Install openITCOCKPIT in LXC



First of all, we do not recommend to use openITCOCKPIT in a LXC for productive purposes!

If you either want to try an installation, make sure the following points are suffused and follow the steps below.

- You should have root access to the LXC host (tested with Proxmox LXC)

- You can create a container on local storage (as raw file)

- You have internet access ;)


1. Install docker-ce on the host system (Link to the docker documentation)

2. Create a privileged container

This can not be changed after container creation.

We recommend choosing a current Ubuntu template.

3. Choose local storage with storage type 'dir' to create a raw image! (zfs or lvm do not work!)

4. Give the container 4 CPU cores (x86-64), 4 GB RAM and 20 GB storage (our recommendation)

5. After creation edit the configuration file of your new container

Open /etc/pve/lxc/$ID.conf on your host machine. Replace $ID with your container id (e.g. 204).

If you do not use Proxmox, your configuration file is in a different path.

Maybe you can edit it using the lxc command and your container name ($NAME)

lxc config edit $NAME

Add this line:

lxc.apparmor.profile: unconfined

6. Start the new container and run the default openITCOCKPIT installation inside the LXC
