You must use one of the following Operating Systems:
Ubuntu Server 12.04 or 14.04
Debian 6.0 or 7.0
I highly suggest using Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS

#2 – Install Seedbox Software Using Automated Script

Login ass root via ssh to your server and use following commands:
wget –no-check-certificate
time bash ~/

Some Notes About Installation:
If the script asks for IP or Hostname: Provide only the IP
DO NOT use capital letters, all your usernames should be written in lowercase.
DO NOT upgrade anything in your box after installation or you could break something.
During install, it may ask at one point for updating cron.daily job, select yes; rest will be unattended.

The Script Will Install The Following
– ruTorrent 3.6 + official plugins
– rTorrent 0.9.2 or 0.9.3 or 0.9.4
– libTorrrent 0.13.2 or 0.13.3 or 0.13.4
– Deluge 1.3.6 (current stable) multi-user
