Deluge no longer uploads or downloads

Postby elp3dr0 » Tue Oct 13, 2020 2:03 pm

Hi,

I'm a newcomer to torrents and have installed deluge on a headless machine (ubuntu container). deluged is running as a service, and I can access the web ui from another machine on the internal network.

My installation did work initially - I can see that it has downloaded some files in the downloads directory. I can still add torrents to deluge.

But it no longer downloads or seeds anything.

Please could you help me debug what's going on.

I have been hitting google quite hard but still am at a loss. One thing I don't have is the "Connection error" warning (see screenshot).

OK - I've found a clue. It's something to do with the download destination directory. I had changed my 'download to' directory in the web GUI preferences.

If I change it back to '/var/lib/deluge/Downloads' and reimport the torrent, then it starts to download!

For the life of me I can't work out why it won't download to another location.

OK. This looks like it's a configuration problem within the OS, rather than deluge. I'll investigate...
