That been said and not considering myself a Linux expert at all. I was able to successful deploy TurnKey Linux LAMP 13.0 box on a VMware workstation 11. Upgrade the Webmin to the latest version at this time (v1.760). Install the latest VMware Tools available and finally mount shared folders. I will try to post later a tut on how I got everything working. But on this post I will focus on the topic. How to mount shared folders on the guest system AND use it as Apache2 Document Root.
I will assume the following considerations;
- You have install VMware workstation or Player 10, 11 or 12
- You have already installed VMware tools and it's tested to be working
- and you already have configured at least one shared folder in your VM settings.
Let's start! We will edit the following file with nano...
RESTART Apache -> service apache2 restart
