Virtual Host confusion

pepebe290572's picture

I set up a virtual host for www.example.dev on my system. (Document root for this site is /home/root/Sites/www.example.dev, Port:80, ).

My system:

ubuntu 10.04

virtualbox 3.2.6



I think, that I was basically successful, because on the client side, I can use "w3m http://www.example.dev" from "shell in a box" and get the expected result.


Unfortunately, on the host side I always get a  "server not found" message.


I know I did this before but can't remember how it was done.


Any ideas?


Kind regards,
