Installing Magento 2 with PuPHPet

Head over to PuPHPet and setup a machine using the config.yaml file. To do this you can drag the file from your machine onto the PuPHPet homepage then click through the steps and download.

Once you have extracted the file PuPHPet has provided you with create a magento2 directory, then provision Vagrant.

cd ~/path/to/PuPHPet
mkdir ./magento2
vagrant up

Once that has finished running, it may take around 15/20 minutes, move into your magento2 directory, remove the html folder and replace with the magento2 repository. Once Magento2 has downloaded lets install composer.

cd magento2
rm -rf html
git clone html
cd html
composer install

Once that is all okay, you will need to add the following line into your hosts file:

sudo vim /etc/hosts

Now you should be able to access your machine in the browser using the URL You can install Magento from here, however this didn’t work for me. I had to SSH into my Vagrant Box and install Magento using their new tool.

cd ~/path/to/PuPHPet
vagrant ssh
cd /var/www/magento2/html
bin/magento setup:install --db-host=localhost --db-name=magento --db-user=root --db-password=123 --base-url= --backend-frontname=admin --admin-firstname=Admin --admin-lastname=admin --admin-user=admin --admin-password=password

It looks like Magento2 uses the OyeJorge Less library to compile it’s css. If your CSS isn’t loading you will need to compile that. I just bumped up my max execution time and loaded each file manually in the browser to be sure.

Done, Magento 2 should now be working!
