It is assumed you have Virtual Box and Vagrant installed. If not, then grab the latest version of each at the links below:
Once Vagrant is installed, or if it already is, it's highly recommended that you install the following Vagrant plugins:
vagrant plugin install vagrant-hostsupdater
- Ubuntu Server v14.04.4 LTS (Trusty Tahr) 64bit
- Make sure curl, wget, unzip, zip, iptables, debconf-utils, and software-properties-common are installed
- Set vm timezone (configure in Vagrantfile)
- NOTE: Tested and working with Ubuntu v12.04, v14.04, v14.10, v16.04 (configurable via Vagrantfile)
- Nginx v1.11.5
- Set up to serve all static content and reverse-proxy cfm/cfc/jsp requests to Tomcat
- MariaDB v10.1.x or MySQL v5.7.x (defaults to MariaDB, configurable in Vagrantfile)
- lower_case_table_names = 1 (disables case sensitivity)
- bind-address set to 0.0.0.0 so database server can be accessed from the host machine directly (without ssh tunnel)
- Tomcat v7.0.52 with Java (OpenJDK) v1.8.0_91
- catalina.properties tweaks for improved performance
- Lucee v22.214.171.124 (dev)
- cfspreadsheet-lucee-5 pre-installed
- Many thanks to Andrew Kretzer for his work updating cfspreadsheet-lucee for Lucee 5 compatibility
- jsoup v1.9.2 included in Lucee server bundles directory
- Tweaks to Lucee via server admin
- Smart whitespace suppression
- Preserve single quotes option enabled for dataase queries
- Update provider set to Development Releases
- Default cache (ehcache) setup so cacheGet/cachePut/etc work out of the box
- cfspreadsheet-lucee-5 pre-installed
The first time you clone the repo and bring the box up, it may take several minutes. If it doesn't explicitly fail/quit, then it is still working (the Linux updates, on first run, can take a while).
git clone https://github.com/mikesprague/vagrant-lemtl.git cd vagrant-lemtl/vagrantroot && vagrant up
Once the Vagrant box finishes and is ready, you should see something like this in your terminal:
==> default: Vagrant-LEMTL-v2.0.0 ==> default: ==> default: =============================================================== ==> default: ==> default: http://www.vagrant-lemtl.local (192.168.50.25) ==> default: ==> default: Lucee Server/Web Context Administrators ==> default: ==> default: http://www.vagrant-lemtl.local/lucee/admin/server.cfm ==> default: http://www.vagrant-lemtl.local/lucee/admin/web.cfm ==> default: Password (for each admin): password ==> default: ==> default: ==> default: Database Server Connection Info for External Connections ==> default: from Host Machine ==> default: ==> default: Server: db.vagrant-lemtl.local ==> default: Port: 3306 ==> default: User: root ==> default: Password: password ==> default: ==> default: ===============================================================
Once you see that, you should be able to browse to http://www.vagrant-lemtl.local/ or http://192.168.50.25/ (it may take a few minutes the first time a page loads after bringing your box up, subsequent requests should be much faster).
On Windows (host machines) you should run your terminal as an Administrator; you will also need to make sure your Hosts file isn't set to read-only if you want to take advantage of the hostname functionality. Alternatively, simply use the IP address anywhere you would use the hostname (connecting to database server, etc).
Git Large File Storage (Git LFS) enabled via the .gitattributes file for .jar and .lco files by default. This should not cause any issues if you do not have Git LFS installed/enabled. If you don't have Git LFS installed locally (or enabled on your GitHub account), it should just ignore the attributes. If there are any problems, please report them in the issue tracker.
