Hello Everybody,

Does anyone know how to set a VPS on Arubacloud.com?

Preferably on Linux, is a cheaper solution?

Thank you,
Robert

yes.

On Ubuntu 18.04 you need to install wine32 and use a 32 bit prefix to make it work.

My start script:

env WINEPREFIX=/home/XXX/prefix32 WINEARCH='win32' /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine /home/XXX/prefix32/drive_c/MT01/terminal.exe &

/opt/wine-staging/bin/wine needs to be replaced with /usr/bin/wine on Ubuntu 18.04

How is the CPU usage compared to windows? I heard MT4 is more taxing on the CPU when running wine.

Also do you use KVM or OPENVZ emulation?

Thanks

Windows has always been more unresponsive than Linux, even Linux + wine. One vps instance (OVH or Hetzner) can run 3 mt4 and still be much more responsive than Windows have ever been.

KVM/OPENVZ: I run whatever system used by the providers.

I suggest setting wine up on your desktop PC first then transfer the whole prefix32 directory to the vps.

Also install x11vnc and fluxbox on the vps to run the graphical userface.

I finally ventured in Linux.
setup ubuntu and Xfce.
How to setup so that MT4 is restarted when Linux VPS reboot?

Also it seems each MT4 uses 100K of RAM in Linux which is much more than Windows (40K).
