Faster Vagrant WordPress minimum requirements box

I’ve worked on my modified version of Jeffrey Way’s Vagrant set up one-liner to deliver a WordPress minimum requirements Vagrant box ready for development.
Through shell provisioning the script will download an Ubuntu “Lucid Lynx” box from Vagrant official repository and configure it with

  • Apache 2.2
  • PHP 5.2
  • MySQL 5.1
  • XDebug
  • forwarded 3306 port to allow remote SQL access to the databases

once the vagrant up is done installing WordPress latest version, setting up a database and virtual hosting is as easy as

vagrant ssh

Following the on-screen questions will allow a local development machine to be up and running in minutes.
