    I am using ISPCONFIG, since very long, but have not used the VPS.
    Where I can have a detailed instruction how can add multiple VPS on existing ISPCONFIG installation.
    while seeing the Control Panel it says minimal debian.
    so say some one wants centos or Ubuntu specific version, is it possible?
    How can deploy from the start. which link I need to follow?

    Do you want to manage virtual machines from within ISPConfig (with the VM module)? ISPConfig is using OpenVZ as the basis for the VM feature, the OpenVZ project stopped their Kernel Development, so OpenVZ is not available anymore for latest Linux distributions. We will develop a new VM module for ISPConfig by using a different technology (KVM or LXC or something similar), but this has not been started yet.

    Yes.
    but since you say that OpenVZ project stopped their kernel development.
    what other options I have to manage VPS from within ISPCONFIG or otherwise?

    There are no other options to manage a VM from within ISPConfig at the moment.

    Hi Till, you recently said that
    the OpenVZ project stopped their Kernel Development, so OpenVZ is not available anymore for latest Linux distributions,
    but now I see openVZ new version, does it mean, I can use latest Linux distributions with OpenVZ.

    What you probably mean is OpenVZ 7? Thats's not the original openvz, they re-used the brand name for a set of scripts that are based on KVM, that's completely different software than the original Openvz and not compatible.

    Thanks for the clarification Till, I was not aware about that.
    but as I could see even in the present form in ISPCONFIG, I can see templates like 'debian minimal' . I think I can use that if not other linux distros.

    You have to differentiate between the Linux OS of the host and the one in the guest (in the vm). The last supported host OS is Debian 8 while the last supported guest OS is Debian 9 (with systemd turned off, as openvz does not support systemd).

    Oh. Okay. This means that if my server OS is not Debian8, I can't use the Virtual server from within ISPCONFIG.
    is this correct?

    Yes, you can only use the VM module when your server is running an OpenVZ kernel.

    Thanks Till. As you said earlier that ISPCONFIG will develop new VM Module to be used with ISPCONFIG, is the development of the same is started?

    I did some research and made some test setups already but haven't been able to start writing the actual module yet.

    Hi Till,
    Last clarification, if I install KVM, without using ISPCONFIG, that is ISPCONFIG is installed on the same server, will it interfere with the ISPCONFIG in any way?

    No.
