I have started to use trellis and bedrock to streamline my workflow developing wordpress apps for my clients. Unfortunately I’m not a pro dev and I progress quite slowly. The ‘framework’ is impressive and it works pretty well. I like it. I have started a couple projects on my laptop but I would really like having my development sites stored on an external disk.
Unfortunately, when I ‘power up’ vagrant I receive an error message, probably because of a SSH key problem. I have read of this kind of issues when installing on a non-system volume. Is there way to have it running on external drive?
Sorry, I missed the part about your Mac. I’d assumed something formatted ExFAT would be on a Windows device.
Yeah, unless you’re going to be sharing it w/ non-Mac users I’d just reformat it to HFS or whatever the native Mac format is these days. AFAIK ExFAT isn’t going to support the kind of permissions you need. Sometimes you can get around that via symlinks and stuff, but IMO that’s more trouble than it’s worth. (Also I wouldn’t be surprised if your VMs take a performance hit because of MacOS’s negotiation w/ the ExFAT filesystem.)
Quick update: got a new disk and formatted in APFS, now everything works fine. Bringing up the VM is a little slow, but perfect under any other aspect. Now…my next question is: I am syncing a copy of the disk to Dropbox…just in case. I cannot copy several files which are actually aliases in ‘site/vendor/bin’ . Is it a big issue?
