Download Virtual Machine Image


A software appliance in the form of a VMware image is available to allow novices to easily set up a Foswiki installation without knowing anything about it or the operating system it runs on. The virtual machine image is preconfigured and ready to run. It can be accessed with your browser

You should use this appliance if...
  • you are a novice to Foswiki, don't want to hassle with an installation or configuration
  • your OS is Windows and the native installation is somewhat slow or some Foswiki extensions have further Linux-related dependencies
  • you want to run your Foswiki in a virtualized environment.
You should be careful with running this VM appliance directly in a productive environment. The OS installation in this VM is simple. No further security audit has been done. Nonetheless you can use this VM as a starting point for your productive VM.

Be sure to change all the default passwords, including the webmin management server if using the VM in a production environment
