LXC is the Linux Container Project, afaik a subset of OpenVZ that has
been merged in the vanilla kernel.

> just try it

The problem is I'm still learning LXC so I was wondering if your
templates are a good fit for that. I probably wont be able to solve
any problems if they ocur.

I recently got a VPS and installed arch from their control panel just to
know that it was arch 0.8 !!!
How do I upgrade from arch 0.8 to the latest ?

those are created by me and mostly because nobody cared for so many
years



I notified them about these templates, they were happy and agreed to use
it.

This was the second VPS I am configuring for a friend.
I have been using their UK service (link in my signature) for more than
two years. They offer excellent quality service.

Weren't they same ones who got hacked for weak password. Went on
blaming it on software provider(HyperVM(. owner of software committed
suicide because of this.

then the original owner sold the vps company, that only to be resold
again. now the original owner seems to be starting a new company.

Quite Dramatic story...I would say

OMG I never knew about that suicide thing, but yes it is the same one,
the HyperVM hacks.

Then they withdrew Xen VPS and migrated everyone to KVM and OpenVZ.
