Moodle 2.0.2 Turnkey Linux newbie questions

Hi Guys
Fantastic work on TurnKey Linux. Sadly couple of COMPLETE newbie questions....

1. Moodle 2.0.2 /urls (404)
- I can access default moodle install http://222.73.10.192
- When I try to access http://222.73.10.192/index.html or http://222.73.10.192/test/test.html (by example) it returns a 404 error, for pages which exist
(I have tried to google around/search forums - Could this be a Apache 'httpd.conf'  if so what settings/ how would I apply to enable viewing of any webpages/paths

In our other server (running live moodle), we have a /html set up like follows;
(Public URLs) /var/www/html/Moodle2.1/
(Data) /var/www/Moodle2.1Data

Currently the set up is as follows from install (which is obviously fine) prosuming I can access 222.73.10.192/paths/file.xxx
/var/www/moodle
/var/www/moodledata
 

2. Accessing admin (Error reading database)
http://222.73.10.192/

admin/3mm4
- On access it returns a error reading database on default install- Unsure of issue (possible point 3?)

3. http's'
When I login on item 2 (I notice the url changes to https://222.73.10.192/user/edit.php
Should I be turning off HTTPS setting somewhere? is this causing conflicts

4. Moodle Update approach
Our existing system is using a newer moodle, Hence my ultimate goal (after above) is to update to Moodle 2.1.1 - which approach would anyone recommend?
A) I install a LAMP turnkey stack (and add Moodle 2.1.1 in conventional way)
B) I keep Turnkey 2.0.2 and then add http://222.73.10.192/moodle2.1.1
C) Other?

Not sure if it helps to point out the following IP for Vmware
https://222.73.10.191/

Sorry for the low level of questions, all this is completely new to me area for me, just trying my best to adopt a VM turnkey solution, which is very appealing in its approach.

Thanks for reading this far. Any help appreicated
