Initial Setup

Please make yourself aware of the Fair Usage Policy. Directly pointing any torrent client to seed from your cloud storage using Rclone will create extreme strain on your slot's disk and WILL cause a 24 hour ban on accessing your cloud storage repeatedly. It is your responsibility to ensure usage is within acceptable limits. Ignorance is not an excuse.

Deluge is a full-featured BitTorrent application written in Python 2. It has a variety of features, including but not limited to:

Client/server model DHT support Magnet link support Plug-in system UPnP support Full-stream encryption Proxy support

When the server daemon is running, users can connect to it via a console client, a GTK-based GUI, or a Web-based UI. A complete list of features can be viewed here.

Deluge is already configured and tuned out of the box. Once logged in for the first time, there will be a textbox asking you if you want to change the default password, which you set in UCP. Click No.

Then, the Connection Manager settings will appear. Just click the host in the box and click Connect. After that, you are now logged into Deluge's Web UI.

We recommend that your Deluge password consists of LETTERS and NUMBERS only. This is particularly useful when you're using deluge-console injection for autodl-irssi.

Default File Paths

Default Downloads Folder: ~/Downloads

Deluge's config folder: ~/.config/deluge

How to Reset a Forgotten Password for Deluge's Web UI

This section will show you how to reset your Deluge's Web UI password.

Should you need to change your Deluge's *daemon password*, you may need to reinstall your Deluge instance with your preferred password.

Open your Ultra Control Panel and click on the "Access Details" tab. You will find your SSH Access details on this page.

  • If you are unsure of your username & password, see the Eye Icon

Connect to your slot's SSH

Once connected, type the following command: app-deluge stop

Now on the empty line, type the following command and press Enter

sed -i.bak "/pwd_sha1/d" ~/.config/deluge/web.conf

Now on the next empty line, type the following command and press Enter

sed -i.bak "/pwd_salt/d" ~/.config/deluge/web.conf

Now start your deluge instance by running app-deluge start

Once started, enter deluge as your password.

Setting Up Deluge Thin Client

Deluge's Thin Client is a great way to manage your Deluge instance from your PC. It also gives you more customization to your Deluge instance, and some plug-ins, such as LabelPlus, do require that you need to have the thin client installed for you to access its settings.

This section shows you how to install, configure, and connect your Deluge client to your slot's instance.


  • Download and install Deluge from the links below
Deluge Client 1.3.15
    Windows -
    MacOS -
    Linux - Refer to your distribution

Setting up Deluge Client

  • Open up Deluge Client on your PC
    • Click Preferences -> Interface and Uncheck Classic Mode
    • Confirm to restart Deluge

  • Once Rebooted, a window named Connection Manager appears. Click Add.
  • Go back to your UCP, under Applications Tab, find remote client access under Deluge, and input the values accordingly.
  • Once that's done, click add and wait for the Green circle to pop up.
  • Once that's popped up, highlight your new details and click Connect.

Installing Deluge Plugins

This section will teach you how to install Deluge plug-ins. Deluge plug-ins extend the functionality of what Deluge provides, giving you more ways to automate processes or simplifying tasks. Take note that you need to check what plug-in you download. Specifically:

If the plug-in is written for Deluge v.1.3.15

It's written using python 2.7

Its extension is .egg

Also, take note if your plug-in can be accessed with the thin client or the web client.

Installing Plugins

Login to your Deluge's Client

Download the plug-in that you want.

Go to Preferences -> Plugin.

Click Install Plugin and navigate to your plugin_name.egg and click Open

  • This'll install the plug-in on your PC client and to the slot Client.

  • After it's installed, tick the label name and click OK. You may have to do that a few times to get it properly installed.

    Troubleshooting Information

Why does Deluge keep crashing?

This is a typical characteristic of Deluge. It usually happens when downloading, where the client will prioritize torrent traffic over the WebUI. Deluge is aggressive and caches the information into the RAM. In turn, the Deluge WebUI loses connection, and the Daemon would appear offline.

It will come back/stabilize some minutes after the download is completed, and no action needs to be taken at that time.

If it's not coming back, a misconfigured plug-in may be interfering with Deluge. The usual case with this is ltconfig with high-performance seed pre-set engaged. This pre-set most likely crashes Deluge. We recommend using our default tunings first, as it is tuned specifically for our slots.

Why aren't my torrents producing any upload? They're not seeding!

This usually causes the following:

After the first couple of hours, Linux distros and freeware content are generally overpopulated.

For that, you may have to grab the torrent as it is posted on the website. Tracker forums usually have methods to snatch them automatically via RSS or Autodl-irssi. Some tracker forums block the seeding of new torrents after a particular ratio within a day. You may have to refer to your tracker's rules for this.

You may have some plug-in that blocks your torrents from uploading.

Your torrents may have some errors. Check the torrent's status for this.

Why does the main IP of my slot and torrent clients appear different? Which IP should I report to trackers?

Our slot IPs are pooled to avoid clashing on trackers with a more extensive user database to help peers and seeders.

Our slot IPs are pooled to avoid clashing. If you need to submit IP's, then you should use the IP's that are binding to the torrent clients.. You can obtain them by logging into Deluge and go to Settings -> Network -> Interface. Copy the IP from that field.
