OpenVZ - how to manually restore a VPS from another host or backup

There are 3 pieces that are required to restore and make it work (of course consider if any kernel modules need to re-enabled and if you need to change the IPs):

  1. Copy the vz/private/VEID directory to /vz/private
  2. Copy the /etc/vz/conf/VEID.conf to /etc/vz/conf/
  3. mkdir /vz/root/VEID

After that you should be able to see the VE in vzlist -a

You should then be able to start it normally.
