Craft CMS and Vagrant

I have spent the last few weeks trying to get Craft CMS working on a Vagrant Box having been without a working local dev environment since August and the MacOS Sierra update.

I’m not going to document how to get Vagrant running, or virtualbox (my preferred Virtual Machine service) because you can follow the hashicorp guide on vagrantup.com¬†instead I’m going to tell you how to get a Vagrant box working ready for installing Craft CMS and get making!

Step 1 –¬†https://box.scotch.io/
Step 2 – Follow instructions
Step 3 – Add Craft CMS
S
tep 4 – Follow config instructions

The End.

After all that faffing, trying to get Homestead by Laraval (so that I cold run a single virtual machine for all projects) all it took was one git clone command and I was running.

Valuable lesson learnt.
