I've had apache/php/mysql installed for the past several years on my Windows laptop (now running windows 7). I recently installed ubuntu 10 using wubi and, after installing apache php and mysql, I figured out how to point my localhost (whether I was booted on ubuntu or windows) to the same directory (albeit running slightly different versions of php).

Is it possible if I am booted on ubuntu to set php to access the mysql data on windows (in the /host/ folder) rather than having to maintain separate mysql databases for the same sites (one when running apache on windows and one when running apache on ubuntu)?

Thanks in advance.
