How to install Outline VPN on a random VPS server
In Ountline Manager, when you add a new server, select an option called «Set up Outline everywhere».
It will show the following shell script for you.
sudo bash -c "$(wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Jigsaw-Code/outline-server/master/src/server_manager/install_scripts/install_server.sh)"
I suggest logging in to your server via ssh, then run
sudo su, and execute it.
In case of a problem, you could try solving it yourself by reading the script from the given url.
In my case, it did not want to start docker, so I did it manually.
After that everything worked like a charm.
It generated a small JSON which you need to paste into the form in Outline Manager.
It could complain about ports being closed by your server’s firewall.
I needed to open 2 ports:
21367 and 30564 (I’m pretty sure those are pseudo-random).
For that, on my CentOS, I was doing the following:
Check that the port is served by some service (
lsof -i -P |grep 21367).
Check that it is not allowed by the firewall (
iptables-save | grep 21367 should have an empty output).
Edit the config file (
vi /etc/services) by adding a string
outline 21367/tcp # Outline.
Add it to firewall rules with
firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=21367/tcp --permanent.
And apply with
Repeat the same for another port.
