I posted all the necessary information at the torrent page.
You can download the torrent at The Pirate Bay: VMWare Image with Magento and Ubuntu Server 7.04

If you don’t know which BitTorrent Client to use, try uTorrent. A very small, quick and user friendly torrent client. You can choose to install it (it will ask you), but if you choose “cancel”, then it will run standalone.

I had some problems getting the torrent to work, but finally it works.
You can start downloading.

To get this virtual machine up and running view the guide at anandgraves.com.

I’ve also uploaded the virtual machine to MegaUpload for a direct download. You can find the download link also in this guide.

Tried it and got it up and running. Could even reach the base directory. BUT since my ISP does the routing to my computers I can’t use the static ip solution. Is it really not possible to get the magento directories to work on the DHCP ip just like the base directory?

This is awesome. I’m a big fan 0f virtualization and VMWare. I’m downloading it right now. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Thanks!

Hi Benjamin,

By default it uses DHCP. So just use the command

ifconfig
to see what your assigned ip address is and type it in your browser. For example: http://192.168.1.23/magento/

Have you tried using the static ip address and editing

/etc/network/interfaces

Hi - yeah, I got it working with DHCP, no problem, but I could only go as far as the web root, as soon as I tried to enter a directory it started looking for that static ip - and I can’t do that since I don’t operate my own router and my ISPs router won’t accept that static IP, since, well, I don’t have it:)

BTW. This VM will not open with VMWare Server. You gotta have the Player or Workstation in order to run it. I spent a lot of time trying to downgrade the VM, and nothing I tried worked. I then installed the Trial version of VMWare Workstation and it all worked like a charm.

This was great for testing, but I was having problems with the system after a couple of hours. I have no clue what cause the problems. But, the system became very unstable.

In the end, I decided to create my own VM. I’ve been happy with it ever since.

Thank you for creating and posting this VM.

Cheers!
