Installing VirtualBox

For you to be able to do anything with Vagrant, you need to have VirtualBox or VMFusion. VirtualBox is freely available while VMFusion is not. We have opted to use VirtualBox in the book for this reason alone, so everyone can follow along without needing to pay for commercial ware. Perform the following steps:

  1. Download a VirtualBox installer compatible with your system from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads. At the time of writing this book, version 4.3.14 is the latest version, and that is what was used in the book.
  2. Once downloaded, double-click on the installer and follow the onscreen instructions.

Note

If needed, the older versions of the installer can be retrieved from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds ...
