Hello,
I have the same worries, have you found a solution to install CloudLinux?

Thank you for sharing.

Now I tried installing fresh centOS 6 but here it comes: http://demo.ovh.eu/en/d2d60095a4675d4eb2974f8f058d5054/

I think the server is faulty.

If it's definitely booting from the hard drive then use KVM to try and find why it isn't booting, I can't personally think of any reasons why CloudLinux wouldn't work on that particular hardware.
It was booting from hard drive but the technicians at OVH started my server in rescue mode. I am not sure what to check. The server is new and I have not installed anything on it, just the cpanel/whm.

For Hosting servers, it's this: https://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_serv...xml?range=HOST. If you see, CloudLinux is not available on any HOSTING server. Don't know why, but it's just not available.

Now, on why it doesn't starts, you should take a look to the KVM, yo should see what's the problem there. I'd bet it's a hardware compatibility issue; maybe it's just not detecting the network card. Remember when running cldeploy you get a new (a little bit old) kernel installed, and that can change many things.
That's what I am saying. The range is named after HOST and yet it does not support cloudlinux while other ranges do.

Hello,
We're starting a shared web hosting company in our area. I selected OVH hosting range 2016. I ordered server 2 weeks ago and received details yesterday.

I purchased cloudlinux license and went to install the server with cloudlinux. To my surprise cloudlinux is not listed in OS list. The range is specially built for hosting websites and yet there is no cloudlinux OS.

Anyway I installed server with cPanel/WHM (CentoS 6) template.

2. Then I upgraded Centos to cloudlinux 6 using 2 commands given on cloudlinux website.

once upgrade has been completed I restarted my server. I waited 5 minutes but it didn't come back up. I had to press restart from the control panel but instead they started my server in rescue mode. I am not sure how can I fix it?

The server is useless for me without cloudlinux.

Please advise
