LXC Templates

Before creating a new LXC service, you must add one or more LXC templates to ProxCP. Proxmox provides a bunch of pre-made LXC templates available for download.

To add a LXC template, click ADMIN > Manage LXC Templates. In the Friendly Name field, enter a name for the template such as "CentOS 7". In the volume ID field, enter the volume ID of the template. The format for this is {storage_name}:vztmpl/{file_name}. For example, if the LXC template was stored in the "local-lvm" Proxmox storage, the volume ID would be local-lvm:vztmpl/template.tar.gz.

ProxCP assumes that all LXC templates are available on all added Proxmox nodes.

LXC Creation

ADMIN > Manage LXC

  • User ID: which user should this service be assigned to? You can find user IDs on the ADMIN > Manage Users page
  • Billing Account ID: What is the billing ID of this service? Generally, this should be synced with a service/account/billing ID from a billing platform like Hostbill, WHMCS, or Blesta but it can be any unique number
  • Pool ID: name of the Proxmox pool that should be created and used for this VPS. This can be in any format, but we recommend "client_{client_id}_{service_id}" such as "client_104_2"
  • Node: which Proxmox node should this VPS be placed on?
  • LXC Hostname: the arbitrary hostname of this VPS
  • Operating System: the LXC template that should be used
  • Operating System Type: the LXC template type
  • IPv4: the IPv4 address assigned to this VPS in CIDR format
  • IPv4 Gateway: the IPv4 gateway that should be used
  • IPv4 Netmask: the IPv4 netmask that should be used
  • LXC CPU Cores: how many CPU cores should this VPS have?
  • LXC RAM: how much RAM should this VPS have?
  • LXC Storage Location: where should the virtual disk for this VPS be located?
  • LXC Storage Size: how big should the virtual disk for this VPS be?
  • LXC Bandwidth Limit: how much bandwidth should this VPS get each month?


It may be convenient to allow your users to enable/disable the TUN/TAP interface on LXC services by themselves in ProxCP. Proxmox does not provide a convenient way to do this therefore ProxCP requires special permissions to do this. You can add those permissions on the ADMIN > Manage LXC TUN/TAP page. More details are shown there too.
