I’ve made a new VMWare image running Openmeetings, V1.6 RC1, available here (the previous one is still available here). There is also a how-to that I made during the VMWare image creation, if you are interested.
The operating system is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Edition, the login credentials are administrator / password. The same username and password was used for the Openmeetings login. MySQL root password is password. Openmeetings database user credentials are openmeetings / password. All functions are configured, including OpenOffice server for document conversion.
When starting the VM, VMWare will ask if the VM was moved or copied. I suggest to choose ‘moved’, if you choose ‘copied’, VMWare will create a new MAC Address for the network interface and the VM will start with no network interface (it has to be manually reconfigured to match the new MAC Address)
The VM is using DHCP (you will have to execute ifconfig to know its IP address and have a DHCP server running in your network). If you need to configure a fixed IP address you have to manually reconfigure the network interface.
After having the image running, use the following URL to access it: http://[ip address]:5080/openmeetings
Login using the credentials administrator / password
Choose the tab “Administration” and then “Configuration”. Now configure at least the SMTP server, port, system email address, email username and email userpass to enable the email notifications.
