Installing WeBWorK from a Live DVD
These instructions cover the installation
of the Ubuntu Linux 10.04 operating system and WeBWorK 2.4 using the WeBWorK Live DVD. This Live DVD is for 64 bit computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2, Core i7, etc). If you have an older system use the Installing from WW2.4_Ubuntu9.10_Vanilla_LiveDVD.
This "vanilla" version of the server should work find for smaller installations (say a 1000 users or less). There will be a "production" version that adds things like lighttpd, log rotations, etc that are useful for larger installations and/or slower servers. Note that you can always start with the vanilla version and make additions or changes after setting up your server.
