Local development environment from a Droplet

Posted July 25, 2013 5.4k views
Is it possible to set up a virtual machine the same as one of the droplets? For example; I use VirtualBox and I'd like a local development environment which matches the Ubuntu 12.04 / LAMP droplet. I recently ran into issues with the CMS i was using due to the Droplets php disable_functions settings, and I'd like to be able to develop and test my software before deploying.

We currently do not support downloading snapshots. However, we are working on it and should have it up in the next 1-2 months.
