May 2014 virtual machines released

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just released the May 2014 Virtual Machine images of the MusicBrainz server!

If you’d like to direct download or BitTorrent download these images, head on over to our Server Setup page.

There have been no real changes to the setup of the VM images — we still publish a VirtualBox and a VMWare image. The instructions for using the VMs haven’t changed; the latest data and the May 26th version of the software are loaded on these images.

Have fun!

    Thank you very much!
    Does this VM image already include a ready-to-use search index?
    Is the disc size now big enough to replicate new data and to reindex them?

    Ah, shucks. Posted my comment on the wrong blog post instead of here–sorry about that. Anyway, I downloaded this from both the FTP site and the torrent and verified the md5 of both. I’m getting an error for both. Perhaps it’s corrupt?

    Here’s the exact error:

    Failed to import appliance E:\ServerFolders\Downloads\musicbrainz-server-2014-05-14.ova.

    Seeking within the archive failed (VERR_TAR_CHKSUM_MISMATCH).

    Result Code: VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR (0x80BB0005)
    Component: Appliance
    Interface: IAppliance {3059cf9e-25c7-4f0b-9fa5-3c42e441670b}

    Never mind! Turns out I just needed to update my VirtualBox installation. Ignore that last comment.
