Smile Easy ruTorrent installer + Web server, FTP, Webmin (Ubuntu/Debian
Easy ruTorrent installer + Web server, FTP, Webmin (Ubuntu/Debian/Fedora/More)
All credit goes to Author brock from original post here for reference also check there for faq questions regarding his script

This is an easy installer for ruTorrent (multi-user support), rtorrent, plugins and other dependencies. It requires no Linux knowledge. The only requirement is that you can copy and paste three lines of code. In 5-10 mins, you should have a fully working ruTorrent.

To install it, use one of the three lines of code below, depending on which OS you are using. The installation script will ask you some questions and then install everything you selected.

Ubuntu and Ubuntu clones:


wget --no-check-certificate -O autodl-setup

sudo sh autodl-setup

Any other OS
Log in as root:

yum update

allow it to update all

su -

Then install it: to install wget on centos use "yum install wget"

wget --no-check-certificate -O autodl-setup

sh autodl-setup

If you already have another web server installed, you may need to disable it or uninstall it. If you don't, the web server this script installs (*) might not work.

What it will do:

Install a web server (*)
Install ruTorrent with multi-user support (http and https)
Install 1st party ruTorrent plugins
Install an encrypted FTP server (vsftpd)
Install rtorrent with xmlrpc-c support
Install the IRC auto downloader plugin (autodl-irssi)
Install Webmin
Install a startup script for rtorrent and Irssi

You can disable any of the above by answering no when you run the installer.

* Apache, nginx, or lighttpd.

I've tested the following OSes (clean installs):

Arch Linux 2010.05
ArchBang 2010.10
CentOS 4.8
CentOS 5.5
ClearOS 5.2
Debian 4.0r7
Debian 5.0.3
Debian 5.0.7
Debian 6.0.0
Fedora 13
Fedora 14
Fedora 15
Frugalware 1.3
Gentoo 1.12.14
Linux Mint 8
Linux Mint 9
Linux Mint 10
Mandriva Linux release 2008.0
Mandriva Linux release 2010.1
openSUSE 11.1
openSUSE 11.3
openSUSE 11.4
Pardus 2009.2
Pardus 2011
PCLinuxOS 2010
Peppermint OS
RHEL 5.5
RHEL 6.0
Sabayon 5
Scientific Linux 5.5
Scientific Linux 6.0
Ubuntu Server 6.06.2 LTS
Ubuntu Server 8.04.4 LTS
Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 LTS
Ubuntu Server 11.04
Ubuntu 10.10
Unity release 2010

If your OS isn't listed, but is derived from one of the above OSes, then the installer could still work. Eg., all Ubuntu and Debian derived OSes should work.


If you have SELinux enabled, it's possible Apache or vsftpd won't work.
To disable Selinux.
Edit /etc/selinux/config (e.g. $sudo vi /etc/selinux/config)

Find the line:


If you simply want to set selinux to permissive mode - which will still warn you when something would have been denied

change to



The script doesn't open any ports in your firewall. If your firewall is enabled, you may need to open a few ports.
if u cant access webgui use "iptables -F"

Ubuntu Server 6:

You need to enable the universe repository

RHEL/CentOS/Scientific 4 & 5:

You may need to add and enable a 3rd party repository, eg. EPEL, and another one for PHP 5.3, eg. remi (

geoip plugin:

Some OSes don't have the PHP geoip module (thus disabling the ruTorrent geoip plugin).

I wouldn't recommend using auto setups like this. In most cases the download links from the script itself could be broken. Its easier to just install everything step by step using simple terminal commands and make sure step by step that everything is properly done.
But if someone is lazy could use auto-installers and hope for the best
Need HELP!? I can install:

  1. Server/VPS (Debian,CentOS,Ubuntu,Fedora, FreeBSD) Optimization and ... + Modules

  3. Seedbox Windows/Linux (uTorrent,rTorrent,libTorrent,ruTorrent) + Modules
  4. TBDev Support
  5. Gazelle Support Install
