Debian 10 on OpenVZ

Brand new Debian 10 "Buster" on OpenVZ VMs - is it real?


  • WilliamWilliam Moderator
    Hello Evpa,
    It does not seem to be possible that Debian 10 "Buster" would be available on OpenVZ VPS services, because of required 4.x kernel version, while OpenVZ 6 and OpenVZ 7 uses only 2.6.32.x and 3.x kernel versions. If our developers will manage to find a workaround somehow, I am sure we will announce the new OS availability via our social network channels.

    Some news ? It's very annoying to use old OS
    Actually Debian 9 is only "partially" available because of limitations of systemd with 2.6

    Hello stealth,

    Debian 10 requires 4.19.0-6 kernel. However, our newest OpenVZ 7 Container VPS runs with the kernel version 3.10.0. Therefore, Debian 10 is not compatible with our Container VPS servers.

    However, we also offer Linux VPS servers, that are based on KVM:

    For this type of server, we have a template ready with Debian 10.

  • How I can migrate ? I mean not technically, but for switching my subscription ?

    Hello stealth,

    we can suggest re-creating your server. Keep in mind that data will be deleted, so if you want to save it, you should take care of its migration or a backup. Meanwhile, we will terminate the old server and set up a new server with the same resources. If you are interested in this offer, please open a ticket with such a request from your client area:

    Or you can order a new Container VPS server and transfer all data from the current server to the new one with the help of local IP:
