Windows 7: Virtual Box ubuntu xamp server

16 Jan 2016   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Virtual Box ubuntu xamp server

I have win 7 ultimate as host with wamp server on it.
Also virtualbox with ubuntu as guest.
I would like to download and install Xamp server on guest which is ubuntu.
Shall it be done the same way as I installed wamp on host? Do I have to consider a new port for Xamp?
And if there are other issues I have to take care of kindly let me know.
Thanks ahead
Kian William

Since they're effectively different "computers", same port will do, as those will be running in different hosts anyway. If you want to access the guess server from the host make sure you do a port forwarding on NAT setting or use bridged network on VirtualBox.
Otherwise they behave exactly the same way, as if it were a real system.

Virtual PC and Ubuntu 11.04
G'day, I've decided to expand my boundaries, and experiment with both virtualisation and Linux. This is something completely new to me as I have never attempted to use either before. I propose to follow Kari's excellent tutorial for the task: ...

Virtual PC Beta for Ubuntu
Is it possible to use the Virtual PC Beta in 7 for another OS? From my understanding, previous versions of VPC use software virtualisation while this beta uses hardware virtualisation, so it's better for testing other operating systems.
