WordPress on Nginx, HHVM, and MariaDB

This is a bare-bones Vagrant framework template for a high-performance website hosted on Nginx, HHVM, and MariaDB.

The author uses this to manage a development environment for his blog: Keita's Blog.

Getting Started

  1. Ansible

  2. VirtualBox

  3. Vagrant (version 1.5 or higher is required)

  4. The vagrant-hostsupdater plugin

    • $ vagrant plugin install vagrant-hostsupdater
  5. Copy the configuration file.

    • $ cp config.rb.example config.rb
  6. The configuration file included is adequate as a demonstration, but you probably want to adjust some variables.

  7. $ vagrant up

How To Use

  1. Fork the repository.

  2. Put your theme files in theme/.

    • theme/ is automatically synced with /wp-content/themes/{theme_name}, where {theme_name} is the value you configured in config.rb
  3. Put your plugins in plugins/.

    • plugins/ is automatically synced with /wp-content/plugins/.
  4. Commit your changes and distribute the repository with your co-workers. Please note that this is a template -- if you want to contribute or fix bugs in the template, please make sure that theme/ and plugins/ is empty.


Import data from a SQL dump file.

Put your SQL dump file in initial_data.sql, and set config.load_sql values accordingly in config.rb. Please note that you probably should exclude the wp_users and wp_usermeta tables from the export.

Planned Features

  • More WordPress installation options. Eg: Language, version, etc.
  • Auto-install plugins.
  • Import wp-content/uploads data from ZIP / gzip file.
  • Import data from a WXR (WordPress Export File).
  • Auto-deploy script.
