As requested by one of my readers, here's how to set up rclone with Google Drive for use with a seedbox.
I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and this seedbox script: https://github.com/arakasi72/rtinst
I assume that's already set up nicely, now we move on to rclone.
First, we update and install what we need (unzip):
sudo apt update ; sudo apt install -y unzip
Then, we'll download the rclone files into your home directory:
cd ~ wget --no-check-certificate https://downloads.rclone.org/rclone-v1.39-linux-amd64.zip
After that, we unzip it:
Then change into it's folder:
Now, we'll install it to /usr/bin/ so that we can call it from anywhere:
sudo cp rclone /usr/bin/
Now, it's time to set it up!
It will ask a bunch of questions, here's how I answered them (just do it in the same order, only change the name of the "remote" from gdrivetest to whatever you wanna call it)
n gdrivetest 10 <enter> <enter> <enter> n
Here it will give you a link, go ahead and open that on your computer, sign into the google account you want to use and then it will give you a key for example
Go ahead and paste that code (not mine, yours!) into the rclone installer and press
n y q
So, right now we just created a remote called gdrive test.
To test it, now type:
rclone lsd gdrivetest:
Be sure to keep the : at the end, oh, and change it from gdrivetest to whatever you named it.
You should see a list of files on your Google Drive. If so, success!
Now, to put files onto your Google Drive, let's assume you want to copy a folder and it's files from /var/media to a folder on your Google Drive called media, let's do this:
rclone copy /var/media gdrivetest:media
And you've successfully set up rclone with Google Drive :)
