purpose of Scotch Box is to have as little dependencies as possible so that it's always working when you run "vagrant up".
MageScotch Box is based on Scotch Box v2 - https://github.com/scotch-io/scotch-box
Learn more about Scotch Box v2:
Scotch Box is a preconfigured Vagrant Box with a full array of LAMP Stack features to get you up and running with Vagrant in no time.
A lot of PHP websites and applications don't require much server configuration or overhead at first. This box should have all your needs for doing basic development so you don't have to worry about configuring Vagrant and you can simply focus on your code.
No provisioning tools or setup is really even required with Scotch Box. Since everything is packaged into the box, running "vagrant" is super fast, you'll never have to worry about your environment breaking with updates, and you won't need Internet to code.
What and Why
Vagrant is an extremely powerful tool. With Chef or Puppet and Vagrant, you can configure any type of server environment you can think of. The possibilities are endless (especially with Docker in the picture now, too). Speaking candidly though, most the development I do doesn't really stray from a default LAMP stack, and when I have to configure a server, I really am always just setting up a boring typical LAMP stack anyways. All I really want is PHP 5.6 and a bunch of modules with zero hassle or overhead.
I used to use this seriously awesome Vagrant LAMP Stack that I even wrote about here. The problem with this is it broke a lot. It broke when Vagrant updated, it broke when Chef updated, and it broke when Berkshelf updated. On top of that, I always had problems getting it working on Windows. There are just too many points of failures for what it's purpose was for me - simply just developing locally.
So that's why I decided to build a Vagrant LAMP Box. The box is prepackaged and requires provisioning and no configuration. You simply boot it up and it just works. It's not for every project, but it sure will help you get straight to it with a lot of them.
Are you new to Vagrant? If your new to Vagrant, check out our getting started guide with Vagrant article, our Vagrant Share article, and our article on Larvel's Vagrant stack Homestead. If you follow the first tutorial, you can just learn the Vagrant commands but use the Scotch Box instead.
