WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

This document describes final steps you need to perform in H-Sphere interface to provide VPS hosting. We presume that you have already installed H-Sphere VPS software to a separate box. Before your users will be able to signup to virtual server plans and receive virtual servers in their use, you need to do the following:

  1. Add the newly installed server via the cp interface as a physical box.
  2. Add Virtual Servers server group to this physical box.
  3. Add a logical server to this physical box.
  4. Add VPS Network Gateway
  5. Add IP range to this logical server.
  6. Enable user signup on logical virtual server.
  7. Make sure Virtual private server is enabled in Globals.
  8. Create VPS plans.

 

1. Add the newly installed server via the cp interface as a physical box:

Skip this step for H-Sphere VPS 1.4-4 and up!

  1. In your admin control panel, select Add P.Server in the E.Manager -> Servers menu.
  2. Click Add Physical Server at the bottom of the page that appears.
  3. On the next page, enter the name of the physical server, its IP and associated mask.
  4. Select Add P.Server in the E.Manager -> Servers menu to see the newly added server among other physical servers in the system.

 

2. Add Virtual Servers server group to physical box:

  2. Click the name of the VPS physical server.
  3. Closer to the bottom of the page that appears, choose the name of the server group and Click Add:

    IPs' type must be set to Virtual private server IP. Each VPS leased to your users takes a free Virtual private server IP.
    If all virtual private server IPs on this logical server are taken, no users will be able to signup under VPS plans.
