Manually download vagrant box file and create a virtual machine

For some reason, the place i am working is very slow pulling vagrant box file, so i have to manually download it using some other way before creating vagrant init file.

1. Download and install vagrant

2. Find the box file location from “”. For example, if the box file location is

Its actual download location will be

3.  {url} is the saved box physical location on hard drive.

#This will also keep a copy of box file in VAGRANT_HOME, need to change it if run out of space.

$ vagrant init {title}

4. Go to virtual box, file – preferences – change default machine folder.
