as they are already openvz, i have a few openvz containers on a proxmox set up, i could try the above physical to container tutorial i posted for you and see if it works when i try to reimport it if you want ?

from ovh, we don't provide that option I'm afraid. But you may be able to do the image yourself and back it up, though we cannot give you support for that. Maybe other forum users can help you.

Thanks

Theres a few tutorials out there, technically the below process might work

Hello,
I've got the cheapest VPS:
https://www.ovh.co.uk/vps/vps-classic.xml

I am configuring it on my own needs, but can I later download this image, or dd from /dev somehow to get image and use it as container for OpenVZ?

Thanks
