I had to reinstall appliance50 because I wasn't able to choose preferences for gedit. I then downloaded pset8.zip and pset8.sql again and tried to load the table places into phpmyadmin. http://pset8/phpmyadmin wouldn't load with the error: "The server at pset8 can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed.". Now I'm unable to test 'import'. Can anybody help me? Thanks! Fritz
the answer is of course to ensure that
/etc/hosts is updated per the specs. see the "Getting Started" section!
Next, in a terminal window, execute
sudo gedit /etc/hosts
in order to run gedit as the appliance’s "superuser" (aka "root") so that you can edit what’s otherwise a read-only file. Carefully add this line at the bottom of that file, which will associate pset8 with the appliance’s "loopback" address (which won’t ever change):
Then save the file and quit gedit.
