Host: WinXP SP3 | Guest: Debian Lenny (port forward probs)

Postby cnchybrid » 31. May 2009, 01:00

I installed

Host: Win XP SP3
VirtualBox 2.2.4 for Windows hosts x86/amd64
Guest: Linux Debian Lenny
Apache
MySQL
php
phpmyadmin

followed this tutorial: http://www.alexatnet.com/node/200
and fixed phpmyadmin from: http://my.opera.com/subjam/blog/install ... bian-lenny

everything worked well from the Debian Guest http:127.0.0.1 even http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin

then i wanted to access these pages from the host machine i.e Win XP

so i shutdown the Guest

and i opened the cmd from windows and ran these commands

cd C:\Program Files\Sun\xVM VirtualBox
VBoxManage setextradata Debian-Web "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/apache/HostPort" 8888
VBoxManage setextradata Debian-Web "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/apache/GuestPort" 80
VBoxManage setextradata Debian-Web "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/apache/Protocol" TCP
VBoxManage setextradata Debian-Web "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/HostPort" 2222
VBoxManage setextradata Debian-Web "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/GuestPort" 22
VBoxManage setextradata Debian-Web "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/Protocol" TCP


and verified that the entries are done well by

VBoxManage getextradata Debian-Web enumerate

Did you by chance also add Host-Only? Because 192.168.56.1 is that adapter. You could have accessed your VM through that too ;). But it works, that's all that matters.

The same setup worked fine for Guest Ubuntu 8.04 on the very same windows XP
These are the instructions I have entered in Ubuntu terminal

sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install php5
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
sudo apt-get install php5-mysql

Make phpmyadmin available in Apache

cd /
cd etc
cd apache2
sudo vi apache2.conf

paste near the includes

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

restart Apache


Remember the port forwarding must be done also from the VirtualBox so as for the websites to be accessed from the host.

If one wishes the site to be accessed from outside world check the firewall and port forwarding from the router (if u have one)

I hope this is of use

Regards
