Debian 32 Bit:
Replace the first download url with http://download-new.utorrent.com/endpoint/utserver/os/linux-i386-debian-7-0/track/beta/
Installing the autostart scripts:
cd utorrent ./utstart install
Now, run the server if it’s a first install:
./utstart start &
, or reboot your VPS to start the daemon at boot.
You can launch the utorrent server GUI on the VPS at the following location:
The first time you run it, make sure that you create a password for admin, by visiting the preferences screen. The default username is admin, and password is blank.
Sometimes you might get the following error message:
./utserver: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Solution: Download and manually install the .deb package from http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/libssl0.9.8
For a 64 bit Debian: http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/amd64/libssl0.9.8/download
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_amd64.deb dpkg -i libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_amd64.deb
For 32 bit Debian:
wget http://droidzone.in/debian/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_i386.deb wget http://droidzone.in/debian/libssl0.9.8-dbg_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_i386.deb dpkg -i *deb
Now try starting utorrent again. It works.
