sounds like you need a new seedbox company.


Do they give you root access? if so install the latest version from svn.

Do you know a keyboard shortcut or something which will display the version number because the "About..." Button doesn't show the version number.

Check the plugin tab. The version numbers should be the same as ruTorrent's version number.

I have SSH, SFTP, SCP, FTP access, but it doesn't mention anything about root access.

I have looked at the plugins tab and they are mostly version 3.10 with a few earlier versions (The create plugin is 3.10). Looks like they need an update.

I might ask the tech support to install the current version. I think it will cost me a few Euro but if it fixes the problem it will be worth it.

Thanks for your help wonslung and brock.  :)

it's pretty simple to install, brock even made a script for people who aren't as linux inclined

If you find you need help with a specific install issue please let us know.

I don't know which version of ruTorrent my seedbox is using.
The firefox tab header doesn't display the version number, it just has the name of the seedbox company.

Try to open URL http://your_rutorrent_address/js/webui.js save resulting file and check its line number 9. Non-ascient versions of ruTorrent have at this line something like

version: "3.1"

The create plugin is 3.10

This version really have such error, it was fixed in 3.2.

I got a question.

All the torrents I create with rutorrent end up being corrupted. No error message is given during creation, but the .torrent won't add to any torrent client.

I can't see any question in your post. Also i can't see any information - software version, plugin configuration, bad .torrent example etc.

Apologies.

I installed rtorrent and rutorrent with this script:

http://forums.rutorrent.org/index.php?topic=608.0

That works fine on 3 ubuntu servers, but the torrent created is always corrupt. When checking the torrent files, it reports file sizes of the files that are nowhere near the real size (250MB instead of 20GB).

2) $useExternal = false;

On 32-bit systems PHP can't work with files > 2G. Use external utility.

Re: How to use rutorrent: Creating a new torrent (create plugin)

I got ruTorrent installed on my Synology NAS station (model DS1511+) the other day, but I am having trouble saving the .torrent file for the torrents I create within the web interface. Basically, I click on the "Create torrent..." button (the yellow star) and then I select the source, add the tracker info and then click on create. The torrent is correctly created and if I had checked the "Start seeding" checkbox the torrent correctly begins seeding. My issue is when I click on the "Save" button. A new tab opens up in my browser (Firefox 4) and a dialog box comes up with the title "Secure Connection Failed" (see attached image). When I click on the "Cancel" button for this dialog, a popup appears in Firefox with the message "Error. Server did not respond." I tried this whole process on another computer and just got the Firefox popup, but not the dialog box about the "Secure Connection Failed".

Can anyone please help?

make sure you have the latest version of rutorrent.

Also, i've noticed a lot of people using one of those nas units having issues.



Which webserver are you using? which version of php?

Did you try using one of the helper programs for create?  I like buildtorrent or mktorrent best.

If you continue to have problems please create your own thread, this is more of a "how to use this plugin" thread.
