Linux-Vserver on Debian Testing (Etch), the easy way

Filed under
HowTos

What is Linux-Vserver, you ask? It's simple. Basically, Linux-Vserver is an open-source system used to separate a single physical server into multiple virtual servers. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to install Linux-Vserver on Debian Testing (Etch), the easy way.

Two terms you will need to know are:

*Host System: This is the main system (the physical server) which you install Linux-Vserver onto.
*Guest System: These are the virtual systems you create using the Linux-Vserver utilities. They run on top of the Host System, and are all isolated from each other.

Most tutorials mention that you need to compile your own kernel in order to use Linux-Vserver. However, Debian Etch includes a Linux-Vserver kernel as standard, so you don't need to compile it yourself. This has the advantage of being easier and faster to install, and it's easy to keep up-to-date with security updates.

First Steps

The first thing you'll need to do is have a system with a fresh installation of Debian Etch.
