I downloaded ERPNext VM sometime back and able to use on my machine. However, somehow suddenly I am unable to access the application. The VM is running is perfect 100% however i cannot access application from my browser
http://localhost:8080 (host machine). I am using Windows 7.
Any clue / workaround to resolve this?
@ahmed.suria – find out what the IP of your VM is and use that IP instead of localhost:8080.
tried but not working.
any other clue anyone?
I tried the VM on other machine, its working but not mine. I cannot change machine every time with this abnormal issue.
The issue is the IP number you are accessing it with.
http://localhost:8080 is used if you are accessing the app from within the VM
http://192.168.x.x:8080 is used if you are accessing the app from the host browser or another machine.
In your VM terminal check and see what the IP is and use that to access the app.
Follow these instructions if you still have problems.
Basically, if you are running EPRNext from a VirtualBox and wish to connect to it, the simplest way to do so is:
Go to Network settings in your VirtualBox Manager for the Virtual Device
Select Bridged Adapter
Select the type of connection you have, its either en1: Wi-Fi or en0: Ethernet
Save your settings
Start your Virtual Device
After you are logged in check what is the IP of your Virtual Device is by typing the command ifconfig in the terminal of your device.
Take the eth0 IP add…
