How To Install Seedbox From Scratch Script


cheap seedbox 220 gb 100mbps unlimited traffic



This unattended script intends to automatically install a fresh multi-user seedbox and it was initially 100% based on this Copper’s setup tutorial: Dedicated server /Kimsufi /OVH /Seedbox setup – Rutorrent, Autodl-Irssi, ZNC, Ubuntu. The final result of your seedbox will be exactly the same and the changes we made in the original script were only to provide automation to the process, but one package was upgraded: Autodl-irssi is installed in version 1.31 and not 1.10. Changes were made to make it support a multi-user environment. So now this script is not 100% compatible with Copper’s tutorial anymore but it is mostly based on it.


Current Version: 2.1.9


Last stable version: 2.1.8

Step 0 – Warnings

If you have any problems, please first read THE FAQ: FAQ

If you don’t know Linux ENOUGH: DO NOT install this script on a non-OVH Host.

It is doable, but you’ll have to know Linux to solve some problems. DO NOT use capital letters, all your usernames should be written in lowercase.

DO NOT upgrade anything in your box, ask in the thread before even thinking about it.

DO NOT try to reconfigure packages using other tutorials.

Step 1

Install your operating system on a computer or a virtual machine

(all my tests were made on a virtualized [VirtualBox] operating system)

Step 2

Login to your server using an SSH client (PuTTY) using your root account, this also will be your seedbox username.

Step 3

Download the script and run it. Just copy and paste those commands on your terminal


wget -N

time bash ~/

Step 4

Just answer all script questions.

Step 5

Cross your fingers and wait for the installation to finish, this may take a while and an automatic reboot of your server will occur at the end.

Step 6

After reboot, use a browser (Firefox, Chrome…): To access your seedbox
