Setting up Install Process

Error: Package is not found
Error: /usr/share/vzyum/bin/yum failed, exitcode=1


Package mod_python is not found on repositories & mirrorlists configured for the template.


Make sure mod_python is present on repositories configured for OS template which was used for container creation. If necessary, add proper repository to the file /vz/template/%distribution%/%release%/%arch%/config/os/default/repositories. Replace %distribution%, %release% and %arch% with real values applicable to your case. To find out which template was used for container creation you can execute following command:

# vzlist 100 -Ho ostemplate

Example of repositories file contents:

# cat /vz/template/centos/6/x86_64/config/os/default/repositories

NOTE: mirrorlist file should contain links to mirrorlists, not to repositories, and vice-versa.

Example of mirrorlist file contents:

# cat /vz/template/centos/6/x86_64/config/os/default/mirrorlist
