Note:

After installation create volume group on lvm partition(physical volume )and give it any name.

For pvcreate use the following command

pvcreate partition name e.g pvcreate /dev/sdb2

Physical volume "/dev/sdb2" successfully created

to check physical volume name rum command “pvdisplay”

Once you create the physical volume, you can create the volume group (VG) from these physical volumes (PV).

vgcreate  vg_name  pv_name     e.g. vgcreate  vg_group  /dev/sdb2

  Volume  group "vg_group" successfully created

to check vg created name  run command “vgdisplay”

./install.sh [email protected] kernel=kvm lvg=VOLUME_GROUP_NAME

you should give lvg = vg name created by you

Also make sure that visualization should be enabled in BIOS

How to create FTP account on cpanel?

To create an FTP account:

  1. Log into cPanel
  2. In the Files section, click FTP Accounts.
  3. In the Login field, type the name of the FTP user. A full FTP user name will always be formatted as [email protected]. You cannot create an FTP account without your domain name in it, regardless of the publish destination.
  4. In the Password fields, enter a password which will be used to authenticate this FTP account.
  5. Set a quota for the FTP account. Quota is the maximum amount of bandwidth the FTP user may use. If you leave the quota as unlimited, the FTP user will have the ability to use the total amount of bandwidth for the cPanel account.
  6. In the Directory field, cPanel will auto-populate an assumed directory based on the FTP username, but that is normally incorrect. So, we recommend erasing everything after public_html/ and providing the directory you would like the user to access.
    • If you erase everything and type a single “/”, the user will have access to your home directory (anything outside of the public_html folder).After that check with filezilla FTP

      1. Hostname
      2.Username
      3.Password
      If it showing disconnected error then please stop the firewall(IPtables) service  by using:

      /etc/init.d/iptables status ->to check
      /etc/init.d/iptables stop -> to stop
