I've setup a virtual machine with Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop 64bit & installed Lamp. I can place files in the var/www/ directory and have them show up in my host OS's web browser as well as the Guest OS's web browser. I'm trying to install Simple Machine Forums to the VM, however I'm not really sure what to do. So far I've added the downloaded full version of SMF to the www directory in a sub folder "var/www/post/pages/home/", and I've made a database in phpmyadmin "post_smf_1", however I don't know how to configure the database or anything or do whatever is next to get the forum to install. When I go to install.php in my webbrowser I get a white blank page. Can anyone help?
(ps: I will not be using a domain name, just an ip, I'm assuming that's possible?)
The goal here is to setup a VM webserver that runs an installation of simple machine forums on my local network. So that when I type in xxx.xxx.x.x/post/pages/home/ I will get my forums.
Thanks for reading.
