Tinyib and vichan are absurdly outdated. Lynxchan is about impossible to install. If you made an easy tutorial that allows one to install lynxchan, I will pay someone 300 dollars. I don't want someone to install it for me, I want instructions on how to install it on my own. I love lynxchan speed and ease of use. Please help.

Read the readme, it tell your how to install lynxchan.
If you need help after reading that, go to #lynxchan on rizon (IRC).

LynxChan has to be hosted on a VPS or dedicated hardware, so you can have root access to set it up the way it needs to be setup.
Read the contents of the first.sh and second.sh files. These scripts more or less automate everything. I've added comments that explain everything it's doing and give background for why. You can copy the unzipped contents of the zip archive into your home directory on the server and run them.
Included are a couple of media files particular to our test site. You can replace them with identically-named files for your own site, if you wish.
I made some modifications in second.sh that I haven't been able to test, but I'm feeling pretty confident.

All the read lines are there so you can see what the result of the last command was before moving on to the next one by hitting enter.
It's possible that the CentOS 7 Minimal you run this on will be configured somewhat differently than what I've used, which may cause certain commands to not do what we want. Seeing the output allows you to decide whether you can still continue by hitting enter or need to stop the script by hitting ctrl+c. If you take the second option, you can fix whatever misconfiguration or whatever happened, comment out commands up to where the problem happened, and restart where you left off. Make sure, however, that the script cds to the directory it needs to be in to run the commands the script now starts with.
