Local duplicate of dreamhost?

software development

#1

We’re trying to setup our local development environment to match as closely as possible the one Dreamhost provides us. Has anyone built a vmware or virtualbox appliance which duplicates DH?

From what I’ve seen there’s a couple different flavours of servers here.

Best bet would be to contact Support via the Panel so they’re aware of the server you’re on as they might be in a position to send you the configs they used when building it. They’re bound to have kept the info and scripts somewhere.

Turns out this is an active feature request. Vote for a vmware appliance by heading over to https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=home.sugg& and searching for vmware.

They also said:

You can actually find all of this information yourself using phpinfo()
and similar functions on the server. Luckily someone’s already gone
through the trouble and setup a site to reference these values etc… for
you : http://php.dreamhosters.com/
