Using libvirt (KVM/QEMU) with MediaWiki-Vagrant

libvirt is a virtualization API. It supports multiple backends (hypervisors), including KVM/QEMU.


Running MediaWiki-Vagrant in KVM/QEMU under libvirt requires to install the libvirt Vagrant plugin. On a Fedora system, you can just install the package vagrant-libvirt. For Debian see their wiki page

At first download the Debian Jessie box:

vagrant box add debian/contrib-jessie64 #

You would then need to convert the box to libvirt. Install the mutate plugin either from your distribution package 'vagrant-mutate' or if not available:

vagrant plugin install mutate

Then do the conversion:

vagrant mutate debian/contrib-jessie64 libvirt


vagrant up --provider=libvirt
