How to create a seedbox with the torrents InstantApp

This page shows you how to use the torrents InstantApp to create a seedbox with a web interface to manage your torrents.

Requirements

The torrents InstantApp provides:

  • Deluge, a web interface to add, list, remove and download your torrents
  • h5ai, a web file browser to browse and download your files
  • vsftp, a ftp server to manage and download your files
  • an auto installer, to configure your image after its creation

Step 1 - Create the server

Before starting, click the “Create a Server” button in the control panel.

Control Panel

You will land on the server-creation page where you can choose the Torrents image in the InstantApps tab for your Cloud Instance:

Control Panel

Choose the server type and click on the Create a Server button. This action starts your server.

Step 2 - Run the auto installer

Go to the detail page of your server to get its public IP.

Get server's public IP address

Open your browser, and go to http://YOUR_PUBLIC_IP (for example: http://212.47.0.0) to run the auto installer.

Configure torrents account

Enter a username and a password, then submit the form to create your account. Choose your credentials carefully: that’s not really easy to recover or change them later.

Step 3 - Manage your torrents

Yeyyyyyyyyyyyyy! Everything is setup :-) Easy, right?

To enter to the web application, enter the credentials your created just before.

Basic authentication

You land on Deluge, which is empty for now.

Deluge Interface

Click on the “add” button on the top of the page to add a torrent file.

You can either upload a torrent file or give a magnet link to your torrent.

Add a torrent

Wait a few minutes (really, it’s crazy fast!) until your torrent is downloaded. Then, to download it to your computer: s Download a torrent

  • Go to the file browser of your instance: http://YOUR_PUBLIC_IP/downloads (for example: http://212.47.0.0/downloads)
  • Choose the file you want to download
  • left-click on the file to start the download automatically

Get downloaded file

You can also download your files with a FTP client, for example Filezilla and the credentials used for your web authentication.
