(I have since determined that this tool sucks. Use SABnzbd+/rtorrent/rtgui instead.)

Installing Torrentflux-b4rt on Ubuntu 9.04

It does torrents and nzbs and more.

Groundwork

Set up Ubuntu with a Apache and PHP5.

Pre-requisites

Install pre-requisites:

$ sudo apt-get install php5-sqlite php5-cli uudeview bittornado

One minor tool that it wants, cksfv, is missing in the 9.04 repository, but we can pull a working one from a different repository. Go here and grab the .deb for your architecture. Install it:

$ sudo dpkg --install cksfv_1.3.14-1_amd64.deb

If that doesn't work, either download the source and build it, or just ignore it…it's just an SFV checker.

Install it

Get the tarball from here.

Extract tarball:

$ tar xjf torrentflux-b4rt_1.0-beta2.tar.bz2

Copy the "html" directory to the web root and chown it to the apache user:

$ sudo cp -r torrentflux-b4rt_1.0-beta2/html /var/www/torrentflux
$ sudo chown -R www-data /var/www/torrentflux

Go to http://yourserver/torrentflux and go through setup. You can skip having to mess with database crap by choosing sqlite and sticking the file in inc/config (e.g. /var/www/torrentflux/inc/config/database.sqlite). When it asks about paths, note that most things listed as being in /usr/local/bin are really in /usr/bin.

When you click through to the login screen, the credentials you enter will become the super-user account!

Configure Torrentflux-b4rt as desired and you're done.
