WordPress Vagrant Boxes

While we're fans of the popular VVV project, this Vagrant configuration takes a different approach. We like to think that VVV is great for up-to-date development tools, working on plugins and themes, and building entirely new websites. However, this configuration was built for the purpose of testing and debugging mostly WordPress core, and ensuring compatibility with older (but still supported) server configurations.

This configuration also doesn't make any assumptions about your preferred development workflow. It does not checkout or install WordPress at all. It's up to you if you would like to unpack and install a ZIP, checkout from SVN, or clone from git. However, the web server is preconfigured to look for WordPress in a specific location.

Getting Started

  1. Install both VirtualBox and Vagrant.
  2. Clone this repository to a convenient location for your development:
    • git clone https://github.com/tierra/wp-vagrant.git
    • cd wp-vagrant
  3. Check out (or clone) the develop repo to the wordpress folder:
    • svn checkout https://develop.svn.wordpress.org/trunk wordpress or
    • git clone git://develop.git.wordpress.org/ wordpress
  4. Add the following to your hosts file:
    • wordpress-php53.local
    • wordpress-php54.local
    • wordpress-php55.local
  5. Start Vagrant: vagrant up [box]
    • Without naming a box, just the wordpress-php55 box will be started. Specify wordpress-php53, or wordpress-php54, to start up instead.

Note that Apache is configured to point to the wordpress/build directory, so you need to remember to run grunt from the WordPress directory after checking out the code. Optionally, you could also just install WordPress normally inside the wordpress/build directory without using the develop repository. All boxes are pre-configured with Node.js and Grunt, so if you don't have these tools installed locally, you can just SSH into the box, and run the following:

cd /vagrant/wordpress && npm install && grunt

With any of the boxes started, you can reach them at these locations:

MySQL Configuration

The MySQL root password is "wordpress", and all boxes come with two pre-configured databases:

  • wordpress (this is meant for a regular installation)
  • wordpress-tests (this is meant for use with PHPUnit tests)

A single account with rights to all databases for convenience:

  • Username: wordpress
  • Password: wordpress
