4.2 Setting a virtual server

Next

To set a virtual server, you need to copy in a sub-directory a Linux installation. One way to achieve that is to copy some parts of the the current server by issuing the command vserver XX build, where XX is the name of the virtual server (pick one). This basically does (Well, it does a little more than that, but this give you an idea):
mkdir /vservers/XX
cd /vservers/XX
cp -ax /sbin /bin /etc /usr /var /dev /lib .
mkdir proc tmp home
chmod 1777 tmp

Building a virtual server

This is normally done using the command /usr/sbin/newvserver. This is a text mode/graphical front-end allowing to setup the vserver runtime and configure it.
