A

When you run qBittorrent-nox, it assumes the following settings:

1. Web UI Port - Default is 8080. You can change it with a command option, for example: "--webui-port=8888"

2. Save Path - Default is ~/Downloads. All downloaded files and temporary files are stored there. But you can change it when you add a new Torrent on the Web UI.

3. Log Files - The log file is located in the ~/.local/share directory.

fyicenter$ ls -lt ./.local/share/data/qBittorrent/logs

-rw-------. 1 fyicenter fyicenter  2234 Jan 2 16:35 qbittorrent.log
-rw-------. 1 fyicenter fyicenter 66701 Jan 1 13:42 qbittorrent.log.bak1
-rw-------. 1 fyicenter fyicenter 66681 Jan 1 05:31 qbittorrent.log.bak

4. Lock File - A lock file is created in the /var/tmp/ directory. This ensures that there is only 1 qBittorrent-nox process running per user.

drwxrwxr-x. 2 fyicenter fyicenter   44 Jan 6 10:49 rss
