How Do I Access Vagrant Web Server?

Vagrant is an open-source tool that allows you to create and manage virtual development environments. With Vagrant, you can easily set up a web server locally on your machine for testing and development purposes. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to access a Vagrant web server.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following:

  • Vagrant installed on your machine
  • A virtual machine provisioned with Vagrant

Step 1: Start the Vagrant Environment

To access the web server, first, start the Vagrant environment by navigating to your project directory in the terminal and running the following command:

vagrant up

This command will start the virtual machine and provision it based on your Vagrantfile configuration.

Step 2: SSH into the Virtual Machine

Next, SSH into the virtual machine by running:

vagrant ssh

This command establishes an SSH connection to the virtual machine.


If you’re using Windows, you might need an SSH client like Git Bash or PuTTY to run this command. Make sure to set up the SSH client before proceeding.

Step 3: Accessing Web Server Locally

Once inside the virtual machine, navigate to the web server’s document root directory. This directory is typically located at /var/www/html/.

cd /var/www/html/

In this directory, you will find the files and folders that make up your web application.

Accessing the Web Server via Web Browser

To access the web server locally, open a web browser on your host machine and enter the following URL:


This URL assumes that your Vagrant configuration forwards port 8080 on your host machine to port 80 on the virtual machine. If you’ve configured a different port forwarding, adjust the URL accordingly.

You should now see your web application’s homepage or the default server page if you haven’t set up any content yet.


Congratulations! You have successfully accessed your Vagrant web server. Now you can start developing and testing your web applications in a controlled environment.

Vagrant simplifies the process of setting up and managing virtual development environments, making it an ideal tool for developers working on multiple projects or collaborating with teams. With easy access to your web server, you can focus on building amazing websites and applications.
