Apache 2.4.3 from Source on a zVPS CentOS 6 ServerIf you like running bleeding edge software then you'll like this!
First lets install the required packages to build Apache httpd:
Next change directory and get the required source files:
Now set your source files free .... Well unzip them at least!
The APR sources are a requirement for building apache, so move them into the correct folders inside the apache source:
Ok we are almost ready to build Apache, however we will need the PCRE library to compile it, which needs compiling as well, keep going as we are nearly there!

Restoring a Logical Volume (LVM)What's this button do?
Today it became necessary to restore a deleted / terminated SolusVM Xen PV base VPS stored on a Logical Volume. This guide is primarlly written for restoring a SolusVM Xen virtual private server LV but can easily be applied to restore any Logical Volume. Documentation seemed very scarce on this topic so here is a guide which worked fine for us, however use at your own risk and research any commands you're not sure on how to use.Step 1 - Secure Volume Group from LV Creations
A SolusVM user has deleted his/her VPS, gone forever right? Incorrect, if you (the admin) acts very quickly!
Great, hopefully you secured the server quick enough. Next we need to ssh to the dedicated server which the VPS's Logical Volume resides on.
Warning - restoring this data can be tricky, if this was the last change then this guide will work without issues, however if this wasn't the last change to any logical volume you will need to perform a difference change and create your own .vg file to restore the LV Meta Data.
Great we have restored the Meta Data so LVM now knows where to find the old Logical Volume on the hard drive, lets get it reactivated and registered with the Operating System again. Run the following commands:
Create the VPS in SolusVM with import mode turned on. You will be prompted for the old vm ID e.g vm123
