installing Bitnami script

Sep 9, 2013 by Jake
Hi there
  I have VPS hosting with Bluehost Hosting provider. I need to install OSQA web script and for this there’s a third script installer called “Bitnami”. Bitnami has a one click OSQA installation. Now this is a “ .run” file I have in my PC. The question is how can this script be installed on my VPS server?  Any ideas how to do this?
Many thanks in advanced

Don’t use any automatic installers if your VPS server has data on it. These installers usually  require a clean new system without any data or software on it.

If your VPS server is clean without any data then upload the .run file on the VPS, and  make it chmod executable and simply run it to start the OSQA installation.

I think you should not run this installer and just follow the manual step by step installing process from the OSQA website.
