Development Environments Made Easy Quote by

My Environment

  • Host OS: Window 11 or Ubuntu / Centos or Rocky server.
  • Vagrant version: 2.2.18
  • Vagrant provider: VirtualBox
  • Boxes Vagrant: rockylinux/8
  • Terminal/PowerShell

Deploy LAMP on rocky Linux using Vagrant directory and files will look like as below:

|   Vagrantfile
|       gitconfig
|       index.html
|       info.php

Create a Virtual Machine

Navigate to my working directory and create an initial Vagrantfile if one does not already exist.

cd Rocky-LAMP
vagrant init rockylinux/8

Configure the Virtual Machine

You need to edit the Vagrantfile and paste the content as below

# -*- mode: ruby -*-
# vi: set ft=ruby :

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| = "rockylinux/8"
  config.vm.hostname = ""
  config.ssh.insert_key = false "private_network", ip: "" "forwarded_port", guest: 80, host: 8888
  config.vbguest.auto_update = false
  # Install LAMP on Rocky server
  config.vm.provision "shell", 
  path: "C:\\MyData\\Vagrant_VMS\\Projects\\Vagrant\\Rocky-LAMP\\Scripts\\"
  # Test HTML
  #config.vm.provision "file", 
  # source: "C:\\MyData\\Vagrant_VMS\\Projects\\Vagrant\\Rocky-LAMP\\Files\\index.html",
  # destination: "/var/www/html/index.html"
  #Test PHP
  #config.vm.provision "file", 
  # source: "C:\\MyData\\Vagrant_VMS\\Projects\\Vagrant\\Rocky-LAMP\\Files\\info.php",
  # destination: "/var/www/html/info.php"

I use provision shell to install Apache, MySQL, and PHP on Rocky Linux. The script update OS, install the packages: Apache PHP and MySQL.

The content “” script is as below:


#Update OS
sudo yum update -y --exclude=kernel

sudo yum install -y git unzip

sudo dnf install -y httpd httpd-devel httpd-tools

#chkconfig --add httpd
sudo systemctl enable httpd.service
sudo systemctl stop httpd

sudo systemctl start httpd

sudo dnf install -y php php-cli php-gd php-curl php-zip php-mbstring php-opcache php-intl php-mysqlnd

sudo yum install -y mysql mysql-server mysql-devel
sudo systemctl enable mysqld.service
sudo systemctl start mysqld

mysql -u root -e "SHOW DATABASES";

# content
sudo rm -rf /var/www/html/*
sudo cp -rf /vagrant/Files/{index.html,info.php} /var/www/html/
# cd /vagrant
#sudo -u vagrant wget -q https://raw.git.....

sudo systemctl restart httpd

Deploy LAMP on Rocky Linux

We use the “vagrant up” command line. This command creates and configures guest machines according to your Vagrantfile

vagrant up

How to connect to the virtual machine.

vagrant ssh

The output terminal as below

C:\MyData\Vagrant_VMS\Projects\Vagrant\Rocky-LAMP>vagrant ssh
[vagrant@devopsroles ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Rocky Linux release 8.5 (Green Obsidian)
[vagrant@devopsroles ~]$ ip a
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 08:00:27:fc:e9:96 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global dynamic noprefixroute eth0
       valid_lft 85565sec preferred_lft 85565sec
    inet6 fe80::a00:27ff:fefc:e996/64 scope link
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 08:00:27:cf:7f:96 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global noprefixroute eth1
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::a00:27ff:fecf:7f96/64 scope link
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

You need to open a browser that can access your Server’s IP address.

The resulting output picture as below:
