Download and Install Dropbox on your Seedbox
In order to sync your seedbox and Dropbox files, you need to grab the Dropbox installer and integrate it to your seedbox. Connect to your seedbox via SSH clients like PuTTY and Bitvise, and copy the code below:
wget -O dropbox.tar.gz http://www.dropbox.com/download/?plat=lnx.x86_64 tar -xvzf dropbox.tar.gz
The above code will do the magic of installing Dropbox, thus you are now all set to run it using the command below:
A URL will be displayed, you have to copy and paste it to your web browser’s address bar. Log-in using your preferred Dropbox account (if you are not yet signed in), and do the necessary authentication. Check on the SSH client and you should see a confirmation if linking has been successful.Client successfully linked, Welcome User!
Next, input the code below to the SSH client in order to download the control program needed to sync and monitor files from the two clouds.
mkdir -p ~/bin
wget -O ~/bin/dropbox.py “http://www.dropbox.com/download?dl=packages/dropbox.py”
chmod 755 ~/bin/dropbox.py
Finally, link a specific folder in your Dropbox account to your seedbox:
ln -s ~/SyncedFiles
Presto! You can now drag files via Dropbox to the specified folder and sync it to your seedbox, or the other way around.
