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

A random port number between 10000 and 32767 is needed and will be used to access Flood once installation is complete. The port number 25601 has automatically been generated and will be used throughout this article, but can be changed if needed.


  1. SSH into the server following the instructions found here /wiki/ssh

  2. Launch Flood in a background screen session on your random port 25601

     screen -dmS flood npx --yes @jesec/flood --host --port 25601
  3. Access Flood at http://server.whatbox.ca:25601. Choose a username and password you will use to access Flood. For the socket path, enter /home/user/.config/rtorrent/socket
