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.

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

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

$ 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.

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
