a writeup I’m following says to save file “in VM”, the official guide says to just save it, doesn’t say where.

  • save the file in /var/www/html/ or wherever you have configured apache to serve files from
  • use a different port (e.g. python3 -m http.server 8088) and then modify the request to use
