After installing from a WeBWorK Live DVD which only requires a few steps, you will have a full fledged Ubuntu system with WeBWorK, Apache2, MySQL, etc. installed and configured. If your network uses DHCP, networking will be automatically configured for your system. If it uses static IP addresses, you will have to configure networking. Also it is imperative that you CHANGE THE DEFAULT PASSWORDS for the OS users <code>root</code> and <code>wwadmin</code> (which has sudo privileges), for the MySQL users <code>root</code> and <code>webworkWrite</code>, and for the WeBWorK user <code>admin</code> which has professor privileges.

Overview[edit]

After installing from a WeBWorK Virtual Machine Image, you will have a full fledged Ubuntu Server LTS system with WeBWorK, Apache2, MySQL, R server, lighttpd, log rotation, etc. installed and configured. If your network uses DHCP, networking will be automatically configured for your system. If it uses static IP addresses, you will have to configure networking.

Current Virtual Machine Images[edit]

  • Installing_from_WW2.15_Ubuntu20.04_Server Virtual Machine Image: These instructions cover the installation of the Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS operating system and WeBWorK 2.15 using the WeBWorK Virtual Machine Image. It is imperative that you CHANGE THE DEFAULT PASSWORDS for the OS users root and wwadmin (which has sudo privileges), for the MySQL users root and webworkWrite, and for the WeBWorK user admin which has professor privileges. See the specific instructions below.
