Happy New Year and best health wishes.

Can you tell me on the one hand, if we can install Proxmox on a server running with Centos?

On the other hand, if you can install Proxmox on a Web server running with Centos, how do you do this installation? (Ssh?)

Moreover, if the installation is only feasible on a Debian, how to realize it in Ssh?

Please Thank you

Have a good day
no, proxmox is heavily built on debian, it would be quite some work to port it to centos (if it would work at all)
