To successfully localize a container, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop the container if it is running:

    vzctl stop CTID

    replacing CTID with the numeric identifier of the container.

  2. Increase the disk size of the container to at least 1.5 GB (if it is currently smaller than 1.5 GB):

    vzctl set CTID --diskspace 1500000 --save
  3. Start the container:

    vzctl start CTID

    Note: It is important to restart the container before starting the MUI language pack installation if you are changing the disk size on a running container.

  4. Download the corresponding image with the required language:

  5. Copy and paste the required language file to a folder in the container.

  6. Open "Regional and Language Options" in Control Panel inside the container.

  7. Click the "Keyboard and Languages" tab.

  8. Under Display Language, click "Install/uninstall languages," and then follow the steps. When it asks to point to the language pack's folder location, set it to the folder from step 5.

  9. Finish installation and restart the container.
