Hi stogie bear,
Under Linux I published the solution I use many times per year now here https://forum.deluge-torrent.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=54491&p=226225&hilit=sed+i+tracker#p226225
It's mainly a stop of all Deluges's services and file search&replace operation on the file torrents.state located in your profile.
You seems to be under Windows, I propose below generic info/how_to. Info:
The config file are in your user profile, a user profile is accessible with variable.
File to edit: torrents.state
Location of the file: %APPDATA%\deluge\state\
Copy this location in Windows explorer to confirm you see the file, check the date. If this is the right file the date should be recent.Change proposal
I don't have a Deluge under Windows right now so cannot properly test tracker swap. I'll rely on Notepad++ for this part for this reason
Mainly the script only create a backup copy prior you change it, just in case...P
- stop all Deluge services, confirm with the task manager
- open a Powershell prompt and past blow line to create a backup of your deluge folder located in %APPDATA%
Code: Select all
#Create Deluge profile backup
$SOURCE = "$env:appdata\deluge"
$BACKUP = "$env:appdata\deluge.backup"
New-Item -ItemType "directory" -Path $BACKUP -force | out-null
Copy-Item -R -Path $SOURCE -Destination $BACKUP -force
- open Notepad++ and edit the file %APPDATA%\deluge\state\torrents.state by replacing the URL
- start Deluge and check
If you have anything wrong stop Deluge again and recover the files from the backup.
