Installation guide for CentOS 7 in PVE LXC (Community edition)

  • Please download "centos-7-default_20190926_amd64.tar.xz" LXC template in PVE


  • Create a new CT using "Create CT" button (please uncheck "Unprivileged container" for now, or you may encounter some weird issues)




  • Reboot and login as root. Then run the following commands to install needed programs and OxOOL Community edition
yum install vim openssh* net-tools unzip wget -y
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget --no-check-certificate
yum update -y
yum groupinstall "OxOOL Community Group" -y
  • Start OxOOL Community edition service when booting
systemctl enable oxool
  • Reboot, login as root, and check if OxOOL Community edition starts normally
netstat -tlnp

You should get some results like this:

Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State       PID/Program name

Congratulations and enjoy!

P. S. When steps above are finished, you can use "More"→"Convert to template" to generate new LXC template that contains OxOOL Community edition.
