Any reason you need to make a vps on the box? Why not just use the whole box as a webserver?

Anyways, you can use vmware, virtualbox, proxmox, xenserver, etc etc, depending on what you have and what you need..

Google for each of those terms and you'll find tons of information.

You can just install cPanel by yourself without setting up your box as a vps node.


# wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest
# sh latest


ip:2086
login
follow directions
PROFIT!

Installing Cpanel on the server does not make it a virtual hosting environment. T do this, you need to install virtual server application. You can try VMware's Server 2;

http://www.vmware.com/beta/server/

Install that, then all you need to do is either create a VM server using your favor of Linux or download one that is already created images;

You would need to get either Windows Server 2008 *or* use VMWAre or another alternative.


Only linux & windows 2k8 is supported by cPanel. cPanel for 2k8 just came out so be careful using it.

Follow the linux's i've posted in my reply above this one. Download VMware server and install it and then download one of the Linux images and apply it in Vmware Server. Then you just SSH into the Linux server (Virtual Server that you've made) and install CPanel in there.

Once you do that, you've made your very first Cpanel hosted VM server.

Good Luck!

Hello Pamir,

How did you make out with your VPS? Curious to see what you went with and how you made out.

Later.

# nano /etc/resolv.conf

(If that doesn't work do yum -y install nano)


Then make it say

You can set your resolver in cpanel/whm. the ips should come from your provider or datacenter.
