vvv-custom.yml Files – Show Me Your’s, I’ll Show You Mine

With version 2.0 released of the Varying Vagrant Vagrants project, it is now much easier to configure your local VVV environment to your liking. Adding additional sites that are created and configured with a single command is easy breezy.

Tom Nowell wrote a great breakdown of what is new in version 2.0, and the documentation on the VVV website goes into great detail on the different configuration options available to you. I also recommend reading through the README file for the Custom Site Template repository (which your custom site definitions will most likely use for provisioning instructions). I am not going to cover the changes or the different options or settings in this post, so feel free to read through these links to get up to speed.

My vvv-custom.yml File

Recently, during the 4.7.4 release process, I was helping to test the built package files generated for the maintenance release. In addition to the 4.7.x version being updated, some changes were backported all the way back to the 3.7 branch (currently, the oldest maintained version of WordPress).

I realized that I did not have anything set up for testing older versions of WordPress when I started testing the builds. So, I spent a few minutes expanding my vvv-custom.yml file to accommodate this need.

Here is my current vvv-custom.yml file with some of my personal and work sites removed. In addition to the two default sites (wordpress-default and wordpress-develop), I include a multisite environment, and each WordPress version back to 3.7.
