Ok, so the debian install went simply. I used debian 9 (Stretch), without a
addr' gives 192.168.1.101, which sounds right, as that's my lan,
I then followed the instructions on https://apt.ledgersmb.org/index.html
but I installed version 1.5, and did not add the 'test component', I don't
know what that means, sorry.
I was able to add the DB admin user where the prompt
comes up: Now do I
need to reset/config mysql's root user and password also?
So from my desktop I tried to access via firefox
192.168.1.101:5762/setup.pl, but it's unable to connect.
Ok. Are you able to ping that ip address from your desktop? That should
indicate if you should expect to be able to connect to the web server as
I have the VM network set to bridged, networking is my
downfall, and the
other thing I suspect is that I need to open the firewall for the webserver.
Bridged sounds fine. quick question: Is the "eth0" (or enpXs0 with X a
number) network on the VM's host part of the bridge? If not, you probably
need to enable IP forwarding. Before we go that route, lets start by
checking you can 'ping' the address though. (And: can you ping the host
that the VM is running on?)
All advice appreciated.
