System requirements

  • 1 GHz or faster 32 bits (x86) or 64 bits (x64) processor
  • 1 Gio memory (minimum) - For heavily loaded servers or high flow is recommended at least 8 Gio
  • 1 Gio of available hard disk space for i-MSCP and managed services, excluding user data
  • Internet access (at least 100 Mbits/s recommended)
  • A Linux kernel >= 2.6.26
  • A file system supporting extended attributes such as ext2, ext3, ext4 or reiserfs*
  • Appropriate privileges to create devices (CAP_MKNOD capability)
  • Appropriate privileges to mount, unmount and remount filesystems (CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability)

Reiserfs users

In order, to use the reiserfs file system with i-MSCP, you must follow these steps:

Edit your /etc/fstab file to add the attrs option for your device (e.g. device containing the /var partition). For instance:

  UUID=74699091-3ab8-43f2-bdd5-d1d898ab50fd /     reiserfs notail          0    1

should be updated to:

  UUID=74699091-3ab8-43f2-bdd5-d1d898ab50fd /     reiserfs notail,attrs    0    1

Once you did that, you can remount your device. For instance:

  mount -o remount /dev/disk/by-uuid/74699091-3ab8-43f2-bdd5-d1d898ab50fd

If needed, you can find the uuid of your device, with the following command:

  blkid <device>

where <device> must be replaced by your device path such as /dev/sda1

LXC containers

If you want install i-MSCP inside a LXC container, the following conditions have to be met:

  • You must have the CAP_MKNOD capability inside the container. Thus, you must ensure that mknod is not in the list of dropped capabilities
  • You must have the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability inside the container (required to mount filesystems). Thus, you must ensure that `sys_admin` is not in the list of dropped capabilities.
  • You must allow the creation of devices inside the container by white-listing them. Easy solution is to add lxc.cgroup.devices.allow = a *:* rwm in LXC container configuration file.
  • If you use Apparmor, you must allow mount,umount and remount operations inside your container by modifying the default apparmor profile /etc/apparmor.d/lxc/lxc-default or by creating a specific apparmor profile for the container.

Note that these operations must be done on the host, not in the container.

OpenVZ containers (Proxmox and Virtuozzo)

You could have to increase the fs.ve-mount-nr limit, else, an error such as mount: Cannot allocate memory could be threw by CageFS. To avoid this problem you must:

  1. Increase the limit by adding an entry such as fs.ve-mount-nr = 4096 to your /etc/sysctl.conf file
  2. Make the new limit effective by executing the sysctl -p command

Note that these operations must be done on the host, not in the container.
