Installing Master Openvz SolusVM (vps management Control panel) On linux server:

Introduction to SolusVM:
Solus Virtual Manager (SolusVM) is a powerful GUI based VPS management control panel with full OpenVZ, Xen Paravirtualization. SolusVM allows you and your clients to manage a VPS cluster with security & ease

1. Basic Requirements :

CentOS 5+ based linux operating system

OpenVZ – Ensure you are running an OpenVZ Kernel

PHP 5.1.6

2.Installing OpenVz Kernal :

Login as root

# cd /usr/local/src

Download latest version of openvz from the link : suitable you architecture. I’ve downloaded for x86_64


# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.18-ovz028stab056.1.x86_64.rpm

As well as you can install openvz kernal using Yum, to install openvz kernal using  yum, you should set up OpenVZ yum repository first :

3.Download openvz.repo file and save it to your “/etc/yum.repos.d/” repository as follows :

# cd /etc/yum.repos.d

# wget

# rpm –import

4. Now install Openvz kernal by running :

# yum install ovzkernel[-flavor]  ([-flavor] is optional, and can be -smp or -enterprise. )

5. Now Configure the bootloader in order to boot your server with new kernal:

# vi /boot/grub/grub.conf

It should look like






title CentOS (2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6)

root (hd0,0)

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6 ro root=LABEL=/


make the apprppriate changes and as well as make sure SELinux should be disabled on the server. Now reboot your server.

Once the server is up you’re ready to install SolusVM.

6. Installing SolusVM Master:
#  Login as root
#  chmod 755 install
#  ./install
7. You will now be prompted with the menus you must select 1st Option that is  “Install SolusVM Master”(GUI – Only 1 per cluster). Press Enter.
8. Then again you will now be prompted with the menus you must select 1st Option that is “Start Master Install (OpenVZ)”. Press Enter.
The install will now do it’s work.
9.Once the installatin is completed. You will see the below message with details :
Installation Completed…
Admin Area ………. : http://<Master IP>:5353/admincp or https://Master IP:5656/admincp
Client Area ……… : http://IP:5353 or https://IP:5656
Admin Username …… : vpsadmin
Admin Password …… : vpsadmin
10. You might receive following error message after login to Admin Area :
There seems to have been a slight problem with our database, please try again later
This error usually occurs when the SolusVM MySQL installation is conflicting with an existing MySQL instance. To resolve this issue you should remove the existing mysql installation on node by running following command :
# yum remove  mysql mysql-client mysql-server
and again run the SolusVM installer as in step 6.
