I have been using WAMP for a while on windows and I thought it was about time I moved over to a full server environment on linux. I chose ubuntu and I have installed and configured as a virtual machine (using VirtualBox).
However, I am moving from WAMP and I have 1 serious issue:
In WAMP I could simply go to c:\wamp\www and edit files directly. With my virtual machine I now have to upload files to this 'virtual' server. VirtualBox uses .vdi for the disk (which I barely understand) and I've found a single product which might mount this.
Would that be a satisfactory solution? Is there a better way of doing this?
I have tried to configure shared folders via VirtualBox but my take is that this is only reliable for sharing from host >> guest, and not guest >> host.
Is there any other virtual machine software which can effectively allow me to migrate quite easily from WAMP to ubuntu?
Appreciate any advice!
