You are browsing the documentation for version 4.1 of OroCommerce, OroCRM and OroPlatform, which is no longer maintained. Read version 5.1 (the latest LTS version) of the Oro documentation to get up-to-date information.

See our Release Process documentation for more information on the currently supported and upcoming releases.

Vagrant Provision

To get familiar with the application functionality, you can install Oro applications with environment components using Vagrant.

Every Oro application has a Vagrantfile that enables you to set up a virtual machine with the Oro application via the vagrant up command.

For example, to set up a VM with OroCommerce CE application v. 4.1.4 locally, run:

git clone -b 4.1.4 oroapp && cd oroapp
vagrant up

Once the command has run, you can access the application via the http://localhost:8000/ URL.

The environment in the resulting VM and the provisioning steps in the Vagrantfile replicate the process described in the Setup Application Environment Guide and the Installation Guide.

For more details on preparing the virtual platform for the virtual machine, please see the Installation and Configuration section below.

Installation and Configuration


  • Windows, MacOS, Linux, or any other OS supported by Virtualbox and Vagrant

  • 2048M available RAM on your PC

Installation Steps

Start by installing the required software:

  1. Install VirtualBox.

  2. Install Vagrant.

  3. Install Git.

When you have installed VirtualBox, Vagrant, and Git, do the following:

  1. Get the Oro application source code:

    git clone -b 4.1.4 <oro_application_clone_url> oroapp && cd oroapp

    Replace the <oro_application_clone_url> with the repository URL for the necessary Oro application:

    OroCommerce Community Edition

    OroCommerce Community Edition for Germany

    OroCommerce Enterprise Edition

    OroCommerce Enterprise Edition for Germany

    OroCommerce Enterprise Edition (without CRM)

    OroCRM Community Edition

    OroCRM Enterprise Edition

    OroPlatform Community Edition


    You can download and unpack the archive with Oro application source code instead of using the Git repository. For more information, please see Get the Oro Application Source Code.

  2. Configure and run the virtual machine using Vagrant:

    For Community Editions of the Oro Applications run:

    vagrant up

    for the Enterprise Editions of Oro applications, specify the following two environment variables:

    • gittoken - Github token use it to install Oro application dependencies

    • licence - Enterprise Licence key for your Oro Application

    gittoken=39ca9521e1031bfacae976f8d799fa7c54a15edb licence=YourEnterpsiseLicenceKey vagrant up

    Once the command execution is complete, and the setup is finished, you can use the Oro application. Read more on logging in with credentials in the Usage section.


    When you run vagrant up for the first time, the Oro application installation may take some time, as the following time-consuming steps happen:

    • Base CentOS/7 box download

    • LEMP stack installation on the guest system

    • Installation of composer dependencies for Oro application

    • Oro application installation; note that loading demo data takes extra time.

    The total time for the environment to get up and running depends on multiple factors, such as internet connection speed, CPU frequency, etc. It usually takes from 1- to 15 minutes.

Customize Installation Process

To customize the default installation settings, modify the Provision configuration section of the Vagrantfile ( refer to the commands and inline comments for more information).

The default values for the most important settings are:

Database settings


Application settings

APP_LOAD_DEMO_DATA=y    # y | n (whether to perform loading demo data during installation)

To customize the application hostname:

  • Set the new APP_HOST parameter value in the Vagrantfile (e.g. yourdomain.local)

  • Map the new hostname to the application host IP address in your local hosts file, like in the following examples: yourdomain.local www.yourdomain.local

Now you can open the Oro application in a browser via the http://yourdomain.local/ URL.

Running Multiple Virtual Machines

To run multiple virtual machines simultaneously on a single host, ensure that every virtual instance uses a unique forwarded port. Before running an additional instance, modify its forwarded port in the host section of the “forwarded_port” setting in the Vagrant file. You can increment the value for every new virtual instance, e.g. instance A can have “forwarded_port”, guest: 80, host: 8000 configuration, and instance B can have “forwarded_port”, guest: 80, host: 8001.


Access the Installed Oro Application

Once the VM setup has finished, you can access the application in your browser with the credentials defined by your installation configuration.

The default login details are:

  • Application Storefront URL: http://localhost:8000/

  • Application Admin UI URL: http://localhost:8000/admin/

  • Admin Login: admin

  • Admin Password: adminpass

If you have changed the application host, admin login, or password, please refer to the Vagrantfile for these details.

Shared Working Directory

Vagrant maps the working directory on your host machine to the /vagrant directory in the virtual machine file system.

Once the VM is up, any changes to the files in the host working directory are applied to the /vagrant directory in the virtual machine file system, and vice versa.


For installation, the application source code is copied from /vagrant folder to the application root folder (/var/www/oroapp/) in the VM file system.

SSH Access to the Virtual Machine

To connect to the virtual machine via SSH, run the following command in the working directory on your host machine:

vagrant ssh

You will be logged in the virtual machine as vagrant user with sudo permission (you do not need a password to use the sudo command).

To configure SSH access to the virtual machine for the utilities that run on the host machine, like IDE, get the explicit SSH credentials by running the following command:

vagrant ssh-config

Access Oro Application Database

In the virtual machine, you can access the DB server using credentials provided in the Provision configuration section of the Vagrantfile. The default credentials are dbuser:DBP@ssword123.

To access the database from the host machine, configure and use the SSH connection to the guest machine database server, as described in the SSH Access to the Virtual Machine section above.

Vagrant Сommands

  • vagrant up – Creates and configures the virtual machine according to the vagrantfile. Unless vagrant destroy has been launched on the consecutive runs vagrant up powers on the virtual machine. The provisioning script defined in config.vm.provision variable in the Vagrantfile is run only once.

  • vagrant halt – Stops the virtual machine and saves the virtual machine image (without the current RAM state) to the host hard drive.

  • vagrant suspend – Stops the virtual machine and saves the virtual machine image and the current RAM state the host hard drive.

  • vagrant destroy – Destroys the VM and frees the resources of the host machine.

For more information, please see the official Vagrant documentation.
