Mark's Vagrantfile-based CSpace installation

An almost completely unattended way to create a VirtualBox VM running Ubuntu 14.04.x LTS, and then run the automated CollectionSpace server installer within that VM:

  • Install both VirtualBox ( and Vagrant (
  • Create a new directory.
  • cd to that new directory.
  • In a web browser, visit
