    Apache to share htdocs and mysql with windows and ubuntu?


    Hi im a complete newbie so bare with me

    I have installed xampp on my windows and ubuntu partitions. Now I would like xampp on linux to share htdocs and mysql databases on my windows so I dont have to keep drag and dropping files and overwriting files I needed

    Can this be done as I can read my windows partition from linux???? And if it can please could you guide me through the process.

    Many Thanks

    Are both systems running at the same moment? With a virtual machine?
    Or do you choose during starting?

    I am guessing you choose during start.
    So you need to mount the windows partition in Linux ... you may need too add an entry into /etc/fstab
    Then you can change the settings from mysql and apache to the folder of the htdocs and database from windows.
    The Apache settings should be in an folder like "/etc/apache/sites-enabled"
    I don't know the setting folder from mysql ... just search in /etc/

    Hope that helped you.

    If someone could go into a little bit more detail for me I would really help me, like I said I'm a new to all this.

    Thanks again
