SSH Options

There are three types of ssh_options which are described below:

  1. add_ssh_keys: Pass your own public SSH key in post to add that SSH key in your VPS.
  2. generate_keys: If you want to create new pair of keys then you will first need to generate using the following link: https://radwebhosting.com/client_area/knowledgebase/348/Add-SSH-Key.html Once you have made the pair you will need to pass it to the ADDVS calls using following variables : $post[sshkey'] = 'PUBLIC_KEY'; $post['private_key '] = 'PRIVATE_KEY';
  3. use_ssh_keys :If you want to use existing key then first you will need to get list of sshkey using the following link: https://radwebhosting.com/client_area/knowledgebase/349/List-SSH-Keys.html Once you have made the pair you will need to pass it to the ADDVS calls using following variables: $post[existing_key'][] = 'PUBLIC_KEY 1'; $post['existing_key '][] = 'PUBLIC_KEY 2';

Sample Code

PHP

<?php
    require_once('/usr/local/virtualizor/sdk/enduser.php');

    $key =  'your_api_key';
    $pass = 'your_api_pass';
    $ip = 'host_ip';

    $admin = new Virtualizor_Enduser_API($ip, $key, $pass);

    $post = array();
    $post['virt'] = 'kvm';
    $post['sgid'] = 8;
    $post['rootpass'] ='Test123!!';   
    $post['hostname'] = 'testcloud' ;
    $post['space'] = 20 ;
    $post['ram'] = 1024;
    $post['swapram'] = 1024;
    $post['bandwidth'] = 1000;
    $post['uid'] = 372;
    $post['cores'] = 2;
    $post['ips'] = 1;
    $post['vnc'] = 1;
    $post['vncpass'] = 'testvnc';
    $post['band_suspend'] = 1;
    $post['osreinstall_limit'] = 0;
    $post['osid'] = 955;
    $post['addvs'] = 1;

    $output = $admin->create($post);

    print_r(json_encode($output));
?>

Curl

curl -k -X POST -d "addvs=1&virt=kvm&sgid=8&rootpass=Test123!!&hostname=testcloud&space=20&ram=1024&swap=1024&bandwidth=1000&uid=372&cpu=256&cores=8&ips=1&vnc=1&vncpass=testvnc&osid=955" -L "https://vm1.apivps.com:4083/index.php?act=create&api=json&apikey=your_api_key&apipass=your_api_pass"
