    Hello
    I use a baremetal server and centminmod has as Public IP the private IP
    and if i try to restart network i get the message

    Restarting network (via systemctl): Failed to restart network.service: Unit network.service is masked.


    So i cannot add vhost

    which web host ? server plan ? using server default provided centos 7 OS image ? or custom image ? If custom image, might want to ask web host what they changed in their image network service wise

    what's output for these commands
    Code (Text):
    ls -lah /etc/systemd/system/
    

    Code (Text):
    systemctl list-unit-files --no-pager

    and
    Code (Text):
    systemctl list-unit-files --no-pager | grep -i network
    

    Code (Text):
    ls -lah /usr/lib/systemd/system/ | grep -I Network
    

    Code (Text):
    systemctl status network
    

    Code (Text):
    systemctl restart network
    

    Might want to use CODE tags for code How to use forum BBCODE code tags :)

    Seems the network service has been masked in systemd either by yourself or the centos 7 default image used by your server provider. If it's the later you might want to ask your web host support why it's masked and whether there are any negative consequences of unmasking in relation to your server's network configuration.

    You can unmask it via command
    Code (Text):
    systemctl unmask network.service

    I also need more help.
    When creating vhost shows me that the server IP is the private not the public

    Code:
    systemctl restart network
    not responding

    i don't see a device with public inet line ? only the private ip ? or is public ip IPv6 only ?

    You'd have to contact scaleway support and get them to explain or check if your network configuration is correct. They may have a unique setup which maybe Centmin Mod can't auto detect properly.

    well Centmin Mod doesn't touch network config just assumes certain normal default CentOS network configs are in order. Easyengine uses Ubuntu and not CentOS, so could be due to their CentOS provided images' network configs being incorrect.
