    Quick Advisory Notice(s) on QuickBox

    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.
