How To Configure rtGui For rTorrent

/ Configure rtGui for rTorrent /

This tutorial explains how you can install a GUI (rtGUI) for rTorrent.

rtGui is available: http://code.google.com/p/rtgui/

 

Requirements

* rTorrent 0.8.0 / libtorrent 0.12.0 complied with XML-RPC library support - see http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/
* XML-RPC library - see http://xmlrpc-c.sourceforge.net/
* Apache webserver configured with XML-RPC - see http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/wiki/RTorrentXMLRPCGuide
* PHP 5 with XML-RPC module - see http://www.php.net/
* A web browser - see http://www.mozilla.com/

 

Installation

------ I.------

1. Download and Install rTorrent and libtorrent

http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/wiki/Install

./configure
make
make install (as superuser)

 

2. Download XML-RPC and Install

http://xmlrpc-c.sourceforge.net/downloading.php

tar xvzf xmlrpc-XXXXXXXXX.tgz
./configure

IF YOU GET ERROR WITH ./configure, TRY THIS:

./configure --disable-cplusplus       
make
make install (as superuser)

 

3. Download and Install Apache and PHP with modules

http://www.php.net/
http://www.apache.org/

 

----- II. ------

1. Using XMLRPC with rtorrent

What you need:

* http://python.ca/scgi/ for Apache
* http://xmlrpc-c.sourceforge.net/ 1.00 or later, 1.07 or later for 64bit integer support.
* rtorrent 0.7.5 or later.

Configure rtorrent with the --with-xmlrpc-c flag and add the following to httpd.conf OR apache2.conf:

SCGIMount /RPC2 127.0.0.1:5000
rtorrent.rc: scgi_port = localhost:5000

 

2. Install rtGUI

* Change to your webserver root directory, eg:

cd /var/www/htdocs

* Extract the files from the archive you downloaded:

tar xvzf rtgui-0.1.tgz

* Modify config.php, if required:

vi rtgui/config.php

* Point your web browser to the directory, eg: http://localhost/rtgui

----------

 

If you want to use another gui for rTorrent, you have to chapter 1, and install your choice.

* nTorrent
* wTorrent
* n2hell
* rTWi
* rtorstat
