VpsAdmin Manages OpenVZ Instances

Jan 20, 2010

The developers of a Czech hosting company has released a Web interface for administering virtual servers under OpenVZ.

The vpsAdmin tool in version 1.0 is written in PHP 5.2 and uses a MySQL database. The Web interface shows statistics and allows central administration of countless OpenVZ instances on many physical computers. It allows installing, starting, and stopping virtual servers, migrating servers, and configuring their network interfaces.
The software, originally developed for the vpsFree.cz hosting service, is under GPLv3 licensing and currently only supports Debian Lenny officially. Further details and a tarball are available on the vpsAdmin homepage.
