How do I create a Parallels Virtuozzo Container to install Parallels Plesk Panel in it?


Parallels Virtuozzo Containers (hereafter Virtuozzo) is shipped with sample configuration file which can be used to create a Virtual Environment (VE) capable of running Parallels Plesk Panel (PPP) - /etc/sysconfig/vz-scripts/ve-vps.plesk7.rh9.conf-sample. It contains resource limits enough for running for PPP in VE and a list of prerequisites for Parallels Plesk Panel in case you create VE based on standard templates (mysql, php, mod_perl, mod_ssl, mod_frontpage) which will be installed automatically after the VE is created.

To create VE #101 with PPP you should use the instructions below:

- download and install necessary OS and application templates as described in  this article

 - create VE #101 (in the example below it is created using 32-bit EZ OS template CentOS 5:

# vzctl create 101 --ostemplate centos-5-x86 --hostname --ipadd

- start the VE:

# vzctl start 101

- apply resources from the sample configuration file /etc/sysconfig/vz-scripts/ve-vps.plesk7.rh9.conf-sample:

# vzctl set 101 --applyconfig vps.plesk7.rh9 --save

- install Parallels Plesk Panel into VE (in the example below we install PPP 8 EZ template):

# vzpkg install 101 plesk8

The same operations can be done using Virtuozzo Management Console or Virtuozzo Control Center.
