BitTorrent – Deluge WebUI Install Script

Deluge is a BitTorrent client written in python based on libtorrent. Deluge is my favorite  BitTorrent client because it’s got some great features like:

09/08/16 – Updated for Deluge 1.3.13 – Tested on  Debian 8/Ubuntu 16.04

  • It’s Fast!
  • Full Encryption Support
  • Cross-Platform Support
  • Thin Client Mode
  • Great Web-UI
  • Plugin System

Not only have I found Deluge to be faster than many of the other BitTorrent clients that I have tried but, it’s also simple to setup and reasonably lightweight in terms of resources. Packaged versions of Deluge can be a bit old and not up to snuff, so I’ve written a  simple bash script that will automatically install the latest version of Deluge from it’s source.  The entire process, on a freshly installed VPS, takes approximately 5 minutes.

Observium Client Setup Script

Observium is a neat PHP based system monitoring platform that I’ve been using lately, it’s fairly easy to install (Observium + Nginx/PHP-FPM install guide Coming Soon!) and provides a large variety of easy to read graphs of system information.

Observium is an autodiscovering SNMP based network monitoring platform written in PHP which includes support for a wide range of network hardware and operating systems including Cisco, Windows, Linux, HP, Dell, FreeBSD, Juniper, Brocade, Netscaler, NetApp and many more.

From the Official Observium Wiki

After the initial task of Observium host installation and configuration, you need install and configure SNMP daemon on all of your client servers, aka all the servers that you want to monitor.  This can be quite annoying if you’re monitoring more then a handful of servers, thus I have taken the time to write bash script for installation of the SNMP daemon on a client server.
