I'm working on a Linux VPS that is running FC6, and I want to reinstall with the latest version FC12. The VPS is running on the Virtuozzo platform. I am also running Plesk on the VPS. This is all managed hosting through Network Solutions, so I don't have access to the actual box.

My question is, how does one reinstall a different OS through Virtuozzo? I see "reinstall VPS" in virtuozzo, but this just burns a fresh copy of FC6?

Is this a host-by-host thing, or are there best practices for accomplishing this..?

What is Guest OS are you using if you running any Linux then you install take image of your live os it will be around 4 GB plus, or if you are using any microsoft os then you use any of the symantec back /ghost software take image then reinstall fc12 and virtuozzo

If the reinstall VPS thing only offers you the option to reinstall FC6, then you need to get in touch with your host, otherwise it will likely offer a list of options, and it will also delete the contents of your VPS, so be careful.

Do you mean that my host should offer a list of OS options when I reinstall VPS? Meaning Virtuozzo should be equipped to setup one of many distributions? – cinqoTimo Jan 19 '10 at 16:20
