  1. Hey Garret!

    Super Helpful

    Im getting an error when trying to run the vagrant up command

    "The box 'scotch/box' could not be found or
    could not be accessed in the remote catalog. If this is a private
    box on HashiCorp's Atlas, please verify you're logged in via
    `vagrant login`. Also, please double-check the name. The expanded
    URL and error message are shown below:

    URL: [""]"

    Any Suggestions?


  2. Hi Garrett

    Thanks for a great video

    I have tried to set php up using XAMPP, when I come to set up a project in eclipse it doesn't allow it and says "cannot create project file in workspace"

    The project should be created into the alias we created earlier no?
