This is a continuation of my previous article which goes through setting up and configuring the Deluge daemon. In my example I use Arch Linux. You may have another distribution and the commands to install the software will differ. Arch Linux separates the web interface out in a package. Your distribution may or may not. Most do however leave the Deluge web component out. See beneath for details for Debian, Ubuntu & Fedora.
In addition to the software we already installed there’s more to go to get the web interface working. These are not installed by default so to do so, simply run the following.
# pacman -S deluge
# apt-get install deluge-webui
# yum install deluge-web
Install dependencies for deluge-web.
# pacman -S python-mako
This will also install the following dependencies
Targets (3): python-markupsafe-0.9.2-1 python-beaker-1.5.4-1 python-mako-0.3.4-3
Start the Deluge web client.
# /etc/rc.d/deluge-web start
Connect to the web client using your browser.
http://server name or IP:8112
NB: You will not be able to do the initial configuration using Google Chrome. But you can use the interface in general with Google Chrome.
You can now monitor Deluge as you prefer using a web interface. If it’s set up properly you can access this from anywhere.
