[Ubuntu] Help needed with auto start and connect at server reboot

Postby sformisano » Sat Sep 16, 2017 7:12 pm

Hello there,

new deluge user here - I've read many reviews and I decided to give it a try over transmission. I have to say, I was not disappointed!
Installation and setup are quite smooth and straightforward, configuration options are straightforward, quite happy with the move.

There's only one thing I haven't quite figured out about how it actually works:

I am using the web ui to manage torrents (I have an ubuntu server box), but every time the server reboots, I find myself having to manually start the daemon and connect it to the UI.

Here's what I don't get:

1) If I don't start the daemon through the UI when the server is rebooted, does that mean that the files aren't being downloaded? I do see the deluged daemon and the web ui services running but I haven't figured out how to answer to this one definitively

2) If (1) is true, do I have a way of automatically starting the daemon and connecting it to the web-ui? What I want to accomplish is a full auto start at server reboot time, so that if the server does need to reboot for any reasons files will resume downloading on their own.

I did try googling before asking here, and I have found an option to update through the web.conf file, the "default_daemon" option, which I set to "" with no results. Deluge seems to actually ignore the web.conf file entirely, as I have also tried changing the port without having results (as per instructions I found online I stopped the daemon, changed the conf and restarted it).

Thanks to anyone who will help with this.

Hi sformisano,

Under Ubuntu you can start Deluge as an app. Minimized it will run for the time it's running. To start the dameon Deluged & Deluge-web (server and web interface) you need to setup the services as described http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/Service/systemd
