After installation you can open http://localhost:8080/ in your web browser. Default login/password is biowardrobe/biowardrobe for both OS and BioWardrobe web.

Add existing image into VirtualBox. Choose "Machine->Add" in the menu.
After installation you can open http://localhost:8080/ in your web browser. Default login/password is biowardrobe/biowardrobe for both OS and BioWardrobe web.
You can change default 8080 port if it is used by other programs.
Virtual Machine does not start¶
If Virtual Box produces an error saying that VT-x (virtualization) is disabled in BIOS, you need to enable it.
To enable VTX, restart the computer and hold the Del or F10 key to enter BIOS. Virtualization can be found under Security or Advanced headings in BIOS parameters.
