Install Vagrant and setup a virtual machine with Linux

Vagrant is compatible for Debian and Ubuntu.

Browser configuration

To access the application through the brower at localhost:3000 we must forward a port and run the rails server with a binding option:

Port forwarding

Open the Vagrant configuration file:

nano Vagranfile

Find this line:

# "forwarded_port", guest: 80, host: 8080

And change it for this configuration: "forwarded_port", guest: 3000, host: 3000

Reload your virtual machine:

vagrant reload

Running the rails server

In your virtual machine, run the application server, binding to your local ip address:

bin/rails s -b

Now you should be able to see the application running in your browser at url localhost:3000! :tada:
