What are the Default Sites?
VVV creates and sets up several WordPress installs for you automatically, these are:
- http://local.wordpress.test - a standard WordPress install for building websites and testing things
- http://build.wordpress-develop.test - a core development WordPress install, for contributor days, testing trunk, and submitting patches
You can see these in your VVV config, allowing you to make new sites, or remove the built in sites if you so choose.

www/ ( see the adding a new site chapter ).
www directories are shared with the virtualized server.
These shared directories allow you to work, for example, in
vagrant-local/www/wordpress-default in your local file system and have those changes immediately reflected in the virtualized server’s file system and http://local.wordpress.test/. Likewise, if you
vagrant ssh and make modifications to the files in
/srv/www/, you’ll immediately see those changes in your local file system.
