My man Mr. Boettcher posted up a video on how to install OWASP's WebGoat Vulnerable web application!

He walks you through WebGoat 5.4, and even gives you some tips on solving issues that he'd found.  And to make it even easier, he's given you some instructions below.

Hope you enjoy, especially if you've had issues setting up WebGoat in the past.
