To make use of the GitHub repo if you’re coming from the old QuickBox/QuickBox repo or GitLab (all future updates posted here!)

[1] login to your server via ssh. Gain root access with sudo su followed up with cd to access your /root directory. Once in your /root directory, type the following to remove your current local QuickBox respositories.

rm -rf ~/QuickBox

If you are already located on the GitHub repo as of v2.4.9, run the following to easily update to the new v2.5.3 QuickBox/QB repo:

wget -O /usr/local/bin/quickbox/system/updateQuickBox https://raw.githubusercontent.com/QuickBox/QB/master/packages/system/updateQuickBox; \
dos2unix $(find /usr/local/bin/quickbox -type f); \
chmod +x $(find /usr/local/bin/quickbox -type f); \
updateQuickBox

[2] grab the current/future QuickBox repository with the following:

git clone https://github.com/QuickBox/QB /etc/QuickBox

[3] update your current update function by doing the following:

local_packages=/etc/QuickBox/packages/
rm -rf /usr/local/bin/quickbox
cp -r ${local_packages}/. /usr/local/bin/quickbox
dos2unix $(find /usr/local/bin/quickbox -type f)
chmod +x $(find /usr/local/bin/quickbox -type f)
cp -f /usr/local/bin/quickbox/system/reload /usr/bin/reload

[4] run the upgrade script to match any recent changes and to get you on your way:

box upgrade

Quick Advisory Notice(s) on QuickBox

A Note on ARM Architecture!

Nope, QuickBox is not compatible with ARM architecture. Use standard OS templates in the form of x86_x64. We additionally do not ever see QuickBox being compatible with such.

Please understand that we do not want to push this project as a means to supply a commercially used product, ie; seedbox provider – so keep this in mind – only if you wish to sale slots on your server. Though it is very multi-user friendly… it is also not free of it’s faults due to it’s high amount of capabilities and being publicly available. This is a community based project that is a measure of goodwill to be given to such an outspoken and freethinking community.

A Preview of Quick Box


This script has the following features

  • A multi-user environment, complete with scripts to add and delete users.
  • Linux Quota, to control how much space every user can use in the box. This can be controlled via the ‘setdisk‘ command.
  • Customized Seedbox Dashboard located at https://SERVER_IP/
  • HTTPs Downloads directory (https://SERVER_IP/${username}.downloads)
  • Obscures ports for ssh and ftp. SSH = 4747  | FTP = 5757  (note, this is not for security reasons… it’s simply a means to reduce bad bot hits from all over the web)
  • Creates a limited shell access environment. This gives your additional created users the ability to interact with their seedbox via ssh on port 4747 w/o having access to other users shells and/or root/sudo commands and functions.
