[CentOS] OpenVZ – container based virtualization quick guide. Part 1 of 2

This quick guide will walk you through setting up OpenVZ on CentOS. I followed these steps on CentOS release 5.5 x64 version. If you want more detail on install via different methods and/or have different flavor of CentOS and run into an issue, you can follow instructions provided by OpenVZ site. Once you are done with this guide, you will have CentOS container running for you to play with.

For my purposes, I started with very basic installation of CentOS 5.5. I have done this on existing installations of CentOS without any issues as well. Ok so let’s start with getting the OpenVZ repository added to our system. This means that we will be going down “yum” path instead of “rpm” path. This is the quickest and easiest way to get OpenVZ installed.

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget http://download.openvz.org/openvz.repo
rpm --import …

Now, if my purpose was deploying these machines, a private cloud in one host (namely, my laptop) would not make sense. But to create a flexible testing environment, it works very well.
Users of virtual machines software such as VMWare or VirtualBox may ask what's new here. You can create many virtual machines and use them within the same host.
True, but creating a new virtual machine in one minute without duplication of resources is not so easy. This is what this article covers. More specifically, it covers …

Drupal 7 test drive appliance updated to 7.0-beta2, now with GUI option

Over the weekend I updated my Drupal 7 test appliance in SUSE Studio to the Drupal 7.0-beta2 release, which was released on Oct. 23rd. I also added phpMyAdmin upon a user request, to provide a web-based method to work with the MySQL instance, if needed.

In addition to the lightweight "headless" appliance (which can only be accessed and configured via a remote network connection), I've now also created a GUI-based version. This appliance starts a minimal GNOME desktop and a Mozilla Firefox browser, which in turn opens the …
