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.

H-Sphere supports all versions of RealServer that have ISPHosting support. If your license doesn't support ISPHosting, contact your RealServer account representative to obtain a license key that has the same number of streams and properly enables ISP hosting.

RealServer can be installed on a web box or a separate box with apache.

Installation Procedure

  1. Install RealServer with ISPHosting support on a web box or a separate box into /hsphere/shared/RealServer as instructed by RealServer documentation. If you set it up on a web box, specify 8080 port instead of the default 80, which is used by apache. During the installation, note the following data, as you will need them on subsequent steps:
    - RealServer IP
