Vst through guitar amp

Hi

I know this is ideally done with a reamp box but I don't have one and I cannot afford one. So, how do I play a vst through my amp without a reamp box?
I remember seeing my old flat mate doing it all the time but I can't remember what he plugged into what.

Do I just run a lead from a mic input on my interface into the input on my amp? Or into the effects send or effects return of the amp?

Also what do I change on logic to do this?
Basically I wanna mic the amp to get more realistic roomy sounds.
Thanks

I'm guessing my interface has a line output then, Id22, I'll have a look. I just don't wanna do something wrong and blow my amp

Yes you would run out of your line out, to the input of your amp. So you unplug your monitors. You set up a mic, the xlr cable from that goes in to your preamp, or straight in to interface input. Once you get your amp volume right, you set the levels. You play your track thru amp and hit record in DAW.

I've heard you can do it with a regular DI box, hooked up in reverse, but theres a major volume adjustment. Id Imagine you could wreck your amp if you just plug it straight in, so let someone chime in who knows electronics pretty well before you try that.
