Overview

Installing Softaculous Virtualizor Master only server is very simple. Any Virtualizor server (with one or more virtualization) can be set as the master of a cluster. Master only server can be installed on any vps as there is no virtualization technology installed on the server only the Virtualizor panel is installed. There is no absolute necessity to have a Master only server. However some users prefer not to have any virtualization software installed on the master. This guide will show you how to install a Virtualizor Master only server.


Requirements

  • CentOS 5.x / 6.x / 7 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.x / 6.x or Scientific Linux 5.x / 6.x or Ubuntu 12.04 or Ubuntu 14.04 (x86 or x86_64)
  • Yum


Partition Scheme

Create the following partitions on the Hardware Node:

Partition Size Description
/ 20 GB + Root partition containing all Hardware Node operating system files
SWAP 2 times RAM Paging partition for the Linux operating system

NOTE : Please create the / partition as per your requirement. As the OS templates will be stored on it and providing more templates will require more space on / partition.

Installation

Open a Shell Terminal (e.g. PuTTY) and SSH to your server. Run the following commands:

wget -N http://files.virtualizor.com/install.sh
chmod 0755 install.sh
./install.sh master=1 email=your@email.com

Please give the email address correctly !

The installation will begin immediately. It may seem that the installation has stopped, if your network speed is slow, but please let it continue. You will see something like this :
