Notes

Some notes before we start.

I’ll be doing this walkthrough using an OVH SSD VPS with Ubuntu 18.04. You’ll need something with a better CPU. In this section we’ll be covering setting up the basics and covering SSH Keys and Key based authentication.

Everything is relative in this guide. If you change the location of folders to instead be /home/user/ you’ll also want to update the crons and rclone remotes. Same if you change the rclone remote names etc.

To reiterate, I’m only using a VPS as proof of concept and nothing more. Typically cheap VPS’s don’t come with much storage and you’ll want at least 50gb or so to provide some buffer (and seed). The CPU will also be nowhere near strong enough. If you want to keep things cheap, look into the Kimsufis and not a 3 dollar VPS!
