Overview

This guide will help you to install Virtualizor on Proxmox 3.x, 4.x and 5.x. Installing Softaculous Virtualizor for Proxmox is very simple.

NOTE: Proxmox Integration is in Beta.

Requirements

  • Proxmox OS (ISO can be downloaded from here )
  • apt-get
  • Storage to create the VPSs disks

Notes :-

* Proxmox 3.x, 4.x or 5.x MUST be installed before installing Virtualizor.

Partition Scheme

Partition Size Description
/ 80-100 GB Root partition containing all Hardware Node operating system files, OS templates and ISOs
SWAP 4 GB + Paging partition for the Linux operating system(Swap memory is been used by virtual servers if there is shortage of real memory)
Storage All the remaining space on the hard disk This partition can be used to create either Logical Volumes or File Based Storage for the VPS (DomUs).

NOTE for LVM : You must NOT create any Logical Volume and MOUNT it. This must be an EMPTY VOLUME GROUP.
Virtualizor will not delete any pre-existing LVs in the Volume Group. But its recommended to have an empty Volume Group.

NOTE for File Storage : You must create and mount the folder.

Virtualizor uses ports from 4081 - 4085. If there is any firewall restricting this, you will need to allow these ports.
