Vagrant and Ansible

It works on my box. “I don’t have a day to help Dave set up his new PC”. “I swear I had the same version installed!” Sound familiar? It was for me too before I started using Vagrant and Ansible. Vagrant is a tool for automating the creation of virtual machines. Of course, that’s only half of the battle – once you have a machine you need to configure it. That’s where Ansible comes in. By the end of this tutorial, everyone will have created a Vagrant box that installs PHP, Apache2 and configured an example website.
