Proxmox Installation Made Simple: A Step-by-Step TutorialЧерновик

Proxmox is a powerful virtualization tool that allows you to manage multiple virtual machines on a single server. Installing Proxmox may seem like a daunting task for novice users, but the process is actually quite simple. In this article, we’ll go through the steps to install and configure Proxmox so you can start using it for your virtualization projects.

There are two ways to install Proxmox:

  • Install Proxmox using the iso image
  • Install Proxmox on the server with the Linux operating system already installed

Install Proxmox using the iso image

Download the latest version of Proxmox from the official website and save it to your local computer.

Preparing a bootable USB disk

You can use Ventoy or Rufus to create a bootable disk.

After preparing a bootable USB disk, insert it into the server and boot from the USB disk.

Follow the instructions prepared in this video.

Installing Proxmox on a server running Debian 11 Bullseye

Before starting the installation we need to prepare the system, to do this edit the file / etc / hosts and make it look like this, replacing with the IP address of your server       localhost   prox4m1.proxmox.com prox4m1

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts

::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback

ff02::1 ip6-allnodes

ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

Adding the Proxmox repository

Add a repository key

wget https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian/proxmox-release-bullseye.gpg -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/proxmox-release-bullseye.gpg

Perform a system upgrade

apt update && apt full-upgrade

Installing the Proxmox VE kernel

apt install pve-kernel-5.15
systemctl reboot

After the reboot we will install Proxmox VE

apt install proxmox-ve postfix open-iscsi

Removing the Unnecessary Debia Kernel

apt remove linux-image-amd64 'linux-image-5.10*'

Updating grub


Remove os-probe

apt remove os-prober

Installation is complete and we can now go to the proxmox vm control panel at https://your-ip-address:8006
