Keep running wiki server on Linux while in Windows?


Hi,

I am sure somebody must have already found a solution to this problem.

I have a Dual boot machine: Debian/Windows XP

I have a mediawiki running on Debian and my users can access it. However sometimes I need to boot into Windows to do some work. Now currently during the time I am in Windows nobody can access wiki. Is there any way by which I can make the wiki accessible to my users even while I am in Windows?

Not if you have it on the same machine. You should move it to a dedicated machine. Unless, you set up the wiki on a separate partition accessible to both OSes - you'd still lose it for a short while every time you rebooted, but it would be available once either OS has booted.

You could run windows in a VM. That way you would never have to shut down Linux.

hmm I was trying to avoid using virtualization. However suppose if I have to use a VM software, which one would you recommend?

I am no expert on it by any means but the one I have used (quite a while ago) is VMware. It still seems to be pretty popular.

VirtualBox is also good for home use.
