Make it very easy to setup a complete development stack (MySQL, PHP, NodeJS, etc) in a matter of minutes.



Download Vagrantfile to project_name_dir and up server

$ cd project_name_dir
$ wget http://ilyar.github.io/localserver/Vagrantfile
$ vagrant up

The project is available at http://project_name_dir.local/


$ vagrant suspend # suspends the machine
$ vagrant halt # stops the vagrant machine
$ vagrant destroy -f # stops and deletes all traces of the vagrant machine

And like any other vagrant file you have SSH access with:

$ vagrant ssh

also can run once command:

$ ssh vagrant@localserver pwd
