Default virtual servers not running

I've created a virtual server in ISPConfig.

i created an IP
i created a OS package, centos-6-x86_64, and used that as the ospackage
i added a client
i used the small template
i added a host name
i gave it a vm password
checked start at boot and active
saved

then clicked on the blue arrow and executed selected action start virtual server

and the message comes back, it could take a few minutes to start the server.

But the server never seems to start and there isn't any thing in the BeanCounter

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong

Try to start the server on the shell to see if you get any errors. the command is:

vzctl start 101

where 101 has to be replaced with the IP of the server.

I get
-bash: vzctl: command not found

I used this documentation to install the server, looks like it might not have been installed

The guide to install a ispconfig openvz server can be found here:

http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...g-3-debian-6.0

You can not use a server that runs already a ispconfig webserver as openvz host as openvz can not start virtual machines on a device that has quota enabled.

You should consider to use Debian (which is the recommended Linux Distribution for ISPConfig) then as the openvz functions are only tested with Debian. They might work for Centos, but we havent tested that.

And please note that you can not use a server that is configured for webhosting (the perfect server guide) to host openvz images as it uses quota and quota can not be activated on a device that hosts openvz images as the openvz kernel extension has its own quota implementation.

If you want to try to build your own openvz setup for centos, you might use this as starting point:

ok just so I understand. webhosting and Virtualisation dont go together but Virtualisation and Webhosting do?

in other words you can webhost in virtualizations?

I'm a little confused as the why virtualisation is in ISPConfig when you cant virtualise from it?

Also can I create virtual servers on another server from a server that has been set up for webhosting?

Yes and you can use ispconfig to manage the virtualservers and you can use ispconfig to manage web hosting servers, which can be other dedicated servers or even ispconfig instances inside the virtual servers which are controlled by the ispconfig interface on the host system.

You can virtualize from within ISPConfig. I posted you the guide to it above, here again the link:

http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...g-3-debian-6.0

Please remember that ispconfig is a multiserver controlpanel, so you can run several servers from one ispconfig interface were e.g. some servers are virtual servers while others are webservers, mailservers etc.

So I would be best to setup a dedicated server for virtualizing and use ISPConfig to manage the servers.

Also can I create virtual servers from my preexisting server that has been set up for webhosting?
