Ruby on Rails



Running the Bitnami Rails Stack under VirtualBox

So according to the Bitnami VM FAQ

  • Edit /opt/bitnami/mysql/my.cnf to add the port specification so you can connect to the server without a local socket.
  • Add “Allow from all” to /opt/bitnami/apache2/apps/phpmyadmin/conf/phpmyadmin.conf. This enables access to mysqladmin from outside the VM.
  • Patch the firewall so you can maintain MySQL using SQLYog on the host box.
    • vi /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2
    • FW_SERVICES_EXT_TCP=”22 80 443″
    • Then it is necessary to restart the firewall:
    • # /etc/init.d/SuSEfirewall2_init restart
    • # /etc/init.d/SuSEfirewall2_setup restart
