configured to any upstream services, we can do all that via the dashboard (in fact, this is recommended, because there is not system to import file-based
configurations at the moment).
[There's a demo setup for vagrant](../../v1.6/setup/vagrant-setup) if you're keen on testing Tyk and tyk dashboard without having to muddle through
