Is it possible to install WEbMO and say Gaussian on the Google Compute Engine (which runs CentOS linux)? Has anyone done this successfully? http://cloud.google.com

This is a REALLY interesting idea. I will have to consider this in the future to see how this might work to create scalable WebMO installation in the cloud.

I am considering using the Google cloud computing approach with Gaussian 09 on a CentOS 7 VM. Is setting up my binary the same as the Linux binary instructions that used to be posted in the Support section?

Yes, the instructions should be the same, unless there are any CentOS 7 issues with Gaussian (for example). But Google Compute should behave effectively identical to any other Centos 7 machine

Following the instructions provided i the "Support and Tutorials" section, I was able to set up the Google Cloud account, Create a new project, Create an Instance, Download sitc.tar.gz, but then I got the following command line error message when running the sitc install script
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Set up a WebMO user? [y/n]:
I did not proceed with setting up a WebMO user given the messages. Any ideas?

I get the same error message if I cd to /tmp and try
tar xzf WebMO.tar.gz
on the file directly

The WebMO.tar.gz is only 75 bytes so the script is not downloading the full file. Decided to download WebMO.15.003p.tar.gz (over 5Mb), extracted but still had challenges even when I tried to run setup.pl as during an installation on a regular linux box. should this approach work or is the sitc approach doing something critical for webmo to run on google cloud?

This likely indicates that one used invalid download credentials within the SITC script. The downloaded file is actually an HTML error message rather than a gzip file! It should be more robust to indicate an error.

The contents of the WebMO.tar.gz file
Requested version: 17.0.008p
Authorized version: 15.0.002p
I am in the process of getting campus approval to update to WebMO 17 Pro, but currently only have WebMO 15.

Is the cloud computing script only set up for version 17?
