Recent Guide for Setting up VPS/Dedicated Server for use with Tribot?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Just like the title says, I am looking for a recent guide (preferably within the year) for setting up a VPS/Dedicated Server to use for Tribot. The one I found from 2019 leads to a dead link, which is why I am posting here. I would really like to look into this but would like to view some kind of in-depth setup guide before I take the plunge. Thanks!

There's not really anything special about it. "The cloud" is just somebody else's computer, after all.

If you buy a Windows VPS, enter its details into a remote desktop program and install Java and TRiBot as normal. The only difference will be that Windows Server has some annoying security related defaults which means that you might have to click through a few more "are you sure?" prompts.

A Linux VPS (any distro) is a similar story. The main difference is that you will probably have to install a window manager and VNC server so that you can access a graphical desktop remotely. Also I would pick an older distro, like Debian 9 or Ubuntu 18.04 so that you can easily install Java 8.

Thank you for your response! By Remote Desktop program, do you mean something like TeamViewer? How difficult is it to install those programs on a Linux-based server (for a novice)?

I think he means something along these lines for the VNC viewer.

https://www.tightvnc.com/

or

https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/viewer/

Basically you want to SSH to the linux server VIA PuTTY.

https://www.putty.org/

You'll then need to use the SSH tunnel to install the VNC viewer. You will then be able to connect to your server VIA the VNC viewer and have a graphical interface where you can now install java and Tribot and start botting from there.

 

Cheers!

Thank you so much for this explanation! Just to be clear, none of this would be necessary if I used a windows VPS, correct?

Hey I recommend using @Fluffee's server setup for linux servers. 

Makes setting up linux servers extremely easy :). You just need to login to your server and type one line of code and follow the on screen prompts. The result is a server with all the essentials needed for botting, while saving a lot of CPU from using linux instead of windows.

I used it a month ago and it all worked perfectly.

Thank you! I hope this is idiot-proof, as I am a novice when it comes to this! :D

Seen this and glad someone has a review of it working as of recently. I was going to get it a shot because it seems very easy and saves time!

If there are any issues with it, let me know! It's possible newer operating systems may not work, as I haven't personally tried them? But I can't say for certain 🙂

Thank you! I opted  for the one OS that you list in the post, so I hope it'll work out. After your program runs, everything for running Tribot (with LG) should be ready to go, right?

Which OS did you do this on? I can't seem to get it to work on Debian 7...

You should avoid such an old release. Debian 7 (Wheezy) was released in 2013 and Debian releases only get updates for 5 years, so it's likely that you're running crusty old vulnerable software just waiting for somebody to exploit it. It's like exposing a Windows XP machine to the modern internet, it'll probably get some disease and die.

If you want to use old software, you should go with RHEL/CentOS. iirc CentOS 7 will get security updates up until some time in 2024, making it a better choice for running any legacy scripts/applications.

  • Our picks

    • Gradle is a build tool used to accelerate developer productivity.

      We recently setup a Maven repository (TRiBot Central) to make it easier for scripters to create scripts. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-central/-/packages

      Furthermore, we've released a simple Gradle project to make it easy to run TRiBot and develop scripts for it. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-gradle-launcher

      The goals of TRiBot Central are to:

      Deliver updates to TRiBot faster


      Better organize TRiBot's dependencies (AKA dependancies)


      Make it easier to develop scripts for TRiBot


      Make it easier to use and run TRiBot


      Note: TRiBot won't be able to run scripts from within this project until TRiBot's next release.

    • Hi everyone,

      I'd like to thank everyone for their patience in this transition period. Since last week, we've worked out the remaining bugs with this integration.

      Some users have still been having issues with connecting their forums account to their Auth0 account. To resolve this, we've imported all forums accounts into Auth0.

      Unfortunately, the accounts which were imported today were using an unsupported password hashing algorithm. Hence, random passwords were set during the import.

      What does this mean for me?

      If you've previously linked your forums account to your Auth0 account, you don't have to do anything. Nothing changes for you.


      If you haven't logged in via our new login yet,

      Try logging in with your forums email address and the last password you used


      If you are unable to login, please use the "Forgot password" tool on the login page:
      Follow the instructions to reset your password

    • Hello everyone,

      Last week we tried to roll out Auth0 Login, but we lost that battle. Now it's time to win the war!

      Important changes

      When logging into the client, you'll now have to enter your Auth0 account credentials instead of your forums credentials

      Note: 2FA is still handled through your forums account (for the time being)



      Changes for existing users

      You'll have to link your Auth0 account to your forums account here: https://tribot.org/forums/settings/login/?service=11


      Auth0 accounts have been created for most existing users. Please use your forums email address and password to login.



      Important notes

      Make sure to verify your email address upon creating a new Auth0 account


      When we mention your Auth0 account, we mean your account used for auth.tribot.org as displayed below

    • To better support the upcoming changes (TRiBot X, new repository), we're switching our login handler to Auth0. Instead of logging in with the standard form, you'll now be required to login through our Auth0 application.

      All existing accounts which have been used within approximately the past year have been imported into Auth0 using the same email and password combination which has been stored on the forums.

      What does this mean for users?

      Your account credentials are now even more securely stored


      You'll be able to login via Facebook, Google, and others in the future


      Is there anything users have to do differently now?

      Existing users: You'll have to login with the standard login, open your Account Settings, then link your Auth0 account


      New users: You'll be redirected to our Auth0 app (auth.tribot.org) where you'll be able to create an account


      Why was this change made?

      The new apps we are creating (such as the new repository) aren't able to use the forums to handle user logins


      To centralize all user accounts in one area


      To ensure that the client login doesn't go down when the forums are having problems


      To speed up our development


      Other considerations

      There's no documentation or official support for using Invision Community combined with Auth0, so there are still a few kinks we're working out


      We're in the works of creating an account management panel specifically for Auth0 accounts (ETA August)


      It's not possible to change email addresses for the time being (this will be resolved this August)


      Changing passwords is a weird process for the time being. To change your password, you'll have to use the "Don't remember your password" tool on the Auth0 login page

    • Over the past month, we've been working hard on TRiBot's new repository - a much needed update. This change has been deemed necessary for TRiBot X, and will allow us to really speed up development of all aspects of TRiBot.

      Today we are going to share what we've been working on!


      Now you must be wondering what kind of features the new repository will have.... well, you'll have to be patient for a little while longer. We're still figuring out various technical aspects so we can't provide answers to all possible questions. We're also focusing on development rather than writing about it so that everyone can get access to our latest developments at lightning speed. I will however answer a few users' questions.

      We're planning on a release of this early to mid August, giving users some goodies before TRiBot X's release.

      Thank you all for being patient. I hope everyone is excited as much as I am!
