wTorrent is a web interface to rTorrent, a high performance console based BitTorrent client. It uses rTorrent's build-in XMLRPC server to communicate with it.

wTorrent is programmed in PHP using Smarty templates and XMLRPC for PHP library. wTorrent also uses javascript for rendering the page with AJAX, Scriptaculous and ShadedBorders.

wTorrent with Apache

See also Apache.

Installation

Install wtorrent-svnAUR and its the dependencies: rtorrent, apache, php, php-apache, php-sqlite, php-curl, mod_scgiAUR.

mod_scgi

After you install the packages you need to install the mod_scgi module for Apache:

$ wget http://quixote.python.ca/releases/scgi-1.13.tar.gz 

or:

$ wget http://python.ca/scgi/releases/scgi-1.13.tar.gz

Then:

$ tar xf scgi-1.13.tar.gz
$ cd scgi-1.13/apache2
$ sudo apxs -i -c mod_scgi.c

Configuration

Adding mod_scgi to httpd.conf

Edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.

Locate the LoadModule lines and add:

LoadModule scgi_module modules/mod_scgi.so

Add to the end of the file:

SCGIMount /RPC2 127.0.0.1:5000

Save the file and quit.

Enabling SQLite in php.ini

Edit /etc/php/php.ini.

Locate and uncomment the following:

extension=pdo.so
extension=pdo_sqlite.so
extension=curl.so
extension=xmlrpc.so
extension=sqlite.so
extension=sqlite3.so

PHP

PHP is practically available out of the box now.

  • Add these lines in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
Note: Place them at the end of "LoadModule" list or bottom of the file.
LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp5.so
Include conf/extra/php5_module.conf
  • Restart the Apache service to make changes take effect.

Final steps

Add the following to your ~/.rtorrent.rc:

scgi_port = localhost:5000

Get the latest version of wTorrent and install to your web directory:

# cd /srv/http
# git clone https://github.com/wtorrent/wtorrent.git
# mv wtorrent wtorrent.git
# mv wtorrent.git/wtorrent/ .
# rm -rf wtorrent.git/
# chmod -R 777 wtorrent
