Get Virtualizor

Edit Distro

Use the Edit Distro API to update the distro information on the server. This is the information about the distribution flavor of the OS that will be used for the creation of Virtual Private Servers. By default Virtualizor provides information about eight types of distributions viz. CentOS, Fedora, openSUSE, Debian, Ubuntu, Scientific, Windows and Webuzo. In addition to that you can add information about any new distros also. The API response will contain "done" as "1" on successful update of the distribution information.
