I tried to install LAMP VM on VMware free server, but it failed.
Sorry, I assumed that it would be obvious that the version is different. Here's the message:
Unable to add virtual machine "/var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines/turnkey-lamp-2009.10-hardy-x86/turnkey-lamp-2009.10-hardy-x86.vmx" to the inventory:
Configuration file was created by a VMware product with more features than this version
I updated my version of the (free) server to 1.06.
I updated the server and still got the same message. That's why I used the iso image.
