Arch Linux upgrading

UPDATE: due to lack of interest from our users, we have discontinued our Arch linux OpenVZ templates.

A warning and advise to those brave enough to run Arch Linux on an OpenVZ VPS:

Never run unattended upgrades / upgrades from cron on an Arch Linux VPS. Some upgrades can break your VPS and make it unusable. Especially upgrades of pacman, glibc, etc. Before upgrading your Arch linux VPS always make a backup first - you can create a snapshot of your VPS using the central backup feature in SolusVM. We also advise you to not apply updates to your Arch VPS the same day they are released, unless these are some critical security updates. Instead wait a few days or weeks, read the Arch forums, see if other users experienced any problems with the updates, etc.
