  • Arakasi, Is there any way to disable rtorrent on demand? I use your script on all of my linux machines, as I like how it sets up vsftpd and nginx automatically. I was wondering if there was some way to stop rtorrent? I don't necessarily want this service running all the time. I'd like to be able to start/stop it when I want to use it. I have tried rt stop, and it definitely does stop rtorrent, but it seems to automatically start back up after some time. Is there any way to stop this behavior until I deem it necessary? Thanks for the script by the way. Love it! Been using it for at least a year!

Restarting server or rtorrent does not help. I have ran your script again so it will reinstall rtorrent and that helped but today I got same error. Can you please tell me what may cause that? Thanks in advance
      It is always strange when something is working and then stops suddenly. Something has changed, to generate the error. Are you overloading rutorrent, how many torrents are you seeding, or are you running out of diskspace.

      Yes there is. Logged in as the rtorrent user, edit crontab, to access it use the command:
      Code:
      crontab -e
      There should be 2 lines assuming you are not using it for anything else, one starts rtorrent and irssi, on boot, and the second line starts rtorrent and irssi every 10 minutes, if they are not already running.

      Comment out or delete that 2nd line, save and exit.

        working perfect rutorrent
        But When i try to login ssh on my server
        give me password error . I am not change my server password
        Also i ftp same password error .
        Thanks for help in advance

        Are you trying to connect with root. You need to connect with the new user that rtorrent is running under, and if you created the user with the script, then the password that you entered at that time will be the password you need.

          Now it happened again with 200 torrents and around 200GB still free on HDD. Not sure if I was overloading rutorrent.

          edit: looks like "sudo apt-get install php7.0-mbstring" fixed this error

            I seem to remember this may have come up before. I will update script to install this module on systems with php7.

              Nice. Thank you. I didn't think to look for a cron job. Anyways, solved my issue. Thanks again!

                • Having Trouble Following Your Guide

                  Hi, I'm trying to install your setup script. I've bought a new dedicated server from SoYouStart here and this is the first time I've used it. I've connected via SSH and I ran this command:
                  Code:
                  wget --no-check-certificate https://raw.githubusercontent.com/arakasi72/rtinst/master/rtsetupsudo bash rtsetup
                  It says "Rtsetup saved". I then entered this:

                  Code:
                  sudo rtinst
                  But it says "-bash: sudo: command not found"

                    If you are logged in as root, you do not need the sudo, so try running, just as 'rtinst'

                    • I'm logged in as Root. In Step 1 after I enter "rtinst" do I enter "root" as my username?

                        No you will use a standard user. You can use an existing user, if you have one set up already, or you can use a new user, and the script will create the user account for you.

                        The script will add the user to the sudoers list, so you can use sudo with that user.

                                You will need to provide more information as to what is going wrong.
