    33= Setting up a BOINC server = #ServerIntro
     4
     5The easiest way to set up a BOINC server is in the
     6[wiki:CloudServer Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud].
     7The hardware and most of the software issues are taken care of for you.
     8Eventually you'll have to pay Amazon,
     9but even then it may be cheaper than using your own hardware.
     10
     11If you choose to use your own hardware, there are several software options:
     12
     13 * Use a [wiki:VmServer BOINC server VM] that we've created for that purpose,
     14  with all the necessary software already installed.
     15  You can run this virtual machine using
     16  [https://www.virtualbox.org/ VirtualBox]
     17  on any Intel-based computer (Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X).
     18
     19 * Debian and Ubuntu offer a "boinc-server-maker" package to create
     20   BOINC projects more easily on local or remote machines.
     21   This ongoing effort is described
     22   [http://wiki.debian.org/BOINC/ServerGuide here].
     23
     24 * Build BOINC from source on your own system.
     25   You can use any Unix system as a BOINC server;
     26   we recommend using a recent Linux release.
     27   Disable SELinux. General instructions are given below,
     28   followed by a [wiki:ServerIntro#CookbookforDebian6.0 cookbook for setting up a BOINC server on a Debian 6.0 system].
     29
    430== Hardware ==
    531For experimentation and debugging,
     
    2248
    2349Info on increasing capacity and reliability is [wiki:MultiHost here].
    24 
    25 Another approach - which eliminates both hardware and software issues -
    26 is to deploy a BOINC server on the
    27 [wiki:CloudServer Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud].
    28 
    29 == Software ==
    30 There are several ways to deploy the BOINC server software:
    31 
    32  * The easiest way to set up a BOINC server is to use a
    33   [wiki:VmServer BOINC server VM] that we've created for that purpose,
    34   with all the necessary software already installed.
    35   You can run this virtual machine using
    36   [https://www.virtualbox.org/ VirtualBox]
    37   on any Intel-based computer (Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X).
    38   If you take this approach, skip the rest of this page.
    39 
    40  * Debian and Ubuntu offer a "boinc-server-maker" package to create
    41    BOINC projects more easily on local or remote machines.
    42    This ongoing effort is described here:
    43    [http://wiki.debian.org/BOINC/ServerGuide Wiki].
    44    Again, if you take this approach, skip the rest of this page.
    45 
    46  * You can use any Unix system as a BOINC server;
    47    we recommend using a recent Linux release.
    48    Disable SELinux. General instructions are given below,
    49    followed by a [wiki:ServerIntro#CookbookforDebian6.0 cookbook
    50    for setting up a BOINC server on a Debian 6.0 system].
