    I followed all the steps in the article "Running Simple Groupware On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10" (http://www.howtoforge.com/running-simple-groupware-on-nginx-lemp-on-debian-squeeze-ubuntu-11.10). However when I enter address http://www.example.com/sgs_installer.php, suggested by the author to launch the web-based installer, and the browser immediately takes me to http://www.iana.org/domains/example/. What should I do so that the browser would take me to local www.example.com instead of the external one?

    Thank you Falko, it finally worked! But at first I had to overcome confusion of understanding what do you call "client computer" - because I thought of this client computer as a host, since I installed the server in the VBox. Host to VBox, but client to server. :) IMHO you should put this explanation in your excellent tutorials.
