WordPress VVV Vagrant Running Slow on Virtual Box

Is your VVV Vagrant running slow on Virtual Box, lot’s of MySQL restarts, takes ages to SSH into the box – that might be because the initial memory settings was left at 512MB which is not pretty and as your working day goes on and you feel like your hitting a brick wall.

This can be easily adjusted for a better performance with an increase in memory, in the same location as your Vagrant instance where your Vagrantfile config file is located create a new file called CustomFile in CustomFile add…

config.vm.provider :virtualbox do |v|
  v.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", 2048]
end

Here it’s set to 2048(2GB) – depending on how much RAM you have set it reasonably high if you work in it all day.

Reload vagant

vagrant halt
vagrant up

vagrant-vvv-ram-setting

Check in Virtual Box the new RAM allocation or directly on the box using the command

free -m
