Vagrant Debian squeeze installation for cloud deployment:


So this boils down to:

Install Vagrant
gem install vagrant

Download and start Debian Squeeze in SSH mode using Vagrant
vagrant box add debian_squeeze_32
mkdir squeeze_demo
cd squeeze_demo
vagrant init debian_squeeze_32

Forward port and/or IP (TODO)
Open Vagrantfile with your favourite text editor. Change these lines:
# ""
# config.vm.forward_port "http", 80, 8080

Start the Vagrant box
vagrant up
vagrant ssh

Install dependencies
sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get install ant git-core default-jdk -y

Install and start xQTL workbench

cd xqtlwb
git clone
git clone
ant -f molgenis_apps/xqtl_dev.xml make_run
