No network after installing NethServer on World4you VPS

OK, I found a vServer on world4you.com and try to install Nethserver on Centos7. I think there shoud be a howto?

When I try to install nethserver on the vServer I just can go to this point:

nethserver-install

After this I lose my ssh connection to the vServer and I dont know how to go further…

Do you have VNC access to the VPS in some way? It could be that you ip address has changed in some way during the install… If you could check IP settings it might give a clue.

No, just ssh.

Edit: I just have this when I ssh to the vServer:

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: venet0: <BROADCAST,POINTOPOINT,NOARP,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default
    link/void
    inet 127.0.0.1/32 scope host venet0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/24 brd xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx scope global venet0:0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Could you connect again after you lost connection during Neth install or did you setup a new centos image?
Were the network settings like that before you installed Nethserver?

Maybe wrong Neth network settings?

db networks show

BTW, World4you may support VNC too, at least it’s mentioned in their FAQ:

https://www.world4you.com/faq/en/server.html#article-sonderzeichen-vnc-viewer

No, I was not able to reconnect…

In the meantime I saw this but I cannot find any further Infos abt how to use VNC…

Can you reboot/restart your server from world4you admin interface after the process hang?

Maybe try this before Neth install to make Neth configure the right interface:

ip link set dev venet0:0 alias eth0

or

ip link set dev venet0 alias eth0

…and deactivate changes to venet0 before Neth install:

chattr +i /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-venet0

BTW, I moved the posts about VPS install to a new topic…
