VMware appliance "OXID eShop on Debian Etch" Beta

Hi all,
I just finished a VMware image “OXID eShop on Debian Etch”.
The great thing about it is that all you need is to download the

freely available VMware Player

to load the image that gives you a full Web server plus OXID eShop ready for testing.
You will find a detailled installation guide inside the package.
I deeply appreciate any comments and feedback in this thread!
You can download the VMware image at:



Dennis and worner asked (in German, that’s why I deleted the comments) how to change the keyboard layout.

a) Login to your VMware using Putty
b) Try this: $: dpkg-reconfigure console-data (link)

As this is an international forum I would appreciate it if you write English comments only. I started a German thread with the same topic here:http://www.oxid-esales.com/de/resources/forum/allgemeines/vmware-appliance-oxid-eshop-debian-etch-beta

Thanks for your understanding.
