[FIXED/SOLVED] scotch/box


scotch/box and scotch/box-pro have been discontinued for over 2 years! Version 3.5 was released with Ubuntu 16.05 and Pro version 1.5 was released with Ubutnu 17 – both are out of support with Ubuntu and running them can be very challenging!

Common errors include:

  • Unable to run apt-get update without errors
  • Running apt-get upgrade doesn’t upgrade anything
  • Unable to run or install modern frameworks like Laravel or Symfony on ScotchBox
  • PHP 7.0 is no longer supported

THE SOLUTION/FIX:

After being frustrated at the workarounds I decided to rebuild the box completely from scratch using Nick’s Scotchbox as a baseline, but my iteration is called Cognac Box.

Installation and use are just as simple to use, but using a much more modern tech stack!

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, latest PHP, MySQL, Redis, etc. as of March 2020

To use:

git clone https://github.com/reddingwebpro/cognacbox.git my-project 
cd my-project
vagrant up

That’s it, you’re all set. Enjoy!
