I created a lamp (Linux Apache Mysql PHP) installation on a home computer. I downloaded a package known as ilias and extracted it in document root as
now when ever I try to install it as per instructions http:///ilias/
I see the directory ilias getting downloaded as a bundle of zip files on my local machine.
How ever when I go the computer where it is actually installed and there I do http://localhost/ilias
then I can see the installation screen.
I am not able to understand why is this happening. Following is my vhost configuration
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost ServerName localhost DocumentRoot /var/www/ <Directory /var/www/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit, # alert, emerg. LogLevel warn CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined </VirtualHost> ~
Here is apache log when I access the site on machine where it actually is as hxxp://localhost
127.0.0.1 - - [04/Feb/2011:22:18:29 +0530] "GET /ilias/templates/default/images/ButtonsBack.gif HTTP/1.1" 304 - "http://localhost/ilias/templates/default/delos.css" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/2009033100 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.8"
but when I do http://192.168.43.129/ilias/
I do not see any entry in /var/log/apache2/access.log . The most surprising part of this problem is I have installed Ubuntu in a Vmware running on a Laptop. The IP of Guest Ubuntu is 192.168.43.129 and that of host Ubuntu is 192.168.1.3
