TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Newbie Question

Hi All

I just found Turnkey yesterday and oh boy, what can i say but OH COOL ... Anyway, i have Xubuntu as my Host Box with Virtualbox installed.  I have installed Lamp Turnkey and now i'd like to get started, so my question is if i am working wth Eclipse on my Host Box, how do i upload my webfiles to my my guest server ?

I am using Flex Linux in eclipse !

Many Thanks

IMO SFTP is the easiest way to upload files

I know nothing about Eclipse or Flex but SFTP is the way to go for files. On both Windows & Ubuntu I use Filezilla - from GetDeb under Ubuntu (the site is down at the moment see here). But I'm sure there are other options from the normal repos. I just like using a cross platform solution.

VB shared folder is useful, too

You can also add Virtual Box shared folder - e.g. read-only directory on your host in which you have your source code or Eclipse project. VB shared folder requires VirtualBox Guest Additions installed on your guest OS.

Thanks for the advice ... I

Thanks for the advice ... I have filezilla already installed, so thats not a problem.  As for VB Guest Additions you need to have xorg etc installed and i did not wish to go that route.  So have reinstalled lamp locally for my dev server, but will keep the turnkey appliances for testing

Many Thanks
