WordPress in Vagrant Using Laravel Homestead

Over on the WebDevStudios blog, Joe Murgel put together a great little write-up of how we used Laravel Homestead to host WordPress installations, and why and how you might do it too. For the uninitiated, Homestead is nice little project that’s branched off from the PHP framework Laravel which is made to provision modern PHP servers in Vagrant easily for local development.

I’ve personally used Homestead for Laravel and Symfony PHP applications and find it an awesome shortcut for setting up and maintaining Vagrant machines. I’ve never used it for WordPress — when I’ve wanted Vagrant for WordPress I’ve picked VVV as the seeming community standard. Going forward, I may just have to give Homestead a try for that too.
