I installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 on VmWare. I installed apache and php and then created a virtual directory, following these steps: http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorial/a-simple-debian-based-dev-environment
So, I now have a V-host foo.local. I wanted to see the results on my Win7 host, so I checked the IP-address with ifconfig and went there. Sadly, I'm only getting the standard "It Works" page. How can I view my vhost?
EDIT: when I say "Virtual host", I mean the PHP website. I do not mean my Guest OS Ubuntu Server. That is the Virtual Machine, on which the Virtual Host is running.
I can reach the Machine, I can't reach the specific host on it.
EDIT2: solved. I initially thought this wouldn't work. Adding the line to the hosts file did it, I was under the impression that all the hosts file does is redirect something to an IP-address. So if I'm going to 192.168.53.84 manually or telling the hosts file that foo.local points to it, I thought there would be no difference, because Win7 doesn't know what's on the Ubuntu Server. Only that it exists... oh well...
