First install will take a very long time depending on the platform you are building a gateway device that doesnt have a DB can build quick. However a full LAMP stack server takes ages, for this project it is best to offload the DB to the master server and also mount the /var/www partition from master. the VM technically becomes a splash client of any version of PHP you want. Tested and working for php70/php56.

to stop
vagrant halt
