NOTES → Phalcon 2.0 Install with Virtual Box Running CentOS 6.6 on a Windows 7 Machine


These are my notes for installing CentOS 6.6 on a VM in Virtual Box and configuring my dev environment. This is not a tutorial, just a bunch of notes, that maybe will help you to configure yours if you run into problems. Good luck.


  1. Downloaded CentOS Minimum iso from
  2. Downloaded and installed Virtual Box on my local machine
  3. Created a new VM with 2gb of RAM and a 8GB HD
  4. Linked the Controller :IDE (Settings → Storage) to my CentOS iso
  5. Ran VM and followed the installation prompts for CentOS
  6. Added new user to CentOS
  7. Installed the packages listed on :
  8. Was getting this issue: PYCURL ERROR 6 — “Couldn’t resolve host ‘’”
  9. Fixed the issue by going to my network config file for my adapter /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (← That’s a zero)
  10. Changed the NM_CONTROLLED to no. Saved Changes
  11. Reset the network adapter:
ifdown eth0
ifup eth0
  1. Then went into Apache’s httpd.conf file in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and enabled Virtual Hosts (see its a great tutorial on how to set these up
  2. Then I had to change the file /etc/selinux/config file and changed selinux to disabled

3. saved the file

4. I also had to changed on Virtual Box’s Network settings to Bridged Connection. This allowd me to get a IP address from the router.

then I had to disable iptables so that my dev environment wouldn’t block incoming traffic on the network

sudo service iptables stop

4. once I did this, everything seems to work

EDIT: And after all of this, I found out that we are using Unbuntu lol. Go figure!
