Full Description

This is a completely funcional rutorrent 3.7, rtorrent 0.9.4, libtorrent 0.13.4 and a lot of plugins for rutorrent, like autodl-irssi, filemanager, fileshare and other useful ones.

Based on ALinuxNinja compose, updated base image, changed rtorrent/libtorrent version and installed extra plugins:
Also installed and selected by default this awesome theme:

Tested and working on Synology devices, but should work on any x86_64 devices.

Map any local port to 80 for rutorrent access
Map any local port to 443 for SSL rutorrent access
Map any local port to 51412 for rtorrent

Default username "admin" with password "admin"

Important directories:
/home/rtorrent/Downloads (Default rtorrent Download directory)
/home/rtorrent/session (Default rtorrent Session directory)
/home/rtorrent/watch/ (Default rtorrent watch directory)
/backup/ (Directory for storing backups. Very useful to update container.)
You should map this to directories outside container.

You must edit /home/rtorrent/.rtorrent.rc to put your specific watch subfolder configuration.
I have added ICEcoder to the image to easier editing directly from the web. Access it on http://containerip:port/ICEcoder

I have added different scripts in /scripts directory: - Do backup of configuration in /backup/<formatted date> directory - Do restore of configuration from /backup/<formatted date> directory. The script lists directory /backup before restoring - Change admin password for web access to rutorrent - Regenerate SSL Certificates - Updates rtorrent/libtorrent to latest version - Updates rutorrent to latest version
