Full Description


Popular rtorrent client with a webui for ease of use Rutorrent, integrated with autodl-irssi

This container is based on the rutorrent docker container from the fantastic folks over at


docker create --name=rutorrent-autodl \
-v <path to data>:/config \
-v <path to downloads>:/downloads \
-e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid> -e TZ=<timezone> \
-p 80:80 -p 9527:9527/udp -p 45566-45576:45566-45576 \


  • -p 80 - the port(s)
  • -p 45566-45576 - the port(s)
  • -p 9527/udp - the port(s)
  • -v /config - where rutorrent should store it's config files
  • -v /downloads - path to your downloads folder
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation
  • -e TZ for timezone information, eg Europe/London

User / Group Identifiers

Sometimes when using data volumes (-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container. We avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID. Ensure the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.

In this instance PUID=1001 and PGID=1001. To find yours use id user as below:

  $ id <dockeruser>
    uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)

Setting up the application

Webui can be found at <your-ip>:80 , configuration files are in /config/rtorrent.

** Important note for unraid users or those running a webserver on port 80, change port 80 assignment **
