    77 * The easiest (and recommended) way to set up a BOINC server is to use a [VirtualMachines virtual machine] that we've created for that purpose, with all the necessary software already installed.  You can run this virtual machine using the [http://www.vmware.com/download/player/ VMWare player] and any Intel-based computer (Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X).  If you take this approach, skip the rest of this page.

    9  * A BOINC server package is available for [http://svn.debian.org/viewsvn/pkg-boinc/branches/boinc/experimental/debian/ Debian].  If anyone is interested in helping maintaining a boinc-server package for Debian, please contact pkg-boinc-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org.

    19 By default, the directories created by user apache are not world-writeable. This causes problems: for example, when the file upload handler creates a directory in the [DirHierarchy upload hierarchy], it's owned by (apache, apache), and the [FileDeleter file deleter] (which runs as `boincadm`) won't be able to delete the files there.
