Description

  • TorrentFlux/b4rt is a PHP based Torrent client that runs on a web server.
  • Manage all of your Torrent downloads through a convenient web interface from anywhere.

Installation

yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-tf-b4rt

No need to reboot.

Open YOURSERVER/torrent in a web browser

First login with a new username/password, this user is the superadmin, then review and change settings.

Change Document Root Path: as below, all other settings are optional, ignore the warnings

/opt/b4rt/html/

Possibly required, needs the dag repo to be configured

yum install perl-XML-Simple perl-XML-DOM --enablerepo=dag

Uninstallation

To remove this package issue the following command on the SME Server shell:

rpm -e tf-b4rt smeserver-tf-b4rt

To remove mysql database and user, both are b4rt, see MySQL#Remove a database and MySQL#Remove a user. There is no need to reboot.

Usage

Torrents are downloaded to /opt/b4rt/html/downloads, for users to access these:

1. The user can download the file to their PC using the web interface

2. Admin can create a symbolic link to an existing ibay

cd /home/e-smith/files/ibays/ibay1/files
ln -s /opt/b4rt/html/downloads/

3. Admin can create a new samba share, and map a new drive with netlogon

nano -w /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/smb.conf/50torrent

[torrent]                                                                       
comment = torrent Files                                                         
path = /opt/b4rt/html/downloads/                                               
browseable = yes                                                               
read only = no                                                                 
writable = yes                                                                 
printable = no                                                                 
inherit permissions = yes                                                       
create mode = 0660
nano -w /home/e-smith/files/samba/netlogon/netlogon.bat

<snip>
net use t: \\servername\torrent                                                       
signal-event ibay-modify

Additional information

The first user to login becomes a super admin

The manual is available at /torrent/manual.txt

You can fine tune access to torrentflux with DB settings. For more details see Web Application RPM#New DB settings.

Problems

  • wget needs php-cli, this is just too much work for a gui wget
  • searching often fails, google for your .torrent url, then copy and paste the URL into the Torrent Field.

Bugs

Please raise bugs under the SME-Contribs section in bugzilla and select the smeserver-torrentflux component or use this link .
