Mourning the loss of VIP Quickstart? A fan of VVV? Then I have something for you.
Presenting, an unofficial Tom and Lorelei venture: VIP VVV! Available now on GitHub at https://github.com/tomjn/VIP-VVV
To setup, simply add this to your VVV’s
vvv-custom.yml file under the sites section:
myvipsite: repo: https://github.com/tomjn/VIP-VVV.git hosts: - vip.local - myvipsite.vip.local
Then run this command:
vagrant reload --provision
This will create a subdomain multisite configured for WordPress.com VIP development. All that’s left to do is checkout your theme in
Note: Some of you may be using VIP Go, Simon Wheatley has you covered with VIP-VVV-Go
Hey Tom, is it necessary to add the multisite: true option when using this template?
Nope, it’s supposed to do a multisite install, I wonder if I forgot to put the multisite defines in wp-config, hmmm
An important thing to note that I learnt since building it, is that not all folders are mounted on VIP Go, e.g. if you have
wp-content/bananas, you can’t visit files in that folder on a VIP Go site, it can be read from PHP, but isn’t presented to the open web. However, VIP-VVV will happily serve that folder
