Join Jon Peck for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the virtual machine (VM), part of Learning Linux for PHP Developers.
…Let's open VirtualBox.…The very first thing we'll see is the Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager interface.…At the top there are number of controls for managing virtual machines.…New will create a VM, Settings is for configuration,…Start will boot a VM, and Discard deletes the VM.…Underneath that on the left is a list of all…the virtual machines in your system, which is currently empty.…We're going to have to do something about that.…Click New to create a new virtual machine, which will bring…us to a wizard that will walk us through the VM creation.…
First, we'll specify a descriptive name to identify the new virtual machine.…I'm going to set the name Sandbox.…The type is the operating system that we plan on installing, which, in…our case, is Linux and the version, in our case, is Ubuntu 64 bit.…Specifying the type and version doesn't actually install the…operating system, but it does set the label and icon.…Click Continue.…The guest virtual machine consumes resources from the host and…the amount of memory or RAM needs to be specified.…
