How to configure Ubuntu 12.04 SERVER and Virtual Box to access Odoo from Host System
Hi guys, this questions relates to André Schenkels answer on https://www.odoo.com/forum/Help-1/question/How-to-install-OpenERP-V70-on-Ubuntu-1204-from-launchpad-repository-2562.
But as you can see his anser did't really answered the question asked (because it related to launchpad). So I wanna move my one of my three questions here. (I would not delete the questions from the original post, because they directly relate to this). But this question has to be asked, because I'm new to Ubuntu Server, must know the answer and can't find the answer (or do not know where to search properly)
I'm using virtual box in order to configure Ubuntu 12.04 Server. I'm hosting Wordpress there, configured Port Forwarding for HTTP(8080/80), SSH(2222,22). So I configured the Apache Server in order to get access via Virtual box guest addition. And I can call wordpress from my host machine with: wordpress.dev:8080
but! How can I access odoo? what IP or DNS do I have to choose and how can I configure the dns? For wordpress in configured /apache2/sites-available/wordpress.dev
I'm not using ubuntu this long in order to deploy applications. So when everyone says http://[ip or dns name of server]:8069. What server is meant? The new odoo server and not the apache2 have running anyway right?
So where do I get a dns for that?
Don't I have to create a port in virtual host (port forwarding)
(Because as I can see in the most Video tutorials on youtube most people use ubuntu desktop and after odoo installation they call odoo from their guest machine, what is boring in a way. Calling it from the host computer would be cooler)
