IP Space Migration Continues

All Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! DNS will be updated after the move.

New ARM Stages

New ARM Stages, built with a new toolchain, are now hitting mirrors. Existing ARM users should re-install using these stages (dated Aug 3, 2015 or later,) rather than upgrade using emerge.

  • Install your web server Package:Nginx, and get Package:PHP with the fpm use flag running first.
  • you must turn on scgi_pass within rtorrents.


first figure out what php you're using

#eselect php list fpm
[1]   php5.5 *
# eselect php list cgi
[1]   php5.5 *
# eselect php list apache2
[1]   php5.5 *
# eselect php list cli
[1]   php5.5 *

were going to configure for nginx.

optional security lock down stuff


possibly broken, untested

Edit the open_basedir in /etc/php/fpm-php5.5/php.ini

/etc/php/fpm-php5.5/php.ini - php basedir
open_basedir = /var/www/localhost/htdocs/rutorrent/conf:/var/www/localhost/htdocs/rutorrent/php:/var/www/localhost/htdocs/rutorrent/

nginx config

/etc/nginx/sites-available/localhost - nginx configuration
server {
	server_name localhost;

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

then start nginx

# /etc/init.d/nginx restart

tested without rtorrent running, and without editing the php.ini, web app runs fine.
