    Hey,

    there are a lot of VPS offers which contain Unix/Linux/Debian/CentOS and so on. Does anybody know how I can install scrapebox without the remote desktop I have with windows vps?

    And how can I install SB with Plesk?

    Sorry if I mess up all the terms, I'm not an expert in server things.

    As far as I know SB does not have a Linux version, so your best bet would be to try running it using Wine (Emulator that allows to run Windows applications on Linux), though this is not guaranteed to work, as SB works with network data, and TCP stack is very different in Windows and Linux. You would also need the graphical interface installed on the VPS (e.g. VNC server and X Server with a desktop environment such as KDE or GNOME). This does not have anything to do with Plesk being on the VPS or not. Installation of the things I mentioned above does not depend on it. But as I said - there's no guarantee it will work, so you can try and if it does, please let us know.
