Creating 3proxy server
As servers are provided by hosting providers, you need first to sign up for them to know who they are dealing with.
Signing up at hosting provider
- Enter your email address
- Create and enter a password
Click Create an Account
Get into your email account and complete registration by clicking a link in the confirmation email
The registration is completed. The next step is adding a bank card.
Adding a debit/credit card
After registration you have to enter payment information. You need to have a debit/credit card which is accepted for online payments.
Use English while entering the data.
Then, we move on to the third step – choosing and creating a server.
Creating a personal server
Let’s get down to how to create a personal server (you can also create a website or personal cloud drive like Yandex disk or DropBox on this server). The DigitalOcean provider calls them Droplet.
Click Create Droplet and then you will be redirected to the page for creating server configurations:
- In Choose an image section choose the Ubuntu distribution (16.04×64 recommended)
Choose a tariff of 5$ per month or 0,007 cents per hour
Choose a datacenter region, which in the future will emulate your location (if you select the US city, the IP will be American). Moreover, it should be noted that the closer to the server you are, the faster you will load pages and files
At the end click CREATE to create Droplet (a server)
Creating takes 2-5 minutes. Then you will receive an email with the server’s IP address, login (usually root), and a password.
You can also learn IP on the main Droplet control page.
Let’s move on to creating VPN from a regular server.
Creating a proxy server
Further we will tell how to connect to the server and what packages need to be installed to make it work!
Connecting to the server
In order to somehow manage the server (command line), you need a tool. In our case it’s the PuTTY utility, which you need to download and install.
After installation, run PuTTY, specify the IP address and click OPEN.
- Then you need to enter your login (root)
- You are required to change the received password immediately
ATTENTION! WHILE ENTERING THE PASSWORD, THE LINE REMAINS EMPTY AS IF YOU ENTER NOTHING
- password – “old”, current password
- (Curent) UNIX password – confirm password
- Enter new UNIX password – enter a new password
- Retype new Unix password – confirm a new password
Configuring 3proxy server
Update the Ubuntu server software:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
Copy the script to install the project on the VPS server:
wget --no-check-certificate https://raw.github.com/h1777/3proxy-socks/master/3proxyinstaller.sh
Grant the rights to the script:
sudo chmod + x 3proxyinstaller.sh
Run the script:
After the script completes, you must specify your login and password, for this, we edit the file /etc/3proxy/.proxyauth using the nano editor:
## addusers in this format: #user: CL: password ## see for documentation: http://www.3proxy.ru/howtoe.asp#USERS youLOGIN: CL: youPASSWORD
After the changes are made, you can run 3proxy:
You just need to configure the SOCKS5 connection on your devices!
