Some useful aliases (add to ~/.zshrc) -
vdestroy='vagrant destroy' vht='vagrant halt' vit='vagrant init' vsd='vagrant suspend' vssh='vagrant ssh' vst='vagrant status' vup='vagrant up'
brew install vagrant
Installing plugins -
vagrant plugin install <plugin_name>
Plugins that I use [ //TODO ] -
vagrant-proxyconf >> for using behind proxy
vagrant-vbguest >> for automatically installing host’s virtualbox guest additions in the guest os
Adding a Box (downloads it so that it can be used further)
vagrant box add debian/jessie64
Init (creates a vagrantfile in the current directory)
vagrant init debian/jessie64
Destroy the current vagrant machine
Always place the
Vagrantfileunder version conntrol
Dont place the
.vagrantfolder in version control
Add Synced folder
config.vm.synced_folder "../data", "/vagrant_data"
The shared filesystem gives you a place to store files that won’t be destroyed as a part of
Shared filesystems just show up as normal folders on the host, and are therefore easily backed up.
Shared folders incur heavy performance penalty within the virtual machine when there is heavy I/O, so they should only be used for source files.
Forward Port from host to guest
config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest:80, host:8080
Provisioning - problem of installing software on a booted system
Vagrant, by default, runs all the provisioning shell scripts as root so there is no need to include

The provisioning method that I commonly use -
# run the provisioning commands that need root config.vm.provision "shell", privilege: true, path: "provision_root.sh" # non-root provisioning commands config.vm.provision "shell", privilege: false, path: "provision_user.sh"
