Project QuickBox-Lite

Project DOC

This project is a modified version of the QuickBox community edition. This project aims to build a lightweight QuickBox software kit. Most of the functions of QuickBox CE are retained, but only the most commonly used stable third party software included. The prebuilt BT client also available here, which can significantly reduce the installation time as well as CPU requirement to compile them. Most of the software is available as modules. The panel no longer needs the support of ruTorrent. You can select what you need, and this is also why the project named "Lite".

Main feature

  1. Graphical installation guide (Multi-language available)
  2. Use Nginx instead of apache
  3. Modular installation
  4. Latest OS support
  5. up to date apps (prebuild deb packages included)

Script status

VersionGNU v3.0 License

When upgrade from 1.3.2 to 1.3.3, very recommend to use SSH with

box update quickbox
. You also need to run the command twice to finish the service upgrade. If you are using WebUI to finish the upgrade, please also upgrade twice.

From version 1.3.6, the php version has upgraded to 7.4, so you can remove old php7.2 with

sudo apt purge php7.2*
when you don't need it anymore.

How to install

before install

Hardware requirement:

  • CPU: At least a 64bit Compatible x86_64 CPU
  • RAM: large than 1GB (recommend more for better performance)
  • Storage: 20GB HDD (for seeding, you need more)

OS Support (amd64 only):


Server Support:

  • Bare-metal server
  • Dedicated server
  • VPS with KVM/Xen/VMware (OpenVZ is not supported)


grsec is built into OVH's custom kernel and it absolutely wrecks havoc when using these panels where we depend on the ability for one user (www-data) to see the processes of another running user ($username). This can be seen clearly by using a task manager such as htop. With grsec enabled you can only see the processes owned by your user unless you run htop as root. As such, it is highly recommended to use the stock kernel for your distribution or at the very least installing an OVH kernel that is not compiled with grsec If you are using So You Start (SYS) as a host, you should opt to use the distribution kernel. You will see this as a check box option when installing your server. Otherwise, QuickBox will handle this for you on install.
