[bioontology-support] Bioportal virtual machine - configuration and documentation

Unfortunately the experts on this are out now and will not return until 
after the Stanford shutdown. I believe though that the only documentation we 
have is that available off of the download page for the VM. In general folks 
have found this to be sufficient - we field very few queries on this. I don’t 
know that we have any specific instructions for Ubuntu. There seem to be 
instructions here:

that may get you going.

The ncbo-appliance on initial boot asks for  a root password change and a 
number of VM configuration questions.

1. Do you have documentation regarding initial setup?

2. Do you have an installation script (such as vagrant) that would allow 
installation on Ubuntu?

Thank you

You should have access to this page now:

There are instructions there to use either a VMWare VM or an Amazon EC2

It is best to ask questions and report problems to support at
since the list is monitored by a number of developers.
