What version of PHP would this be installing? I am thinking it will be the latest version (assuming 5.5 at the moment) which would then install the version of PHP which no longer has native support for JSON (thus requiring some extra libraries). I am not entirely sure how this whole process works, thus the reason for asking

@mikeerickson This will install php 5.5 from the ondrej PPA. You've however been misinformed about 5.5 not having JSON support, further details here:

@toblebooth Thank you very much for the clarification on this... Just wanted to make sure I wasn't forgetting something.

This will also install Apache 2.4+ (2.4.6 as of this writing). This update to Apache (2.4) has some new things to pay attention to if you're used to configuring Apache virtual hosts.

So, it is basically working... But it doesnt seem to host the laravel code (although it appears there when I have an ssh connection). When I hit localhost:4567 (my defined port in VagrantFile) I see the follow

It works!

This is the default web page for this server.

The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

Hey @mikeerickson - did you figure out the next steps?

Something like this (I haven't tested any of these yet:

# Create Laravel Project
cd /vagrant
composer create-project laravel/laravel project-name

# Set virtual host to Laravel Project web root
# using provided "vhost" tool:
sudo vhost -s mysite.local -d /vagrant/project-name/public
sudo service apache2 reload

Essentially you need to create a laravel project and then setup a virtual host. Then you can use your host file to point the domain (mysite.local in this example) to your virtual machine. I always give my Vagrant box a static IP address rather than use port forwarding.

If you use the standard port forwarding settings, you probably want to use the VM's "localhost" (default site) to point to the laravel project's public directory.

You can edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf and change the DocumentRoot path there, and skip the "vhost" commands above.

-OR-, perhaps easier, you can symlink the "/var/www" directory to your laravel project's web root:

# Create Laravel Project
cd /vagrant
composer create-project laravel/laravel project-name

# Symlink /var/www to laravel project web root
sudo rm -rf /var/www
sudo ln -s /vagrant/project-name/public /var/www

What of apache to remove to support Nginx?

Copy link

@renege - That's something I'd like to build as well. This blog post goes over installing Nginx and is otherwise mostly the same.

Note that you'd need to replace the Apache install stuff with Nginx, remove the install of the vhost tool, then add-in the install of the php5-fpm package, and then finally configure Nginx to read php5-fpm. That's outlined in the blog post linked above.

Hopefully I get to that sometime soon...

You can follow the following to get zsh working in Ubuntu as well.

Great question!

I'm working with a modded version (I left out the last part concerning vim, and also on line 15, because I prefer nano), now I get this error:
