Running Apache and PHP on Windows with XAMPP or WAMP sucks, because installing new PHP extensions on Windows is very hard. Most binary releases for Windows don't work :(
So I was thinking to run Ubuntu from Virtuabox, and install Apache and PHP in Ubuntu.
What I am asking is if is it possible to set up the server in Ubuntu (the virtual box), and see it working in the browser under Windows.
So if I type "localhost" outside the VM, in Chrome/Win, it should display a webpage that is running under the Apache server from Ubuntu.
