This section is dedicated to special VA-solutions for users and developers of web systems who are installing Bitrix24 software for evaluation or migration to Bitrix Virtual Appliance. Such users can transfer projects from a remote website to Virtual Appliance, migrate projects between different VAs, etc.

Bitrix Virtual Appliance saves time and effort for Bitrix24 product-based site or intranet data resource deployment and administration.

Bitrix Virtual Appliance is a free software product, a ready-to-use and fully configured, tested and adapted virtual server for optimal performance with both Bitrix24 products and any PHP applications.

Chapters, dedicated to Bitrix Virtual Appliance (VA) and Bitrix Web Environment (BitrixEnv) are equally applicable to installation and launch of both services.

Solutions to optimize Bitrix24 products:

    Attention! This learning course lists all host, server names, e-mail, IP- addresses and similar information as an example. It is necessary to use your own data during installation of Virtual Appliance.

    Attention! If the default (password-protected) SSL-sertificate in BitrixVA or in BitrixEnv is modified, it causes problems in the wizards and server re-launch operation. Password input will be requested continuously. To avoid such problems, password should be deleted from the certificate:
    /path/to/openssl rsa -in /path/to/originalkeywithpass.key -out /path/to/newkeywithnopass.key
