Fix:Unable to ping veth device on proxmox

Virtual Ethernet devices of the OpenVZ VM’s inside ProxMox is connected to a bridge. After installing ProxMox and creating virtual nodes, I found that public ips allocated inside VM’s were not reachable to world.

A quick fix for this issue is to ensure that Proxy ARP and IP Forwarding is configured fine.

Check these lines:

# ifconfig vzbr0 0
# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/vzbr0/forwarding
# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/vzbr0/proxy_arp

You can read more information about OpenVZ Virtual Ethernet devices in bridge mode configuration check this link.

Fix: VirtualMin Suexec command configured to run under /var/www

This is a very common issue found in VirtualMin

The Suexec command on your system is configured to only run scripts under /var/www, but the Virtualmin base directory is /home. CGI and PHP scripts run as domain owners will not be executed.

To resolve this you will have to recompile apache with /home as a base directory for mod_suexec module. Or, mount /var/www as mount if you want to keep the configuration unchanged.

An alternate solution is to disable “Automatic SuExec directive” under VirtualMin’s System Settings -> Server Template.

This should resolve the issue.
