This tutorial will guide you through the setup of a fully-featured seedbox running on a Debian or Ubuntu system, including:
  • libtorrent 0.13.0
  • rTorrent 0.9
  • ruTorrent Web UI (3.0)
This guide has been tested with Debian 6 (x86_64) and Ubuntu 11.04 (x86_64).

To start, access your VPS via SSH (as the root user) and do the following to update your platform and install some required dependencies:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install subversion build-essential automake libtool libcppunit-dev libcurl3-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev unzip unrar-free curl libncurses-dev
# apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-cli php5-curl
Enable scgi for Apache:
# apt-get install libapache2-mod-scgi
# ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/scgi.load /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/scgi.load
Install XMLRPC:
# mkdir /install;cd /install
# svn checkout http://xmlrpc-c.svn.sourceforge.net/...mlrpc-c/stable xmlrpc-c
# cd xmlrpc-c
# ./configure --disable-cplusplus
# make
# make install
Intall libtorrent:
# cd /install
# wget http://vps6.net/src/libtorrent-0.13.0.tar.gz
# tar xvf libtorrent-0.13.0.tar.gz
# cd libtorrent-0.13.0
# ./autogen.sh
# ./configure
# make
# make install
Install rTorrent:
# cd /install
# wget http://vps6.net/src/rtorrent-0.9.0.tar.gz
# cd rtorrent-0.9.0
# ./autogen.sh
# ./configure --with-xmlrpc-c
# make
# make install
# ldconfig
Create required directories:
# mkdir /home/seeder1/rtorrent
# mkdir /home/seeder1/rtorrent/.session
# mkdir /home/seeder1/rtorrent/watch
# mkdir /home/seeder1/rtorrent/download
Setup .rtorrent.rc file (rTorrent config):
# cd ~/
# wget http://vps6.net/src/.rtorrent.rc
# cp .rtorrent.rc /home/seeder1/
(Edit the settings in .rtorrent.rc, like max upload/download speed, max connected peers, etc, as needed.)

Install rTorrent:
# cd /install
# wget http://vps6.net/src/rutorrent-3.0.tar.gz
# tar xvf rutorrent-3.0.tar.gz
# mv rutorrent /var/www
# wget http://vps6.net/src/plugins-3.0.tar.gz
# tar xvf plugins-3.0.tar.gz
# mv plugins /var/www/rutorrent
# rm -rf /var/www/rutorrent/plugins/darkpal
# chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/rutorrent
Secure /rutorrent:
# a2enmod ssl
# a2enmod auth_digest
# a2enmod scgi
# openssl req $@ -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -out /etc/apache2/apache.pem -keyout /etc/apache2/apache.pem
# chmod 600 /etc/apache2/apache.pem
# htdigest -c /etc/apache2/passwords seedbox seeder1
(Enter a password of your choice when prompted, you will use this to log in to the ruTorrent web UI.)
# cd /etc/apache2/sites-available/
# rm -rf default
# wget http://vps6.net/src/default
# a2ensite default-ssl
# /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
Install screen:
# apt-get install screen
Start rTorrent in a detached shell using screen:
# screen -fa -d -m rtorrent
(To start rtorrent automatically when the VPS is booted, add the above command to /etc/rc.local)

You can now access ruTorrent at http://xx.xx.xx.xx/rutorrent/ (replace xx.xx with your server's IP address). You should be greeted with a login prompt, where the username is "seeder1" and the password is the one you set above in the "secure /rutorrent" section.

please note a majority of hosts/datercenters will not allow torrents on their servers so these commands if used can be breaching your hosts TOS.

Sure, if you are going to host seedboxes you should check if host is allow it with their TOS or use specialized hosts

I would recommend a specialized VPS or dedicated seedbox host such as seedmybox.com

Think of trying narrow specialized servers.
