RPi Deluge Docker

What is Deluge?

Deluge is a torrent client. One of the best things about it is its highly client-server oriented, allowing you to remote control a deluge server from your desktop deluge app or using the web interface (deluge-web).

The Deluge website:

Using this container as part of a Raspberry Pi home server

What does this image do?

  • sets up deluged for remote access, default directories and gives a default username and password
  • runs deluged and deluge-web

Tested On

  • Raspberry Pi 2 running HypriotOS (should also work on the Raspberry Pi 1)

Getting Setup


Pull the repository and run: docker build -t jordancrawford/rpi-deluge .

Pulling from Docker Hub

An image is available at:

Run docker pull jordancrawford/rpi-deluge to grab this copy.


Use this command to run:
docker run -d -v /home/pi/deluge/config:/config -v /home/pi/deluge/data:/data -p 58846:58846 -p 8112:8112 --name=deluge jordancrawford/rpi-deluge

Understanding the options

  • -d: runs detached, so the Docker instance just runs in the background.

  • -v /home/pi/deluge/config:/config: sets up your host's /home/pi/deluge/config directory to map to the /config directory in the container. Docker will make this folder if it doesn't exist on your host system. This can be moved to anywhere on your host system, but the Docker image needs /config to exist! This is where you will go if you want to manually change any deluge configuration.

  • -v /home/pi/deluge/data:/data: similar to above, maps your host's /home/pi/deluge/data directory to map to the /data directory in the container. This is required and is where your files will be stored to by default.

  • -p 58846:58846: setups a port forwarding rule for the deluged port on 58846.

  • -p 8112:8112: setups a port forwarding rule for the deluge-web port on 8112.

The docker run documentation is very helpful,

You should:

  • Change the default username and password in your config directory's auth file.

  • Login to deluge-web and change the password (first login will prompt you to do this). The deluge-web password is independent from the deluged password.

Default Passwords

  • remote access from a Deluge client:

Username: deluge

Password: deluge

  • the deluge-web interface

Password: deluge


  • Potentially allow more configuration options on run, such as defining the default username and password to use.
