Flood is an alternative rTorrent web interface using Node.js.

A random port number between 10000 and 65535 is needed and will be used to access Flood once installation is complete. The port number 18569 has automatically been generated and will be used throughout this article, but can be changed if needed.


  1. Clone the Flood git repository on to your slot

     git clone https://github.com/jesec/flood.git
  2. Change to the Flood directory

     cd ~/flood
  3. Build and install Flood. This process may take some time to complete.

     npm install; npm run build
  4. Launch Flood in a background screen session on your random port 18569

     screen -dmS flood npm start -- --host --port 18569
  5. Access Flood at http://server.whatbox.ca:18569. Choose a username and password you will use to access Flood. For the socket path, enter /home/user/.config/rtorrent/socket
