Bedrock with Valet

Laravel Valet is a local development environment. In this guide you will learn how to setup a Bedrock-based WordPress site with Valet.

Valet supports Bedrock out of the box, along with traditional WordPress installations, Laravel apps, Drupal sites, and more. Since Valet is very lightweight, it is a great local development setup for folks that are working on several WordPress sites at any given time.

See the Valet installation docs for information on how to install Valet. You will also want to install the Valet WP-CLI command:

$ wp package install aaemnnosttv/wp-cli-valet-command:@stable

# Setting up a Bedrock site

To create a new Bedrock site for Valet, navigate to Valet sites directory and use the wp valet command:

$ cd ~/Sites/valet
$ wp valet new bedrock --project=bedrock

You should now be able to access your new site at https://bedrock.test.

If you hit a 404, make sure that you have ran valet park from your Valet sites directory first.

# Bedrock multisite

# Subdomain installs

  • wp valet new bedrock-multisite --project=bedrock
  • Add to config/application.php in Bedrock:
Config::define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
  • Visit https://bedrock-multisite.test/wp/wp-admin/network.php to install the network and select subdomain install
  • Add to .env: DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE=bedrock-multisite.test
  • Update config/application.php again with full multisite constants:
/**
 * Multisite
 */
Config::define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
Config::define('MULTISITE', true);
Config::define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true);
Config::define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', env('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE'));
Config::define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', env('PATH_CURRENT_SITE') ?: '/');
Config::define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', env('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE') ?: 1);
Config::define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', env('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE') ?: 1);
  • Add the Bedrock multisite URL fixer plugin: composer require roots/multisite-url-fixer
  • Link any subdomains to current site with Valet:
$ valet link test.bedrock-multisite
$ valet link site2.bedrock-multisite

# Subfolder / subdirectory installs

Config::define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
  • Visit https://bedrock-multisite.test/wp/wp-admin/network.php to install the network and select subfolder install
  • Add to .env: DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE=bedrock-multisite.test
  • Update config/application.php again with full multisite constants:
/**
 * Multisite
 */
Config::define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
Config::define('MULTISITE', true);
Config::define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);
Config::define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', env('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE'));
Config::define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', env('PATH_CURRENT_SITE') ?: '/');
Config::define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', env('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE') ?: 1);
Config::define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', env('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE') ?: 1);
  • Add the Bedrock multisite URL fixer plugin: composer require roots/multisite-url-fixer (Optional)

Thank you to Evan Mattson for contributing Bedrock's driver to Valet, and for creating the Valet WP-CLI command.

Thank you to Craig for the multisite subdirectory driver.
