hi, what if I want to add a second VM to virtual box? How should I set the IP?

Hi Andes, I'm sorry I don't get you. Can you explain what you meant please?

Wen Andes said...

sorry~hah. I mean in the alpha version, if we want to set up two virtual machines in the virtual box, we have to set two "host-only" network adaptors. but in the beta version, the user guide docs doesn't metion this.And also the ip is changed from "172.14.0.254" to "192.168.92.1". I don't quite understand about the virtual box network setting, so if I want to add a second VM to virtual box, should I add a new "host-only" network adaptor#2?
second, I met a problem after subscribing a php cartridge. I can't access to the page with the url. According to the doc, I had set the /etc/host file with "ip myphp.php.wso2.com", but still not work.someone said the resolve.conf file also had to be changed, but he didn't tell what to do? would you please help point out the secret? :)
