If you want to connect to Vagrant MySQL server with MySQL Workbench in host machine, you will need to follow steps below.



# -*- mode: ruby -*-
# vi: set ft=ruby :

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
config.vm.box = "ubuntu/trusty64"

config.vm.define :symfony do |symfony_config|
symfony_config.vm.hostname = 'symfony'
symfony_config.vm.network "private_network", ip: ""

config.vm.provider :virtualbox do |virtualbox_config|
virtualbox_config.name = "Symfony - Ubuntu 14.04"

config.vm.synced_folder "", "/var/www/html", nfs: true, mount_options: ["actimeo=2"]

Run vagrant box

Pay attention to SSH info below.

$ vagrant up
Bringing machine 'symfony' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
==> symfony: Forwarding ports...
symfony: 22 (guest) => 2222 (host) (adapter 1)

==> symfony: Waiting for machine to boot. This may take a few minutes...
symfony: SSH address:
