Red Discord Bot: Ubuntu Installation

Note: For security reasons, do not install Red DiscordBot on the root account.


Begin by initiating a terminal session. Next, you'll update your Ubuntu VPS and install some necessary packages:

apt-get update

apt-get install python3.5-dev python3-pip build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev git libopus-dev unzip -y


Now you will clone the bot:

git clone -b develop --single-branch


The bot needs to be updated and installed:

cd Red-DiscordBot



When the bot starts, select "Install requirements" and then choose from options 1 and 2.

You'll now need to create a bot account.

To run the bot you'll just need to run the command used earlier,

cd Red-DiscordBot
