Red Discord Bot: Debian Installation

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


Begin by initiating a terminal session. Next, you'll install the pre-requirements. You can copy and paste in these lines individually.

echo "deb jessie-backports main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get update

apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev git ffmpeg libopus-dev unzip -y


tar xvf Python-3.6.0.tgz

cd Python-3.6.0

./configure --enable-optimizations

make -j4

make altinstall

cd ..




Next, you'll clone the bot:

git clone -b develop --single-branch


Now update the bot requirements:

cd Red-DiscordBot


Select "Install Requirements", then choose between options 1 or 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
