Ubuntu LAMP Server With Torrentflux In VMware - Page 3
Step 7: Installing TorrentfluxAll right, we downloaded Torrentflux, now on to installing it. Set mysql root password:
mysqladmin -u root -p password <YourNewPassword>when asked for a password: just press <Enter>
it's the current mysql root password which isn't assigned yet.
tar zxvf torrentflux_2.1.tar.gz
Set up the config.php:
vi config.phpNow edit the settings as below:
Consult a vi manual to find out how vi works.
After saving your updated config.php file copy the files to your web server root directory:
sudo mkdir /var/www/tf
Step 8: Test!If everything went OK it's time to try if it's working and to set up the last bits in Torrentflux. To find out what the ip address is of your new server:
ip addressLook for the eth0 network card:
in my case the ip address is: 172.16.50.83
On your host: open your webbrowser and go to:
Login with: root and mysql password: <YourNewPassword>
As a final step: change the path to: /home/shared/torrent and press 'Update settings'

sudo shutdown -h nowIf you don't want to shutdown but simply log-off:
