This tutorial taught me how to create an Ubuntu Server (12.10, 64-bit) VM in VirtualBox on a Windows 7 host machine, install Apache and have it serve a site from a dummy domain accessible via the host machine's browser.
It took a day and many attempts (although it seemed I was following the instructions as they were laid out, I was always doing something wrong) and I'd finally done it.
I find Ubuntu as a much seamless development environment than Windows, and so I wanted to same thing on Ubuntu. So, this time, I created an Ubuntu Server VM in VirtualBox on Ubuntu host machine, installed Apache and configured it. But when I access the site via the dummy domain, I get the 'Server not found' error.
Yes, I did modify the
/etc/hosts file just as mentioned in the tutorial (which is for Windows 7). But I couldn't get it to work. Don't know what's wrong. Anyone know what else I should be doing?
EDIT: If I am not clear enough, please ask. I am willing to clarify.
