This tutorial is for Hardy Heron 8.04 Server and aims to get you up and running with a torrentflux-b4rt server in a very short time!
Start by installing Ubuntu with the LAMP option selected
If your behind a proxy and havn't already set up your export...Code:cd /var/www
Code:export http_proxy = [enter your proxy here]:[port]/So, so far we've gone and got the tar containing torrentflux-b4rt and stuck it in our default web root /var/www.Code:wget http://gunblade.fakap.net/doc/torrentflux-b4rt_1.0-beta2.tar.bz2
This unzips our archive.Code:tar xjvf torrentflux-b4rt_1.0-beta2.tar.bz2
personally I now rename the new folder from
torrentflux-b4rt_1.0-beta2to something a little nicer like torrentflux
but thats optional...Code:mv torrentflux-b4rt_1.0-beta2 torrentflux
now we need to install quite a few libraries for everything to work nicely...
let that churn away for a bit then run setup.php from a web browser of your choice from the torrentflux/html folder.Code:sudo apt-get install php5-cli php5-gd libxml-dom-perl libxml-simple-perl libthreads-shared-perl libdigest-sha1-perl libhtml-parser-perl zip unzip unrar transmission-cli phpmyadmin
When it gets the part where it asks what user name and password to use for the database, copy the username provided (or enter a new one) open a new tab and go to the phpmyadmin page (http://[your box ip]/phpmyadmin), log in using your root username and pwd and click on privileges. add a new user, give it sufficient privileges and click save.
I just gave it full access to everything. This isn't required and you can just keep flicking between the two tabs trying to connect until you've found the required permissions and it works...
when the setup is finished it'll give you a log in screen. the user and password you enter here is going to be your superadmin account! so don't forget it!
And thats it!
