I have a shell account on a remote linux computer and I want the contents of my home machine's Dropbox folder also on the remote computer. How can I do this?

Assuming you're allowed to install applications, you'll want to do a headless install. Follow the steps at the bottom of the Linux Install page.

I'm getting errors when I try to run the script:

.../.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-69.4.102/dropbox: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /meta/b/borgauf/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-69.4.102/dropbox)

and

.../.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-69.4.102/dropbox: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by /meta/b/borgauf/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-69.4.102/dropbox)

Please advise.

I got errors. Something about /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' and /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17'. BTW, I tried before to post a reply and it got marked as spam?!

That's a program (and its respective version) that is required by Dropbox. You'll need to make sure it's installed on your system for Dropbox to function properly. Do a Google search and you'll find more information.

Yes, it was marked as spam by the automated system, likely because of the full paths you included in the post.

There's no way for me to install system-level C libraries on the commercial server where I have the shell account. Any alternatives?

Need more support?
