     9 1. Harder: [http://www.gnumims.org/downloads/gnuMims.war Download WAR] and [http://www.gnumims.org/trac/export/935/trunk/gnuMims-config.groovy Config file] and deploy to a Java Servlet (as detailed bellow).
     10 1. Hardest: Download the source code and build a custom WAR with Grails (see the [wiki:DeveloperStartPage Developer Start Page] for this option).

    23    * May be handy to check that the Java server is working.
    24   * The production [http://www.gnumims.org/downloads/prod/gnuMimsLive.war WAR] is configured to use MySQL.
    25    * We currently use "Mysql-5.1.49" (Debian Squeeze: mysql-server-5.1)
