How to Install XEN Virtualizor on CentOS 6

Here in this article I will guide you through the process of installation of XEN Virtualizor on CentOS 6. Virtualizor is the ONLY VPS control panel which is supporting XEN 4.1 virtualization technique and i personally feel it’s the way better than other control panel available in the market.

Requirements for installing XEN Virtualizor:

  • CentOS 5.x /6.x or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.x or Scientific Linux 5.x or Ubuntu 12.04 (x86 or x86_64)
  • Yum
  • If you want full virtualization then your CPU must support the Hardware Virtualization
  • Logical Volume Group (LVG) – with NO LVMs and enough Space to create new LVMs for VPS

To install the Virtualizor, you must comply with the server requirements and the following partition schema stated in the Virtualizor Wiki.

Virtualizor installer is smart and powerful enough to handle all the software and dependencies installation stuff. You just need to enter 3 commands in SSH terminal. (You can use PuTTY).

wget -N
chmod 0755
./ kernel=xen lvg=VOLUME_GROUP_NAME

In the third command, watch out carefully, you will find the arguments which you need to enter.

  • Email : Your Email Address
  • Kernel : XEN
  • Lvg : it’s a name of the Volume group. You can find the name by the “vgdisplay” command.

There are also other parameters if you want to use.

  • noos : If you don’t want to download the DomU operating system for the DomU then please add noos=true as a parameter
  • beta : If there is a newer version of Virtualizor available and you would like to test it then please add beta=true as a parameter

Put your hands off the keyboard and the Virtualizor will be installed within 3 to 5 minutes.
