[EP-tech] Running EPrints in VirtualBox Localhost



Hello all!


I've recently started at the University of Lincoln as Research Information Services Developer and am currently trying to get to grips with EPrints. To test it out, I've set up a VirtualBox running Ubuntu on my machine and have run through the EPrints setup however I'm not sure how to actually access the site. I'm more accustomed to a Windows development environment and am suddenly feeling woefully out of my depth in Linux! The installation seemed to go okay and I thought I'd set the host to eprints.localhost, however when I try to access that FireFox on Ubuntu is determined to send me to www.eprints.localhost which is, of course, wrong. I'm sure I'm missing a step but if anyone could offer me pointers on getting test data set up for EPrints in a VirtualBox environment, I'd be incredibly grateful!


Best Regards,
