Ventrilo server installation

I used Debian 6 but this tutorial also applies to other Linux distributions like CentOS or Ubuntu.

Ventrilo server without a license is for hosting 8 slot server. If you need more slots you need to buy the license from ventrilo, or rent a ventrilo server.


1. Download server binary file from ventrilo web site.
Ventrilo - Download


2. Start FileZilla and do the following:

A. Enter your IP in the field but with sftp:// prefix. For example:
B. Enter for the username root
C. Enter your root password
D. Press Quickconnect
E. In the remote site field enter /tmp and press enter to navigate to that directory
F. Navigate to your downloaded file in explorer window and drag & drop it on the empty folder.
G. Wait for the transfer to complete.

3. Start putty and login to your server with root privileges.
4. Navigate to the /tmp directory with this command

cd /tmp
5. After that type the following in the putty window to extract the contents of the archive
tar -zxf ventrilo_srv-3.0.3-Linux-i386.tar.gz
6. Move the folder to the home directory
mv ventsrv/ /home/
7. Navigate to the /home/ventsrv/ directory
cd /home/ventsrv/
8. Start the screen (you need this in order for the server to stay online
9. Start the server finally
10. Press Ctrl + A + D to exit the screen and to leave the ventrilo running in background. You can now exit putty and try your server.

Hope I helped!

Best Regards!
