Re: [OCLUG-Tech] linking to files inside debootstrap

Possibly I have misunderstood the debootstrap and that it is running the
same kernel and different libraries and apps only. I thought it was
running a whole VM. I set it up in a roaring hurry to get a mission
critical tool working in time for 1400 students to use "yesterday".

I needed to run an "old" Apache, php and mysql because of some changes
in php since codes were written about 4 years ago. So I've got "woody"
running under debootstrap, and have switched off Apache in the outer
machine, but want sshd to run in both, which I now have going.

Cheers, JN
