I have a lamp server and using drupal. The is on Ubuntu server 14.04. My drupal version is drupal 8.0.0 alpha 15. I followed this guide to install both: http://youtube.com/watch?v=zsPc_Tb8bI8
The problem is that I am running it on a server version, so there is no ui. No browser access in Ubuntu server. I can access my webserver via my host machine of the VM, by typing: 192.168.1.5 This bring up the default apache page of Ubuntu. When I do 192.168.1.5/drupal, I gives me an error (404 error). I already tried to set the www-data:www-data permission via chown, but this didn't work. Also, while browsing for answers I came across .htaccess file. I remember copying it somewhere, shown in the video. Where should I have copied it and what does it do?
My final(real) question: how do I access the drupal installation from another computer(not localhost). Do I need to set somethi ng in the apche conf? Also, what is .htaccess
