The box is a self-contained Joomla developer environment and has everything you need right from the start. You don't have to worry about setting up Vagrant, provisioning the server or even configuring Joomla installations. Since everything is packaged into the box, you can simply focus on your code.


The box comes with the following technologies installed and configured by default:

  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • PHP 7.3
  • Apache 2.4
  • Ruby 2.6.5
  • MariaDB 10.4 (MySQL)
  • Node 12.14

On top of that, you have these developer tools at your disposal right away:

To help you manage the development server via your browser, we've included these projects:

Let's get started.

We've also included these extra packages for testing purposes, but they require manual configuration. Only for experts:

  • Nginx (running on port 81)
  • Varnish (running on port 8080)


The code and Puppet configuration are available on GitHub.
