2.1.0 release post


  • Add cosmetic improvements to provisioning. This cleans up quite a bit of the junk that displayed on many lines when it should have displayed on one. See #1247.
  • Update ack-grep to 2.16. See #1148.
  • Dashboard (http://vvv.test) links now open in new tabs. See #1168.
  • Speed up checking for vvv-hosts files in Vagrantfile. See #1182.
  • Pass more configuration data to the VirtualBox VM on boot. See #1197.
  • Link to varyingvagrantvagrants.org's Add New Site in the http://vvv.test dashboard. See #1220.
  • Build the VirtualBox VM name from the Vagrant directory and path hash. See #1236.
  • PHPCS is now installed via Composer. See #922.
  • VVV now uses .test instead of .dev for new installs and the dashboard. See #583.
  • Added the VIP minimum coding standards to PHPCS. See #1279.


  • Fix a wrong path for phpcs and phpcbf executables. See #1200.
  • Force Composer to use the scripts directory instead of bin. See #1202.
  • Fix bug installing rvm (which broke MailCatcher). See #1235.
  • Add phpcodesniffer-standard to PHPCS's composer.json. See #1239.
  • Ignore provision generated PHPCS files in Git. See #1276.


Many updates to VVV's documentation were made between the release of 2.0.0 and now. As of 2.1.0, the process to contributing to documentation has changed to use the varyingvagrantvagrants.org repository. This allows the workflow for shipping documentation changes to proceed separately from shipping VVV releases.

VVV 2.0.0 introduces breaking changes in how files are organized and introduces an entirely new method of configuration.

A full vagrant destroy and vagrant up are recommended for best results. Running vagrant destroy will remove your virtual machine entirely and all data stored on the VM will be lost. Please be sure to backup your databases and any files stored in the VM. Files on your local file system will remain, but will still benefit (as always) from a backup.

It is possible to make the from VVV 1.4.x to 2.0.0 without a vagrant destroy, but the process will involve restructuring several things. Primarily, default project directories are now expected to contain a public_html/ directory. This requires not only file changes, but new Nginx configurations. If you need help troubleshooting, don't hesitate to open a new issue.

Please see the migration documentation for tips on how to manage this process.

The decision to include breaking changes in a release is not made lightly. The new ability to configure your installation of VVV with a vvv-custom.yml file will make VVV entirely more flexible and maintainable than it has ever been. Please see the release blog post and documentation for more details.

Features & Enhancements

  • Introduce a YAML configuration for VVV. It is now possible to customize your configuration of VVV with a vvv-custom.yml file that defines which projects, hosts, and utilities are provisioned. See #980.
  • Introduce a new VVV Utilities repository. This works with the new YAML configuration to provide the ability to customize what utilities are provisioned with VVV. See #1021.
  • Introduce a new VVV Custom Site Template repository. This can be used in vvv-custom.yml to quickly add new sites to VVV.
  • Introduce a new VVV WordPress Develop repository. This is used in the default vvv-config.yml and can be used in (or excluded from) custom configurations.
  • Introduce a new VVV WordPress Default repository. This is used in the default vvv-config.yml and can be used in (or excluded from) custom configurations.
  • Introduce a new VVV WordPress Trunk repository. This can be used in custom configurations if you'd like a checkout of WordPress trunk.
  • Add support for custom keys in the YAML configuration. These are available to individual site provisioning scripts. See #1071.
  • Add support for PHP 5.6, 7.0, and 7.1 via the VVV YAML configuration. See #1055.
  • Introduce a new documentation structure and an entire set of new documentation. See #1073 and, more importantly, #1112.
  • Introduce documentation explaining the governance of VVV. See #1118.
  • Install MariaDB 10.1 instead of MySQL 5.5 as part of default provisioning. See #1005 and #1115.
  • Install and update WP-CLI with its PHAR file rather than with a git clone. See #1057.
  • Add the php-memcached package to default provisioning as an alternative to php-memcache that works with PHP 7.0. See #1076.
  • Set colordiff as the default svn diff command tool. See #1077.
  • Add a VVV logo to provisioning. See #1110.
  • Add some style to the default VVV dashboard. See #1122.


  • Remove old, unused mu-plugins directory. See #1027.
  • Follow redirects when detecting a network connection. See #1048.
  • Include $is_args with try_files in Nginx configuration. See #1075.
  • Remove an attempt to enforce ipv4 in Postfix as it was not working. See #1116.

  • Improve the package installation check to avoid false positives. See #840.
  • Allow vvv-nginx.conf to be located in a project's subdirectory. See #852.
  • Install the latest version of git via its PPA. See #872
  • Assign names to pre, custom, default, and post provisioners to make --provision-with possible. See #806

  • Add support for VMWare Fusion as a provider. See #587.
  • Add support for VMWare Workstation as a provider. See 656.

Bug fixes and enhancements

  • Composer: Set a custom GitHub token for Composer if it exists. See #575.
  • Docs: Update inline Vagrantfile documentation to better explain various network configurations.
  • MySQL: Enable innodb_file_per_table. See #537.
  • npm: Add npm-check-updates during provisioning to help manage package.json inside the VM. See #484.
  • PHP: Bump max upload size in PHP and Nginx to 1024MB to support developing on the Internet in the year 2016. See #599.
  • PHPCS: Set default code standards for PHPCS to WordPress-Core. See #574.
  • phpMyAdmin: Allow for a custom phpMyAdmin configuration file. See #688.
  • PHPUnit: Update PHPUnit to 4.8.x. A future update of VVV should include PHP 5.6.x or PHP 7 and allow us to update PHPUnit to 5.x. See #808.
  • PHPUnit: Allow PHPUnit to run tests from the local machine while using the WordPress unit tests database in the virtual machine. See #785.
  • PHPUnit: Set the WP_CORE_DIR path so PHPUnit tests are run against WordPress trunk. See #783.
  • Provision: Rewrite provision.sh to be more modular. This improves readability and may one day aid in testability. See #659.
  • Vagrant: Set the default box name to that of the working directory to allow for multiple instances of VVV without conflict. See #706.
  • Vagrant: Allow for a custom trigger, vagrant_up to fire during vagrant up and vagrant reload. See #778.

1.2.0 Release Writeup


  • VVV is now MIT Licensed.

    • If database files already exist from an earlier version of VVV, data will continue to be mapped locally until removed.
    • Database data will continue to exist on the virtual machine through vagrant halt and vagrant suspend.
    • Database data will no longer exist on the virtual machine after vagrant destroy.
