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
- http://src.wordpress-develop.test and http://build.wordpress-develop.test - a copy of the develop branch of WordPress
You can see these in your VVV config, allowing you to make new sites, or remove the built in sites if you so choose.
VVV as a MAMP/XAMPP Replacement
Multiple projects can be developed at once in the same environment.
wp-content/themesin either the
www/wordpress-develop/public_html/srcdirectories to develop themes.
wp-content/pluginsin either the
www/wordpress-develop/public_html/srcdirectories to develop plugins.
- Take advantage of VVV’s auto site configuration to provision additional instances of WordPress in
www/. The Variable VVV project helps to automate this process.
- Use the
www/wordpress-developdirectory to participate in WordPress core development.
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.
