Vagrant installation in Windows
In this tutorial, we will be installing Vagrant, a bare bones server with Ubuntu installed. Vagrant is a server that runs under VirtualBox. You will need to have VirtualBox installed. You will also need to have Putty installed in order to access your new Vagrant server via SSH. These instructions also apply to Windows 8.
 
Requirements:
A hard connection to the Internet
Putty needs to be installed. (putty-0.62-installer.exe)
VirtualBox needs to be installed.
Recommended: 8 GB RAM is recommended to run VirtualBox on Windows PCs
 
A. Installing Vagrant – bare bones server – Ubuntu only
1. Download and install the most recent VirtualBox for Windows from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
 
Start up VirtualBox
 
2. Download and install the latest version of Vagrant from http://downloads.vagrantup.com. For this tutorial, we will use version 1.0.6. Windows users, download Vagrant.msi
 
Open Windows cmd prompt
For Windows 8, press Windows key and then press “R” key. This will open the RUN dialog box for you. Type “cmd” and press Enter.
Note: I typed vagrant command and I got the error message saying, ‘vagrant’ command not recognized. It was not added to the Path during install. Restarting your computer may help to refresh the path.
 
3. Change directory to C:\vagrant\vagrant\bin
 
4. Then type the following commands:
 
C:\vagrant\vagrant\bin> vagrant box add lucid32 http://files.vagrantup.com/lucid32.box
C:\vagrant\vagrant\bin> vagrant init lucid32
C:\vagrant\vagrant\bin> vagrant up
 
5. Open Putty and enter these credentials:
Hostname: 127.0.0.1
Port: 2222
Connection type: SSH
 
6. Login to Vagrant server
Enter username: vagrant
Password: vagrant
 
Type ls –lah at the prompt.
This is a bare bones server with Ubuntu installed.
 
vagrant@lucid32:~$ls -lah
