Where are the config files for deluged running as a service?

Postby CudB » Sun Apr 23, 2017 10:44 am

I have no problem finding the config file when running deluged as a regular user, but am having some trouble doing so when running it as a service as http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/Service/systemd explains.

http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/ThinClient says the following, but I don't quite understand.
Note: The config location is either the default location with reference to the user that deluged is running as. Alternatively if using a service it will be specified in the service config files with -c <path> option.


edit: I've also checked /var/lib/deluge/, but the directory is empty.

Did you specify a path when setting up the service? You just add "-c /YourPath/DelugeData" to the start command and that's where the config folder will go. This is the way I have it configured to run multiple instances of Deluge.

Is there a default location? I tried your suggestion and it created completely new files. The issue is that I set the service up over a year ago, so there are a lot of torrents, settings, etc. that I would like preserved.

edit: Nevermind, I forgot that the config was hidden in /var/lib/deluge/.config so I missed it.

If you followed the guide http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/Service/systemd for the user creation adn the deluged.service setup no specific path was defined and the home drive of the user "deluge" is used.
You cannot access the home drive of another user if you're not root, so you have to use "sudo" to display the files

What's the output of :

Code: Select all

sudo ls -l /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge


If nothing is displayed:

Code: Select all

sudo find / -iname core.conf

shoud return all deluged config file on drives


EDIT: missed your own edit (last line) :)
