Hi @proberts2 - you've pretty much hit the nail on the head
Create a fresh Debian wheezy virtual machine through BigV. Note the root password and login via SSH to the server.
Then, using your favourite editor, add the following to
deb http://symbiosis.bytemark.co.uk/wheezy-rc3 ./
apt-get install bytemark-symbiosis
Things to note during the installation:
- You'll be prompted to install packages that can't be authenticated: that's fine for now.
- Ensure you set a complex password for MySQL: you'll need this shortly.
- phpMyAdmin will offer to install itself using common settings - that's what I picked. It'll then ask you for your MySQL root password to make this happen.
- I also chose to allow it to create its own random password for its own user.
Once complete, you should have working Symbiosis wheezy RC3 install. Logout of
root and start using the
admin user; the password will initially be the same as root.
I've just tested the above myself as I needed to spin up a box, but let me know if you experience any problems
