Vagrant base image for CentOS 6.5

Post date:

Vagrant is a very nice system for automating and standardizing your development environments. The standard documentation is geared towards Ubuntu but at $work we standardize on CentOS and RHEL 6.

I created a base image for Vagrant based on CentOS 6.5 Minimal Install.Vagrant


  • Default vagrant ‘insecure’ key
  • root password is ‘vagrant
  • Added EPEL repository
  • Installed Virtualbox Guest Additions and dkms
  • Disabled iptables
  • Set selinux to ‘permissive’

How to start this image locally using Vagrant:

 $ vagrant box add centos6
 $ vagrant init centos6
 $ vagrant up
