How to install Installing SolusVM

Solus Virtual Manager (SolusVM) is a powerful GUI based VPS management system with full OpenVZ, Linux KVM, Xen Paravirtualization and Xen HVM support.
Notes before Installing

You CANNOT Install a SolusVM Master on a Xen/KVM Slave Directly, you can however install your Master on a Xen VPS which is hosted on this slave, it just cant be installed directly onto the slave

This Script should NEVER be used to upgrade SolusVM to the latest version, doing so will destroy your installation of SolusVM

DO NOT use this installer on servers that contain any other control panel (cPanel, Directadmin etc..) Always use a clean install of CentOS/RHEL/Scientific!
