This section covers the installation and configuration of the program required to run a Tor relay for various operating systems.
These steps are intended for the latest stable version of the given OS, on Ubuntu for the latest LTS release.
Note: For some operating systems, there are alpha version packages available (tor versions with new features not deemed to be stable yet).
These are only recommended for people eager to test and report bugs in bleeding edge releases/features.
If you are looking to run a relay with minimal effort we recommend you stick to stable releases.
The installation commands are shown in code blocks and must be executed with root privileges.
Click below in which type of relay do you want to host and don't forget to read Relay post-install and good practices.
