So I did
vagrant box add laravel/homestead in my home directory (C:\Users\User Name) and got the following back:
==> box: Loading metadata for box 'laravel/homestead' box: URL: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/laravel/homestead ==> box: Adding box 'laravel/homestead' (v0.5.0) for provider: virtualbox box: Downloading: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/laravel/boxes/homestead/versions/0.5.0/providers/virtualbox.box box: Progress: 100% (Rate: 11.3M/s, Estimated time remaining: --:--:--) ==> box: Successfully added box 'laravel/homestead' (v0.5.0) for 'virtualbox'!
I then, in that directory, do
vagrant up and get the following error:
A Vagrant environment or target machine is required to run this command. Run `vagrant init` to create a new Vagrant environment. Or, get an ID of a target machine from `vagrant global-status` to run this command on. A final option is to change to a directory with a Vagrantfile and to try again.
Do I need to do
vagrant init? https://laravel.com/docs/5.3/homestead doesn't make any mention of it. Based on my Google searches it seems like
vagrant init is for creating new boxes from scratch - not for re-using boxes you downloaded..
