To set up A2SERVER, follow these steps:

  • Download and install VirtualBox. It's free. (If you prefer different virtual machine software, you can instead use the A2SERVER installer script.)

  • Download the A2SERVER virtual machine (~750 MB), or the A2SERVER+A2CLOUD virtual machine (~1.7 GB).

  • Open VirtualBox, and choose "Import Appliance..." from the File menu. Select the file you downloaded (A2SERVER.ova).

  • Leave the "Reinitialize the MAC address of all network cards" box unchecked. Click Import.

  • When it's done importing, click A2SERVER, then click Settings, then click Network.

  • Ensure that "Attached To:" is set to "Bridged Adapter".

  • Set "Name:" to a wired network interface on your computer. If you don't have one, use a USB-to-Ethernet adapter. (A2SERVER won't work over Wi-Fi in a virtual machine.)

  • Click OK.

    You're all set up. For next steps, check out the links on the A2SERVER home page.
