When a lot of people are working on the same Rails application, than Vagrant could help to set up environment quick and easy. Even Vagrant is not recommended for production, it is very usefull for testing bootstrap scripts automatically. For production we can simply copy bootstrap script and run commands manually.


Default user/password is vagrant/vagrant

vagrant init
vagrant up
vagrant ssh
vagrant halt
vagrant destroy

Run command as deployer user. Usually need to wrap inside bash if you have pipe |, for example sudo -i -u deployer bash -c "ls | less -R"

If you have multuple vagrant boxes and there is port collision, you can set auto fix

config.vm.network :forwarded_port, guest: 8080, host: 80, auto_correct: true
