ruTorrent is a web interface to rTorrent (a console based BitTorrent client). It uses rTorrent's built-in XML-RPC server to communicate with it.

It is lightweight, highly extensible, and is designed to look similar to uTorrent.

Installation

Install rutorrentAUR from the AUR. If you want to use the development version install rutorrent-gitAUR.

Web Server Configuration

Apache

Install and configure Apache with PHP according to the LAMP page.

  • Edit the open_basedir value in /etc/php/php.ini to include:
/etc/webapps/rutorrent/conf/:/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/php/:/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/

Install mod_scgiAUR from the AUR.

  • Load the SCGI module in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
LoadModule scgi_module modules/mod_scgi.so
  • Enable SCGI on the port you chose for rTorrent by adding this to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
SCGIMount /RPC2 127.0.0.1:5000
  • Lastly, add the ruTorrent folder to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf with something similar to this anywhere after the inital </Directory>:
<IfModule alias_module>
  Alias /rutorrent /usr/share/webapps/rutorrent
  <Directory "/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent">
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
  </Directory>
</IfModule>

For Apache 2.4 the access control would be:

<IfModule alias_module>
  Alias /rutorrent /usr/share/webapps/rutorrent
  <Directory "/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent">
    Require all granted
  </Directory>
</IfModule>
Note: You should enable authentication through Apache if your site is public.

Nginx

  • Create a link from your web root to rutorrent
ln -s /usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/ /usr/share/nginx/html/rutorrent
  • Edit the open_basedir value in /etc/php/php.ini to include:
/etc/webapps/rutorrent/conf/:/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/php/:/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/
  • Add following location to your nginx configuration:
           location /RPC2 {
               include scgi_params;
               scgi_pass localhost:5000;
           }
  • Restart nginx:
# systemctl restart nginx
