I just installed the Joomla 2.5 stack for OpenSuse in VirtualBox. This all went according to plan and I got the stack imported and running. However, when I try to access Joomla from a browser it tries for around half a minute, then comes up with a 'Could Not Connect' error.
I'm using the IP address showing at the Bitnami login screen and have also checked it with 'ifconfig'.
I also tried setting up the recommended ports in the OpenSuse firewall: FW_SERVICES_EXT_TCP="22 80 443" and then restarted both the firewall and Bitnami, but this had no effect.
Am I missing something obvious here?

Did you configured the network virtual machine as "bridge"? This is necessary to have an accessible IP address. Could you check that the servers are running?
$ sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh status

Thanks for that Beltran. I'll try your suggestions out. I first have to re-install the VM, as it crashed when I ran it this morning.

I just reinstalled the stack and then went into Settings/Network and selected the attached network adapter as 'Bridged Adapter' eth0. However, when I then started the machine, I saw several errors during boot, saying 'Cannot find device eth0' and 'Cannot start eth0', 'Interface eth0 is not up'. There is also an error message saying 'Failed services in run level 3: network bitnami-stats-chron'
I get the same errors if I try the setting as NAT, which was the setting I used previously. This originally had no errors during boot, but I was unable to access the Joomla server, as I previously mentioned.
It appears that when I deleted the original VM installation, something got left behind which is causing the current problem.

Solved it. There were still some folders left from the original installation, which I deleted. Then ran a fresh install and selected the Bridged Adaptor as recommended. Everything worked!
Many thanks for the help.
