OpenVZ consists of a kernel, user-level tools and templates. Kernel and tools are needed to install OpenVZ, and templates are needed to create containers.

For kernel and utilities installation instructions, see wiki:Quick installation (or wiki:Installation on Debian). For templates, see Templates download.

Yum repository

If you are using yum, you can add openvz yum repository by putting openvz.repo file to your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory. For more info, see wiki:Yum.

Mirrors

OpenVZ software is available from a number of mirrors. If you want to host an mirror of download.openvz.org, see wiki:Setting up a mirror for further info.

Background

This is the official archive for: - pre-compiled OpenVZ enabled linux kernel packages for production use - updated versions of OpenVZ utilities stable enough for production use - latest versions of OpenVZ utilities for testing

Stable packages

Stable packages are packages stable enough for production use. It is not the same definition as used for Debian stable. Instead this archive will contain up-to-date versions as soon as they are considered for production use. The packages are built for: - Debian 8.0 jessie (current stable release) - Debian 7.0 wheezy (old stable release) Add the following line in your /etc/apt/sources.list file: Jessie: deb https://download.openvz.org/debian jessie main Wheezy: deb https://download.openvz.org/debian wheezy main In "wheezy" and "jessie" the following packages are available: - vzctl (i386 and amd64) - vzquota (i386 and amd64) - vzstats (architecture independent) - ploop with libploop1 and libploop-dev (i386 and amd64) In "wheezy" the following packages are also available: - linux-image-openvz-amd64 (amd64) This is a meta package that installs the latest openvz enabled kernel for amd64 architecture. - linux-image-openvz-i386 (i386) This is a meta package that installs the latest openvz enabled kernel for i386 architecture. The Linux kernel images also works in "jessie" but have not been uploaded to that repository. More packages will available as soon as they have been confirmed stable for production use.

Test versions

If you want to help testing new kernel and/or utility versions add the following line (in addition to the above) in your /etc/apt/sources.list file: Jessie: deb https://download.openvz.org/debian jessie-test main Wheezy: deb https://download.openvz.org/debian wheezy-test main In "jessie-test" and "wheezy-test" the following packages are available: - vzctl (i386 and amd64) - vzquota (i386 and amd64) - vzstats (architecture independent) - ploop with libploop1 and libploop-dev (i386 and amd64) - linux-image-openvz-amd64 (amd64) This is a meta package that installs the latest openvz enabled kernel for amd64 architecture. - linux-image-openvz-i386 (i386) This is a meta package that installs the latest openvz enabled kernel for i386 architecture. Please submit bugs at https://bugs.openvz.org/ and please report success tests to debian@openvz.org. This way we can speed up the transition to production use.
