Configure Deluge deamon and Deluge-web

Configure Deluge deamon and Deluge-web

Deluged Basic Configuration:

First you will find default configs file here: ~\.config\deluge.

  1. You can change the config folder by adding an argument while launching deluged -c ~/.config/deluged.conf
  2. You can also change the daemon port by launching deluged with the argument: deluged -p 123445
  3. If you follow the deluge installation guide you can change the daemon arguments by editing this file and changing the line
    DAEMON_ARGS="-d"
    by: DAEMON_ARGS="-d -c /home/user01/.config/deluged.conf -p 123445 -l /home/user01/.config/deluge-log.log -L info"
    /etc/init.d/deluged:

  4. For remote connection it is better to create custom username/password for the daemon connection:
    cp ~/.config/deluge/auth ~/.config/deluge/auth.bk
    echo "username:password:10" >> ~/.config/deluge/auth
    Check here for Authentication levels http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/Authentication
  5. The rest of the config can be mainly configure inside the client interface web or not.
