Once you have Vagrant and VVV Varying Vagrant Vagrants up and running by default there are these following WordPress installs and corresponding webroot directories:

  • local.wordpress.dev
  • local.wordpress-trunk.dev
  • src.wordpress-develop.dev
  • build.wordpress-develop.dev

As well as these default sites, you can use a script to power up any number of additional WordPress sites using Variable VVV – The Best VVV Site.

Variable VVV – The Best VVV Site Wizard

Variable VVV – The Best VVV Site Wizard is a development that make the process of adding additional WordPress sites to your VVV set up very easy.

Install Variable VVV

Either download the zip and expand and move it into your Vagrant folder or clone it in…

git clone https://github.com/bradp/vv.git

You can also install via Homebrew

brew install bradp/vv/vv

This will add the vv directory and the all important set up script file is inside named vv – if you didn’t go the HomeBrew install way, it’s best to add the vv directory to your path so you can easily run the vv script.

Running Variable VVV

Run the vv script from your vv folder, in the screen shot below, the vagrant directory is vagrant-wordpress and the new site is redtest.dev

vv create

Run the script and answer the wizard prompts for the initial VVV install directory, directory name, domain name, WP version, Multi-Site, Git Repo, Sample content and debug variables – then the new site will be created and you will be given the config details at the end of the command including the WP Admin login.

You may need to make a cup of tea while it does it’s thing.

variable-vvv-setup-success

variable-vvv-setup-success-site

That’s it the site is now available locally and has a default login of admin/password.

Variable VVV is a fork of VVV Site Wizard and has built further functionality in like blueprints which allow you to set up sites with default plugins and themes – more info on that is available on the projects GitHub page.
