SoFloPHP Miami (Vagrant)

Adam Culp will talk about using Vagrant to create and manage virtualized development environments, making it easier to mirror production servers. Then will briefly cover using Puppet for more advanced provisioning, making the addition of multiple development environments and servers easier and faster.

If you're developing and are not sure what these technologies are, this talk is for you. As a developer it's increasingly important to ensure our development, testing, staging, and production environments are as closely matched to each other as possible, alleviating the "can't reproduce it on my machine" excuses. Whether you use 2, 3, or 4 of these environments is of less importance if they are all built on the same "stack" of applications.

    Having some problems that I am hoping someone can help me with. Normally I don't ask for advice here but I have tried everything. I am installing vagrant / virtual box on a windows 7 computer. Everything works fine except I can never access the website in my browser using localhost or any other way. I have followed the instructions carefully on may different sites and everything goes without a hitch but never can access the site, please help if someone can :)

      So there are a few steps that need to be followed:

      First, make sure that port forwarding is on.
      Second, make sure to enable some sort of vhost domain name in Apache on the vhost.
      Third, make sure to enable the domain name in the host file of the host machine.

      If you continue to have issues feel free to ping me on Skype (adamculp).

      Thanks Adam, you got me on the right path, I just needed to ssh into the vhost, still have not figured it out but at least I am moving again.

    I would love to attend, however, my car is currently not running. If anybody living in Boca would be willing to give me a ride, I would share expenses. If not, I will attend when and if it comes to Boca. Thanks all!
