How to import .zexp's into Plone Vagrants VM from your native client.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Time: < 10 minutes

Must have already

  1. Plone Vagrant ready to go
  2. Basic understanding of how to use Vagrant (start, stop, etc...)

How to...

1. Create a new folder called "import" in your Plone Vagrant instance on our native client.

  • E.g.  C:\plonedev.vagrant-master\ add a new folder "import".  If you're worried you're not in the correct directory, you should see two other folders called "manifests" and "plone" as well as other files.

2. SSH into your VM

3. Run the following command:

  • ln -s /vagrant/import/* /home/vagrant/Plone/zinstance/var/instance/import

4. Done!

and Beyond...

Now that you've learned how to mirror a client folder to your Vagrant VM, you can use this technique for any other files or folders you may need.
