This is a SilverStripe module that provides an automated setup of a dev environment for the deploynuat module by using virtualbox, vagrant and ansible.

System requirements

On your development machine you will need:

You can install ansible via pip:

sudo pip install ansible


It is meant to be installed in a project that already have deploynaut installed, see the deploynaut installation instructions. Please note that you will not be required to install capistrano or php-resque, just the source code for the project.

Install this module to your current deploynaut project with composer:

composer require --dev "silverstripe/deploynaut-vagrant:*"

Start the virtual machines from the root of the project from a terminal:

VAGRANT_CWD=deploynaut-vagrant/ vagrant up

You can also only boot selected machines if you don't need the complete environment:

VAGRANT_CWD=deploynaut-vagrant/ vagrant up deploynaut prod

The purpose of using VAGRANT_CWD is that we need to run vagrant from the root folder of the project so that it can be mounted over shared volume into the virtual machine.

On vagrant up the vagrant will start three virtualbox machines and use ansible to install the necessary software for running one deploynaut site and two generic silverstripe sites.

Provisioned machines

Note the last octet of IP is reused as the last part of the forwarded HTTP port number.

Detailed usage instructions

Step by step instructions to setup a fully working environment

VAGRANT_CWD=ansible/ vagrant up

Go to the admin http://localhost:8102/admin/naut/

The username and password is: admin / password

Configure a git repository where needed, e.g.

You can click "Check connection", it should report "You appear to have all necessary dependencies installed"

Go to project/mytest and deploy to the selected environment. The site should be up now.


Q: I have restarted (or vagrant reloaded) the deploynaut server and now it's not working!

A: Resque might not have started. Rerun the provisioner by calling vagrant provision deploynaut.
