Rutorrent is a popular rtorrent client with a webui for ease of use.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/rutorrent should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

arm64v8-latest

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=rutorrent \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-p 80:80 \
-p 5000:5000 \
-p 51413:51413 \
-p 6881:6881/udp \
-v </path/to/rutorrent/config>:/config \
-v </path/to/rutorrent/downloads>:/downloads \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/rutorrent

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

80

5000

scgi port

51413

Bit-torrent port

Bit-torrent port

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

where ruTorrent should store it's config files

/downloads

path to your downloads folder

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

Webui can be found at <your-ip>:80 , configuration files for rtorrent are in /config/rtorrent, php in config/php and for the webui in /config/rutorrent/settings.

Settings, changed by the user through the "Settings" panel in ruTorrent, are valid until rtorrent restart. After which all settings will be set according to the rtorrent config file (/config/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc),this is a limitation of the actual apps themselves.

Important note for unraid users or those running services such as a webserver on port 80, change port 80 assignment

** It should also be noted that this container when run will create subfolders ,completed, incoming and watched in the /downloads volume.**

The Port Assignments and configuration folder structure has been changed from the previous ubuntu based versions of this container and we recommend a clean install

Umask can be set in the /config/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc file by changing value in system.umask.set

If you are seeing this error Caught internal_error: 'DhtRouter::get_tracker did not actually insert tracker.'. , a possible fix is to disable dht in /config/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc by changing the following values.

dht = disable
protocol.pex.set = 0

If after updating you see an error about connecting to rtorrent in the webui, remove or comment out these lines in /config/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc ,whatever value is set, yes or no. Just setting them to no will still cause the error..

use_udp_trackers = yes
peer_exchange = yes
