Installation guide for Ubuntu 18.04 in PVE LXC (Community edition)

  • Please download "ubuntu-18.04-standard_18.04.1-1_amd64.tar.gz" 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 run the following commands to install needed programs and OxOOL Community edition
apt update
apt upgrade -y
apt install vim openssh-server net-tools curl gnupg2 -y
# Chooese yes if you get any service restarting prompts

curl | apt-key add
echo "deb [arch=amd64] oxool-v3 main" > ~/oxool.list
mv ~/oxool.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
apt update
apt install oxool oxoffice* -y
  • Start OxOOL Community edition service when booting
systemctl enable oxool
  • Reboot 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.
