noob question can't run deluge-web [Debian]

Postby huge » Mon Dec 04, 2017 2:38 am

Sorry if this is answered elsewhere, and for my overall level of ignorance...

I've installed deluged & deluge-web on my PogoPlug V4 running Debian. I've edited the auth file to have entries for root & a less privileged user. I've probably done some other configuration from various guides - I've been struggling with this for a while.

I can start deluged as a service:

Code: Select all

root@PogoV4:~# service deluged start
[ ok ] Starting Deluge BitTorrent Daemon: deluged.
root@PogoV4:~# service deluged status
[ ok ] deluged is running.

But if I try to start deluge-web as a service:

Code: Select all

root@PogoV4:~# service deluge-web start
deluge-web: unrecognized service

Or just running deluge-web:

Code: Select all

root@PogoV4:~# deluge-web
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/deluge-web", line 11, in <module>
    load_entry_point('deluge==1.3.13', 'console_scripts', 'deluge-web')()

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/twisted/internet/", line 983, in startListening
    raise CannotListenError(self.interface, self.port, le)
twisted.internet.error.CannotListenError: Couldn't listen on any:8112: [Errno 98] Address already in use.

Any help greatly appreciated. (And let me know if I should be posting this somewhere else)

The port 8112 is used by another deluge-web instance or any other application using the same port.

check with the below command as root (or with sudo):

Code: Select all

netstat -plant|grep :8112
