Current Display of Fires, Virtualization of the Planet Earth Server

A while ago, the University of Maryland changed its MODIS data format.

As a result the Global Fire Display and Fire Index no longer worked.
Debugging on the working server was impossible, because of its active running state, with scripts popping up every minute.

A simple backup of the server could not be installed on my laptop as a second operating system for debugging purposes.

Because of other demands on my time, it took a while before I could configure a virtual machine to run the web server on.

This has now been done and the MODIS data display is debugged.
