Shadowsocks server build.

I Create a Droplet(Select CentOS 6.5 x64), and use putty configuration to build Shadowsocks server: 1. yum install epel-release; 2. yum update, after this, an error oucured: “grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template grubby: doing this would leave no kernel entries. Not writing out new config.” How can I fix this error? thanks a lot.

Hey David,

How are you?

I am trying to build one too with shadow socks. Question: are you using the proxy server in China? if so what kind of speeds are you getting?

You can use DigitalOcean or any other VPS to set up your own OpenVPN or ShadowSocksR servers.

Note it’s ShadowSocksR, not ShadowSocks. ShadowSocksR obfuscates traffic which is considered safer and has better ability to penetrate censorship.

You may need this.


There may be some hints.Just follow it.
After minutes for setting it up,just enjoy it.

For installing Shadowsocks on a DigitalOcean droplet, you can take a look at this very detailed tutorial:
