How to install minimal container template on a Proxmox Server

Linux containers essentially break the two pieces of an operating system up even further allowing the two pieces to be managed independently, the container host, and the container image. The container host is made up of an operating system kernel and small userspace that has a minimal set of libraries and daemons necessary to run containers. The container image is made up of the libraries, interpreters, and configuration files of an operating system userspace, as well as the developer’s application code. Below are the steps to install minimal container template on a Proxmox Server
