Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
Thanks Koper, your script worked great. I am having a little difficulty in trying to connect sickbeard and couchpotato with rtorrent. Because you use unix sockets, how can I connect with rtorrent? In couchpotato I put scgi://localhost:5000/ but it doesn't work.

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
Ok, sorry that I didn't answer earlier, to all of you who want to use it with sickbeard/couchpotato, because I used here scgi_local (local socket) you need to change in rtorrent.rc (defaulet /home/xbian/.rtorrent.rc)
this line:
scgi_local = /tmp/rtorrent.sock
to
scgi_port = 127.0.0.1:5000

and in:
/etc/nginx/sites-available/rutorrent
scgi_pass unix:/tmp/rtorrent.sock;
to
scgi_pass localhost:5000;

/var/www/rutorrent/conf/config.php
$scgi_port = 0;
$scgi_host = "unix:///tmp/rtorrent.sock";
to
$scgi_port = 5000;
$scgi_host = "127.0.0.1";

It'll now work.
It will solve your problem vokus also, but basicaly it means your rtorrent crashed and just reboot and your problem would be solved.

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
When I change it to those settings however, the web ui stops working and no longer starts up rtorrent.

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
You changed all of them? if yes try disableing rutorrent plugins httprcp i rpc. You need to change this 3 files .rtorrent.rc config.php in rutorrent and nginx rutorrent file. It should work I just tried it on fresh install and it works

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
Yep changed them all, I am however installing this on raspbian, so maybe there is a difference? I even disabled the plugin like you said, still doesnt work. I guess I will have to xbian to see.

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
Hmm, if it's not a problem I could check out your setup via ssh it should work perfectly on raspian, but for sure you should change user and folders in this to get it work (because here it's "installing" it as xbian user, and in xbian home folder)

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
Hi all,

Just wanted to say thanks for this awesome script! Got rtorrent and rutorrent up and running quickly and it makes a great xbian citizen w/ XBMC w/ the nice levels.

I also wanted to mange rtorrent remotely with a client such as Transdroid on my android, but it appears scgi wasn't configured to allow this. It also wasn't configured for authentication, and I didn't want to open nginx up to the entire world, so I enabled basic auth on it.

Here's what I did:

nano /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/rutorrent


Paste in following (edit port, auth realm, and auth file) and save.


server
{
listen 9999; ##Replace with port to listen on - preferably not same as rutorrent
server_name localhost;
location ^~ /scgi {
auth_basic "Restricted"; ##auth zone - whatever you want to use
auth_basic_user_file torpasswd; ##auth file - relative to /etc/nginx/.
include scgi_params;
scgi_pass unix:/tmp/rtorrent.sock;
}
}


Now you need an auth file at /etc/nginx/torpasswd (or whatever auth file name you specified)

Easiest way is to use this online tool here:

http://www.askapache.com/online-tools/htpasswd-generator/ -> Be sure to put in the realm used in "auth_basic" in nginx config above, and select md5 and Basic Auth.

nano /etc/nginx/torpasswd -> paste in digest algorithm above

sudo /etc/init.d/nginx restart

Enjoy!

In transdroid, you specify user name and password, and then for SCGI mount point you put "/scgi", and also specify the port number you mapped it to. NAT the port through your router and you've got access anywhere with Dynamic DNS!

RE: Guide: rTorrent + ruTorrent installation
Hi and thanks for what seems to be a great script!

I know I probably shouldn't post this here, and I don't mean to be disrespectful in any way. I just thought I'd mention that I tried to install this on latest Raspbmc, and it seems that it started ok, but gave me alot of errors at the end. Pasting errors here, if there is a simple fix to this I would really appreaciate your help. But like I said, I know this isn't the right Place to be asking for support in my case =)

After I posted this I continiued with a manual install of rtorrent on raspbmc, and the day after when I hit reboot through ssh the system never got back online, after plugging it in to a screen I saw that something had messed up the entire system... the initial boot sequence was full of weird symbols...

so, sorry, can't post any logs.

Anyone can help me?Huh
Made the modification but still no comunication with CouchPotato nor Sickbeard... Also a new message appeared in my rutorrent:

[08.07.2014 02:31:31] No connection to rTorrent. Check if it is really running. Check $scgi_port and $scgi_host settings in config.php and scgi_port in rTorrent configuration file

See below log from my couchpotato
