Mangihin.com is a website that provides useful information, please share if there is interesting information that can help you. Thank you

This time I will make a tutorial on how to install and configure Proxmox VE on Debian Server. I’m using Debian 10 Buster, but this configuration is still compatible with Debian 8 or Debian 9. Previously you should know what is Proxmox VE ???

Proxmox VE (Proxmox Virtual Environment) is an open source server virtualization environment. It is a Debian-based Linux distribution with a modified Ubuntu LTS kernel and allows deployment and management of virtual machines and containers. But this time I will install proxmox on Debian 10.

Materials needed :

  1. VirtualBox Server Debian 8 / Debian 9 / Debian 10
  2. Internet connection

The next step is to follow the following.

First, run the server and then login with the user “root” and edit files /etc/hots by command “nano /etc/hots”then add the script but change the ip address according to your server’s ip address.


Second, also Edit the /etc/hostname file with the command “nano /etc/hostname” then replace it with your server ip address.


Third, Add the repository on your server with the command echo “deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pve stretch pve-no-subscription” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-install-repo.listthen press “enter”.


Fourth, also add the repository key on your server with the command “wget ​​http://download.proxmox.com/debian/proxmox-ve-release-5.x.gpg -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/proxmox-ve-release-5.x.gpg “then “enter”.


Fifth, update and upgrade your repository server with the command “apt update && dist upgrade”then “enter”.


Sixth, Install Proxmox VE with the command “apt-get install proxmox-ve postfix open-iscsi”then press “enter” and wait until the installation process is complete.


Seventh, If the error install the following package.


Eighth, restart your server with the command “init 6”, then “enter”.

Ninth, Log in again to your server with the user “root”.


Tenth, Client / Windows side open the browser then type “https://server_ip_address:8006”then “enter”.


Eleventh, Next login with username “root” and password according to your server, then click “login”.


Twelfth, if the notification “no valid subscription” appears, click “ok”.


Thirteenth, Finished we install and configure the results.

Until here proxmox can be used. For further configuration stages, wait for our next article. Obey the health protocol, may you always be in His protection. So, hopefully useful.
