AutoVM Installation on Ubuntu 18.04

by | Oct 4, 2021

Stuck with AutoVM Installation on Ubuntu 18.04? We are here for you.

With AutoVM, we can manage virtual machines(VM) on the VMware ESXI virtualization which allows the VPS providers to manage full automation of support and sales process.

As part of our Server Management Services, we assist our customers with several AutoVM queries.

Today, let us see how our techs proceed with the installation.


AutoVM Installation on Ubuntu 18.04

AutoVm helps VPS providers to increase service quality that can support all ESXi versions.

  • Automatic installation

We download and deploy Ubuntu 18.04 or install the iso without any configuration on the ESXi server. Then we configure a static IP address.

To do so, we run:

$ cd /tmp && wget -O && bash

Once done, we will see MySQL and login information:

Login information:
Username: [email protected]
Password: **************

If we log in to the web interface, we can change the Email id, username, and password:

X.X.X.X VPS Management – login MySQL information:
Username: autovm
Database: autovm
Password: *********

Now, to secure the databases, we run:

$ mysql_secure_installation
  • Manual installation

Moving ahead, let us see the methods our Support Techs employ to manually install AutoVM

a) Necessary packages

Generally, we recommend installing Ubuntu server version 18.04 with apache/nginx webserver.

In addition, we change the webserver root directory to the /web.

sudo apt install python-pip libpq-dev python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libldap2-dev libsasl2-dev libffi-dev git
sudo apt install php7.2-fpm php7.2-cli php7.2-mysql php7.2-mbstring php7.2-gd mysql-server php7.2-curl php7.2-zip php7.2-xml
pip install paramiko spur pycryptodome pysphere crypto netaddr

After that, we set the password on the database:

mysql -u root
create user 'autovm'@'localhost' identified with mysql_native_password by 'password';
* Enter your own password on 'password'
grant all privileges on *.* to 'autovm'@'localhost';
flush privileges;
create database autovm default character set utf8;

b) Download platform

In order to download the platform, we run:

git clone
chmod 777 -R autovm
cd autovm && php7.2 composer.phar install

Then we open the browser and go to the installation URL:


Once done, we remove the install on the web directory then enter:

php yii migrate

However, make sure not to remove the WEB directory.

To disable the log, we open the /web/index.php and comment two first lines.

c) Post-installation

Finally, we give permission to root directory again:

chmod 777 autovm

In short, we saw how our Support Techs go about the installation of AutoVM.
