How to install?

To create a virtual server with TorrServer, just buy any basic virtual hosting plan with Ubuntu OS and, after connecting through the Putty program, enter the following command in its console;

apt-get update |apt-get install curl -y
mkdir -p ${dir}
case $(uname -m) in
i386) architecture=”386″ ;;
i686) architecture=”386″ ;;
x86_64) architecture=”amd64″ ;;
arm) dpkg –print-architecture | grep -q “arm64″ && architecture=”arm64″ || architecture=”arm7″ ;;
url=$(curl –silent | grep TorrServer-linux-${architecture} | head -1 | awk -F \” ‘{print $2}’)
wget -O ${dir}/torrserver${url}
chmod +x ${dir}/torrserver
cat << EOF > /etc/systemd/system/torrserver.service
Description = TorrServer
After =
User = root
Group = root
Type = simple
NonBlocking = true
ExecStart = ${dir}/torrserver -d ${dir} -p 8090
ExecReload = /bin/kill -HUP \${MAINPID}
ExecStop = /bin/kill -INT \${MAINPID}
TimeoutSec = 30
WorkingDirectory = ${dir}
Restart = on-failure
RestartSec = 5s
#LimitNOFILE = 4096
WantedBy =
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl start torrserver.service
systemctl enable torrserver.service
echo -e “\nTorrServer Online – installation is complete\n” >/dev/pts

After writing this command, you will be able to connect to your server through its IP address with port 8090 (which can be changed in advance in the code above).
