VirtualBox! In most cases this is fine, but in rare cases it can
prevent things such as shared folders from working properly. If you see
shared folder errors, please make sure the guest additions within the
virtual machine match the version of VirtualBox you have installed on
your host and reload your VM.

Install LAMP Stack:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server-5.5 phpmyadmin

Change the Document Root:

You will have a shared folder “/vagrant”

$ cd /vagrant
$ mkdir www

Copy default host file:

$ sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/default /etc/apache2/sites-available/mysite
$ vim /etc/apache2/sites-available/mysite

Replace the path “/var/www” to “/vagrant/www”

Disable default host and enable new host mysite

$ sudo a2dissite default
$ sudo a2ensite mysite
$ sudo service apache2 restart
