    I have a question if you will...

    I'm thinking about installing openvz on my box. I did read through
    the docs here on cpanel's site and while they have a link for VPS, there
    is nothing there but the standard installation documents. (time for a
    update guys :)) I also read the docs on openvz's site and they just
    aren't very clear. So, I logged into their forum and asked. Again, since
    not many there speak/write English from their replies, it wasn't very
    clear to me either.

    My question is.. I have pretty much a fresh install of CentOS 5 & CPanel.
    I'd like to install OpenVZ. Do, I need to remove cpanel and put on openvz
    first or (as they mentioned on openvz's site) can I use a make-shift kernel
    they have there to overwrite the standard Centos kernel that will work with
    openvz.

    Basically, can someone give me the breakdown of how things need to be
    installed? at what point the items need installing and maybe point me to
    some good online docs. If the info is pretty straight forward and not a run
    around with words.. then even a idiot like myself can follow them. <g>

    Thanks

    To eliminate the confusion, here's how you do things:

    1. Install your VPS software (OpenVZ, Xen, Virtuozzo or any other environment we support).
    2. Provision a VPS server
    3. Login to that server and install cPanel/WHM as if it was a dedicated server.

    Note, you need 1 cPanel/WHM license per server and each server MUST be on its own IP address. However, since these are VPSs, you may want to look into our lower-cost VPS licensing rather than using Dedicated Server licenses for VPSs. We do not offer these directly in small quantities, but you may be able to acquire them from your data center if they offer cPanel/WHM licensing. If not, check out our distributor list at:

    Ignore the entry for cPanel, Inc as we do not offer small quantities of VPS licenses directly.
