This might be a noob question, but can somebody guide me, or link me to a good guide to creating OVZ CentOS templates?

I searched pretty far, and the one on OVZ forums is kind of confusing.

Thanks :D

    The top result from Google seems fairly relevant, I've used this myself many times

    While it is for CentOS 5, it will work for any distro if you just start with a base template and configure it how you wish.

  • The easiest way is to take a preexisting template, install it to a container, make the changes you want, shut it down, tar it up. Done.

    Wasn't sure if you could do that or not, but awesome, just what I needed.

    Thanks!

  • Its literally as easy as taring a container, although you have to remove some files first.
