Here are some instructions on how to setup a virtual server for CrushFTP from This was for CentOS, 1GB of RAM, $10 per month. They take about 5 minutes to have the server available for use.
First, you need to use the OS X Terminal, or a SSH program like Putty on Windows to get connected to the server to set it up.
Enter your password when prompted. Answer 'yes' if asked to accept the SSH key. You are now connected and can do all the below commands.

Become the root user if you aren't already from the initial connection. Enter your password when prompted.


Install java.

yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk
For some other distros, this may be the proper command:

Wait for install to progress, answer "y" when prompted.

Get in the folder where we want to download CrushFTP.

cd /var/opt/
