Why to create a server with a torrent client with web access? I live with other people that uses torrent too. I had a computer running a server with other services, so I decided to add this client (transmission-daemon) with web access, in this way we don't need to let computers on. Just this one. Everybody have web access to it and it is so simple to use.
But wich client to use? I searched a little bit and found that exists some famous ones as w3btorrent and torrentflux. but they need a web-server running like apache. And I don't want to setup it too, because I don't need it. So I choosed transmission the native torrent client in Ubuntu.
So, to install it in Ubuntu server you use:
$ sudo apt-get install transmission-daemon
Now you need to setup it, my configuration file was in /home/user/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json
The options are a lot but it is easy to understand them.
