What are common issues when running qBittorrent-nox?

✍: FYIcenter.com


Here are some common issues you may encounter when running qBittorrent-nox:

1. Multiple instances of qBittorrent-nox for the same user - qBittorrent-nox allows only 1 instance for each user. So if you run the "qbittorrent-nox" command again, nothing will happen.

If want to run a second instance, you need to run it under a different user with a different port:

fyicenter$ sudo -u another-user qbittorrent-nox --webui-port=8888

2. Permission Issue on Save Path - If you specify a Save Path that you don't have "write" permission, qBittorrent will not download any content. And there is no error message.

3. Forget Web UI Password - There is no password recovery function. You can stop the process, remove the configuration files, and start "qbittorrent-nox" as new users. This resets the password back to "adminadmin".

fyicenter$ kill -9 {pid}

fyicenter$ rm -R ~/.config/qBittorrent 

fyicenter$ qbittorrent-nox

4. Web UI not Accessible - If you are using Web browser on a computer remote connected to the computer where qBittorrent-nox is running, your connection could be blocked by the firewall, or middle gateway computers.

First, if qBittorrent Web UI is running on port 8080, you need to open the firewall on the qBittorrent computer.

fyicenter$ sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=8080/tcp
fyicenter$ sudo firewall-cmd --runtime-to-permanent

Then, you need to check the gateway/router of the qBittorrent computer. It must be configured to forward incoming connections on port 8080 to the qBittorrent computer.
