rutorrent is a front end to Package:Rtorrent and is designed to look like utorrent =D

# emerge www-apps/rutorrent


Prerequisites

  • Install your web server Package:Nginx, and get Package:PHP with the fpm use flag running first. nginx needs to be built with nginx_modules_http_scgi
  • you must turn on scgi_pass in the rtorrent config.
  • you must be running rtorrent, or rtorrentd.

Configuration

nginx config

/etc/nginx/sites-available/localhost - nginx configuration
server {
	listen 127.0.0.1:80;
	server_name localhost;
	access_log /var/log/nginx/localhost.access_log main;
	error_log /var/log/nginx/localhost.error_log info;
	root /var/www/localhost/htdocs;
	index index.php index.cgi index.htm index.html;
	autoindex on;

        location ~ \.php$ {
                fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
		include fastcgi.conf;
                #fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
        }

           location /rutorrent {
               include scgi_params;
               scgi_pass localhost:5000;
           }
}

Restart nginx:

# /etc/init.d/nginx restart


Point your browser to

http://127.0.0.1/rutorrent

or

http://localhost/rutorrent

Troubleshooting

Errors

If you are able to open the rutorrent web interface but receive errors such as Bad response from server: (502 [error,getplugins]) then edit and change/uncomment the following:

/etc/php/fpm-php5.5/php-fpm.conf
listen.owner = www-data
listen.group = www-data
listen.mode = 0666

The just restart php-fpm:

# /etc/init.d/php-fpm restart


Clock shows the incorrect time

If rutorrent's clock displays the incorrect time/timezone then it can be changed.

/etc/php/fpm-php5.5/php.ini
date.timezone = "Europe/Athens"

A full list of supported timezones can be found at http://php.net/manual/en/timezones.php

502

502 Bad Gateway is caused by nginx being started and php-fpm not being started.
