How To Install Vagrant on Rocky Linux 9

Install Vagrant on Rocky Linux 9

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Vagrant on Rocky Linux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, If you’re tired of manually setup and configuration of virtual machines, Vagrant is the perfect solution. It’s free and open-source software that automates the creation and management of VMs. With Vagrant, you can create and configure virtual environments with ease, making it a fantastic tool for software development and testing. No more headaches with setting up and tearing down VMs.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Vagrant on Rocky Linux. 9.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Rocky Linux 9.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Vagrant.
  • VirtualBox or another supported virtualization software installed on the system.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Vagrant on Rocky Linux 9

Step 1. The first step is to update your system to the latest version of the package list. To do so, run the following commands:

sudo dnf check-update
sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core

Step 2. Installing Vagrant on Rocky Linux 9.

By default, Vagrant is not on the Rocky Linux 9 base repository. Now we add a HashiCorp repository to your Rocky Linux system:

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://rpm.releases.hashicorp.com/RHEL/hashicorp.repo

Next, import the GPG key using the following command:

sudo rpm --import https://rpm.releases.hashicorp.com/gpg

After adding the repository, update the system’s package list and install Vagrant using the following command below:

sudo dnf install vagrant

To verify that Vagrant is installed correctly on Rocky Linux 9, run the following command in the terminal:

vagrant --version

Step 3. Configuring Vagrant.

Once Vagrant is installed on Rocky Linux 9, it needs to be configured properly. First, create a new directory where you want to store your Vagrant project. For example, let’s create a directory called my-vagrant-project in your home directory by running the following command:

mkdir ~/my-vagrant-project

Change to the newly created directory using the following command:

cd ~/my-vagrant-project

Next, edit the Vagrantfile using your favorite text editor such as nano text editor to specify the operating system and other settings for your VM. For example, to use the latest version of CentOS 8 as your VM’s operating system, edit the Vagrantfile to include the following lines:

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
config.vm.box = "centos/8"

Save and exit the text editor, then start the VM by running the following command:

vagrant up

Once the VM is up and running, you can connect to it using SSH by executing the following command:

vagrant ssh

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Vagrant. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing Vagrant on your Rocky Linux 9 system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official Vagrant website.
