Vagrant Development Box

Vagrant Development Box

Developed By Grizzlyware Ltd

Compatible with WHMCS v7.8

WHMCS Development Vagrant Box

A Vagrant box, customised for WHMCS development, built on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver). It sets up all the stuff you're dreading.

Uses

This Vagrant box can be used to create a local copy of your WHMCS installation, so you can then test addons and make changes to your website without risking damaging your public WHMCS. Developers can also use it to speed up WHMCS development.

Features

  • PHP 7.2
  • MySQL 5.7
  • ionCube Loaders v10.3.5
  • Cron support (every 5 minutes)

Prerequisites

  • Vagrant
  • Virtualbox
  • A valid WHMCS license (development licenses are fine)
  • A copy of WHMCS

Installation

  1. Clone the repo to your local computer
  2. Move the WHMCS source code into the public/whmcs directory, which should contain an empty file.
  3. Edit the IP in Vagrantfile if you wish
  4. Run vagrant up
  5. Head to 192.168.13.37 (or the IP you changed it to)
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions
  7. Enjoy, we hope that's eased the development burden!

Additional options

Additional databases

You can create additional databases on first provision (or after a vagrant destroy and vagrant up). You can configure those in config.json. By default, only one database will be created, whmcs_default.

Use a hostname

You can create a line in your systems hosts file to use a hostname instead of the boxes IP address. A guide to edit your hosts file can be found here.

Create multiple WHMCS installations

The default installation path is /public/whmcs but you can move that, or create additional installations as you see fit.

Cron job

You can remove the cron or change it's frequency as you see fit, just vagrant-ssh into the box and run crontab -e to edit it.

Use a WHMCS helper library

Salmon for WHMCS, found @ https://github.com/grizzlyware/salmon-whmcs extends many of the default models with extended functionality, making it easier to query the Eloquent models. It also contains an array of helper classes to make common tasks in WHMCS simpler and easier to do.

I love Vagrant so was super happy to see this existed. Normally I use VMWare as the provider and this requires VirtualBox, which is clearly stated on the github page. So, I simply moved over to a machine with VirtualBox installed and BAM, one "vagrant up" later and I have WHMCS dev machine running.

Also, the provision scripts are a pretty good model to follow if you want to install a dev box by hand. All in all, 5 stars.
