This Vagrant setup is still Work in Progress, though it can be used as is.

Disroot Website Development Environment using Vagrant


  1. vagrant 2.2.10 for install on Debian run commands:

    wget https://releases.hashicorp.com/vagrant/2.2.10/vagrant_2.2.10_x86_64.deb


    sudo dpkg -i vagrant_2.2.10_x86_64.deb


    sudo apt install -f


  2. virtuabox

    for install on Debian Buster run command:

    sudo echo 'deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian buster contrib' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list


    wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox_2016.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    wget -q https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -


    sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install virtualbox-6.0


  3. vagrant plugins vagrant-vbguest:
    for install on Debian run commands:

    vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest


  4. git

    sudo apt install git



  1. Create a Disroot folder, in which you'll clone three repositories:
    mkdir ~/Disroot
  2. Clone disroot-website repo to Disroot folder
    git clone https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/Website.git ~/Disroot/Website
  3. Clone grav-theme-disroot repo to Disroot folder
    git clone https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/grav-theme-disroot.git ~/Disroot/grav-theme-disroot
  4. Clone grav-theme-disrootblog repo to Disroot folder
    git clone https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/grav-theme-disrootblog.git ~/Disroot/grav-theme-disrootblog
  5. Clone grav-plugin-language-selector repo to Disroot folder
    git clone https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/grav-plugin-language-selector.git ~/Disroot/grav-plugin-language-selector
  6. Clone Disroot-Privacy-Policy repo to Disroot folder
    git clone https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/Disroot-Privacy-Policy.git ~/Disroot/Disroot-Privacy-Policy
  7. Clone Disroot Changelog repo to Disroot folder
    git clone https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/CHANGELOG.git ~/Disroot/Disroot-Changelog
  8. Add the local domain name for the hub to your host machine's /etc/hosts file.
    sudo  " disroot.lan" >> /etc/hosts
  9. Launch Vagrant to build the virtual machine (VM). This will take several minutes.
    cd ~/DisrootWebsite/vagrant
    vagrant up disroot_lan

Congratulations, you should now have a fully functioning apache+GRAV server running locally in a Virtualbox-hosted VM managed by Vagrant. Next time you want to run vagrant simply run command cd ~/Disroot/disroot-website/vagrant vagrant up disroot_lan vagrant provision

Enable SSH access

To make your development workflow more efficient, you may wish to use an SSH connection to rapidly synchronize the files you are developing in your local (host machine) development environment.

  1. On your host machine, copy your public key.
    user@host:~$ cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.public
    	ssh-rsa eLX1UQbJHUCHf2V3K7YlMP0YmIT+50rlEsWre1eobApKb0Ac/WbvssX/Gh/ user@host
  2. Use vagrant ssh disroot_lan to log in to the virtual machine.
    user@host:~$ cd ~/Disroot/disroot-website/vagrant
    user@host:hubzilla-vagrant$ vagrant ssh disroot_lan
  3. Switch to root and add your host user public key.
    vagrant@stretch:~$ sudo -i
    root@jessie:~# ssh-keygen
    		Generating public/private rsa key pair.
    		Enter file in which to save the key (/root/.ssh/id_rsa):
    		Created directory '/root/.ssh'.
    		Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
    		Enter same passphrase again:
    		Your identification has been saved in /root/.ssh/id_rsa.
    		Your public key has been saved in /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.
    		The key fingerprint is:
    		b4:e3:00:40:4f:c5:af:27:05:09:d4:70:29:ac:f8:51 root@jessie
    		The key's randomart image is:
    		+---[RSA 2048]----+
    		| .oo=*oo         |
    		|   +E.*          |
    		| . oo. o.        |
    		|. o  . .o.       |
    		| . .  .oS        |
    		|  .   oo..       |
    		|       o.        |
    		|                 |
    		|                 |
    root@stretch:~# echo "ssh-rsa eLX1UQbJHUCHf2V3K7YlMP0YmIT+50rlEsWre1eobApKb0Ac/WbvssX/Gh/ user@host" >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
  4. From your host machine, you may now SSH into the virtual machine using
    ssh root@disroot.lan
