I'm trying to get running Damn Vulnerable Web Application in a virtual machine with Wheezy. The easy way if it was 32 bits is install XAMPP and copy the dvwa to htdocs. However I'm using 64 bits and I don't wanna be messing with 32 bits libs.

I've installed every needed component separately. I installed php5, mysql and apache2. Then I copied dvwa to /var/www/ but when I try to access it ( I get always a blank page.

I have never configured a web server so maybe I'm skipping something. I installed dvwa with xampp in a W7, and all was fine, so seems it's a missconfiguration in apache or something.

What does the apache error log say? – jordanm Feb 7 '13 at 17:04
There is no error, just blank page. – Ayozint Feb 7 '13 at 19:01

I've had same issue. After some troubleshooting I found out that I don't have php5-mysql installed. So to fix this issue just install php5-mysql

sudo apt-get install php5-mysql

and restart web service
