These slides introduce AtoM users to Vagrant, and walk users through the process of installing the the AtoM Vagrant box for local testing and development on a home computer or laptop, regardless of what operating system you use.
These slides were last updated in May 2017, using the AtoM 2.4 Vagrant box, which is installed using Ubuntu 16.04. and PHP 7.0. Future versions of AtoM may use a different version of Ubuntu and PHP, which might change some of the command-line tasks used to update the box in Part 2. Be sure to check the AtoM documentation for the most up-to-date information: https://www.accesstomemory.org/docs/latest/
The AtoM Vagrant box is designed for local testing and development - it is NOT PRODUCTION READY and should not be used for long-term data storage. Please see the AtoM documentation for instructions on how to install AtoM on a server for use in your institution.
