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.
