HipChat Server setup on a Linux VPS


We are looking into using HipChat Server for company's internal communication.

So far, the virtual setup of HipChat Server from open archive (OVA) image or an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is proving confusing.

We bought a license for HipChat only to see that we cannot install on our own image. This is not an option for us.
