I was wondering which is the best option for a server. I have tryied Deluged and rTorrent and I can say that Deluged is easy to setup and has a great web-based gui. I didn't play much with rTorrent but it looked more lightweight than Deluged. Some people recommended TorrentFlux but I never tryied that.

So what do you people suggest?


Main concerns are:


web-based GUI
lightness/speed
features(checking folder for torrents, running scripts etc.)


Server specs: Pentium 4 2.8Ghz, 1-2GB RAM, Debian 32bit, Apache

My experience has been for the most part with rtorrent and although I do not use it on a server I would imagine that it would be perfect for such a use. If you are keen to use a gui to supervise rtorrent there is always rutorrent (http://code.google.com/p/rutorrent/). But not running a server limits the value of any of my ideas here :(.

Throwing a bit (sic) of a curve ball - and I haven't run it in the manner you are looking at for quite a while but qbittorent might fit the bill - the webUI is pretty slick ;)

rtorrent is the best solution for servers, for the other mentioned apps you have to install tons of depencies.
