    Re: How-to: Installing Torrent-Flux

    I'm at this step:

    (You'll need to enter the MySQL password you set previously.) Now go into the "sql" sub-directory in torrentflux (depends on where you untared torrentflux, of course):
    Code:

    $ cd ~/Desktop/torrentflux_2.1/sql
    I installed with synaptec. I can't find torrentflux_2.1/sql.

    Yeah, the how-to was written for a manual installation. With an automatic installation, the sql script is supposed to be run automatically. So, the database should be created.

    Having said that, I have found that the automatic install doesn't always do that step properly. You can obtain the "mysql_torrentflux.sql" script by downloading the torrentflux installation files from:
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=123961

    You can follow the steps in the how-to for untarring that file, and running the MySQL script.

    Hope that helps.

    By the way, you only need to run that sql script if the automatic installation didn't create the MySQL database for you. You can check if the MySQL database exists in two different ways.

    Method one:
    Check the directory "/var/lib/mysql/" and see if it contains "torrentflux" (and make sure it's not empty):
    Code:
    cd /var/lib/mysql/
    ls -laF
    cd torrentflux
    ls -laF

    Method two:
    Use MySQL itself:
    Code:
    mysql -uroot -p
    mysql> show databases;
    mysql> use torrentflux;
    mysql> show tables;
    mysql> quit;
    Make sure that it listed "torrentflux" among the databases, and that it contained the right tables:
    Code:
    +-----------------------+
    | Tables_in_torrentflux |
    +-----------------------+
    | tf_cookies            |
    | tf_links              |
    | tf_log                |
    | tf_messages           |
    | tf_rss                |
    | tf_settings           |
    | tf_users              |
    +-----------------------+

    Re: How-to: Installing Torrent-Flux

    Ok, thanks, I think it worked, but I also think I may be in over my head....

    I fail at step 4d.

    http://localhost/torrentflux/

    I get a 404 not found error.....

    What I did was uninstalled from synaptec and downloaded the tarball and followed the instructions from there.

    If you uninstalled using Synaptic, then you need go back through all the steps of the how-to. In particular, a 404 error probably means that you didn't copy the contents of the "html" directory form the downloaded tar-file into the directory "/var/www/torrentflux/" (step 4.a).

    Re: How-to: Installing Torrent-Flux

    Ok, I went back through all the instructions starting with 4a and I still get the 404 error. The only errors during the steps were errors saying that the database could not be created because it already exists....

    Confirm that the files got copied:
    Code:
    ls /var/www/torrentflux/ -laF
    It should lists a bunch of files (46 files and dirs, I think). You can post the output of that command to the thread.

    Okay, all the files are there, but the webserver doesn't have permission to read them. The bit that says "-rwxr-x---" needs to be updated:
    Code:
    cd /var/www/torrentflux/
    chmod +r * -R
    chmod 777 downloads
    The first chmod adds "read" capability to all the files, so the webserver can access them. The second "chmod" gives full permissions to the downloads directory, so that the webserver can create new files in that directory. Once done, if you do "ls -laF" again you should get files with "-rwxr--r--" listed instead, meaning that the webserver can read them.


    Note:
    An alternate way to accomplish this would be to make the webserver user, "www-data", own all the files:
    Code:
    cd /var/www/torrentflux/
    chown www-data:www-data * -R
