Help with auth file

Postby Andaaa » Sun Sep 09, 2018 3:31 pm


so I installed deluge and deluge-web.
The webGUI works fine. The only problem is that when I want to connecto to the deluge-console or move files to a mount.
I there get failed to connect: username does not exist.
I followed your guides. So my current config file looks like this:

Code: Select all


but it should look like this

Code: Select all



So where do I get the localclient number?
Is kinda a noob question.

I believe the auth file only applies to the thinclient setup. To set up the WebUI name and password open the config preferences and go down to the WebUI plugin and enable it and then go to the preferences section for the WebUI that will be created when you enable the plugin.

Addendum: The deluge-console command needs should be launched with the user running the daemon to void this error message.

So if XXX is the user running the daemon, launch it by:
sudo -u XXX deluge-console
