I have the mediawiki and fileserver appliances running on a server at work. The mediawiki is running perfectly, but I am having issues with the fileserver. Both are being run by virtualbox, but what I cannot seem to achieve is "mounting" external folders such that they can be accessed by the fileserver VM.
I've done the normal thing for virtualbox; addedd the path to the folders I want the VM to "see" to the VM setup. However, when I start the file server, these folders do not appear to be mounted anywhere. I've searched the forums to no avail. It is quite critical this works, as the main storage for the server is an expandable, rack-mounted system that the host machine actually controls. Ergo, not being able to access the "folder" on the guest where these drives are mounted means that the file server doesn't have access to the place where files are to be stored.
I suspect I need to add the virtualbox guest additions, although my first attempt at doing that permenetly screwed up the file server (no boot after install; thank goodness it was a VM).
Any advice is appreciated.
