Rookie (2/14)



  1. I was having a similar issue. When I would reboot the server, plugins would be able to install again. That is until I rebooted the server and it didn't boot properly. Turned out it was a flash drive issue, plugins were failing when trying to write to the USB, and ultimately the USB was so corrupted it failed in creating the file system on boot. I'd make a backup of my flash drive ASAP, just in case it's failing.
  2. Thanks for the help @jonathanm! I used RUFUS to do a proper full write format as well as a bad sector check on the USB. I then re-made the USB drive using the USB creator and copied over the config backup... and ran into the exact same problem as before. I was so sure it was going to work. I finally gave in and hooked up a video card, keyboard, monitor and booted in safe mode (with plugins disabled) and it worked fine. Turns out that my cache drive had dropped and been un-assigned from the array probably because of cable jiggling and without the cache one of the plugins (unbalance? unassigned devices? swap file?) was screwing everything up during start up. Re-assigning the cache (while in safe mode), starting the array and then rebooting did the trick.
  3. My Unraid server was having issues with plugins not being able to update. I thought I'd just reboot it and hope it fixed the problem. Unfortunately, after rebooting the server wouldn't start at all--headless system, no Web GUI, no SSH. Now I actually needed some files from the server urgently, so I'm panicking. After reading up in the forums, it seems like it might just be an issue with the boot USB, and sure enough when I pull the USB and plug it into another computer it's full of FSCKxxxx.REC files in the root directory. I was able to copy the contents of the config directory over and prepared a new USB. Formatting a new USB using the USB creation tool took hours because of the bug causing it to get stuck in "syncing file system...". So I ended up trying tons of different sticks in different ports, until I stumbled on the forum solution of changing the drive name manually to "UNRAID" while it's stuck in "syncing file system". Ugh. Unfortunately, because of this bug I was just happy that I got the USB creation to work and wasn't worrying about the fact that the USB stick I was using when I finally got it to work was kind of jenky. I transferred the config from the old stick to the new stick and boot the server. I'm overjoyed that everything seems to be working fine. I can update plugins again. I go ahead and click the button to transfer the license to this new USB stick. Then I reboot the system and to bring the array online... and it doesn't start. F*ck my life. The Web UI just won't start. I'm able to SSH in and from what I can tell the USB thinks it's full and isn't able to create the file system. I get an insufficient space error running the diagnostics command. So I play around some more. I make a backup of the config directory from the jenky USB and re-run the USB creation tool on it. I can get the server to boot from the freshly created USB, but when I transfer the config directory to it, it won't boot and has the same insufficient space problem. Now I create a third USB with the creation tool and transfer the backup config from the second jenky USB to this new third stick... and everything works! But I have to wait a year until I can transfer the license to a new USB? I've requested a transfer to a new USB from support, but it seems like it'll take a few days at least--and I still urgently need those files. So my questions: Does anyone have any ideas what's causing the insufficient space problem on my USB, other than the USB is just jenky? I don't want the same thing to start happening to this third USB. Is there any thing I should try to make the current jenky USB work while I'm waiting to transfer the license to a new USB?
  4. I've noticed something similar. Torrents would mysteriously stop downloading at 95%+ completion and just sit there for days. After restarting deluge, the torrents would complete in seconds. I assume it has something to do with PIA's ongoing port forwarding issues (the port forwarding wasn't getting properly renewed?). Yesterday Deluge stopped connecting at all to my preferred Sweden server, so I was forced to switch to another server. Seems to work fine now.
  5. Unbalance doesn't seem to start after upgrading to 6.8.0-rc1. The service shows as stopped and won't start. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin, but the problem persisted. Launching from command line works (/usr/local/emhttp/plugins/unbalance/unbalance -port 6237).
  6. Just noticed that the docker has updated to Deluge 2.0! I'm already seeing a noticeable drop in my CPU load an RAM usage with a moderate number of torrents running. Kudos to: Arvid Norberg (libtorrent), Calum "Cas" Lind (Deluge), and of course @binhex!
  7. See the FAQ under "Q1. I am having issues using a post processing script which connects to CouchPotato/Sick Beard, how do i fix this?". You need to define "ADDITIONAL_PORTS" environment variables to allow outgoing connections from the VPN docker to another container/application.
  8. If the problem is specifically connecting deluge with couchpotato (both running on the same host), check the FAQ under the heading "How do i connect CouchPotato to DelugeVPN". The process is a lot more complicated than for things like Radarr/Sonarr because Couchpotato connects directly to the deluge daemon (instead of the webui) so you need to use the deluge credentials from the /config/auth file. (disclaimer: i haven't used Couchpotato in a ages, so it's possible it interfaces through the Deluge WebUI now)
  9. Glad you got it sorted. I've had good success using freshtomato (forum link) as firmware for my wireless AP.
  10. I'm no expert but it sounds like a local networking issue. Check things like cables and MTU settings. Double check your ddwrt settings to make sure it's not doing anything it's not supposed to be doing (particularly things like QoS or other flow controls and anything that involves packet inspection). Make sure your not doing things like using Wi-Fi for your torrent box or running a VPN client on your router in addition to the VPN client running on the delugeVPN box. Maybe try reverting back to the older ddwrt firmware.
  11. The core has been completely rewritten to maintain compatibility with the latest libtorrent versions. The biggest difference is in terms of performance--the new Deluge v.2.0 is a lot more resource efficient especially when seeding a large number of torrents. But there are plenty of cool new features too. For example, Deluge v.2.0 adds multiuser support in the WebUI, so you can have different login usernames and passwords and each user will only see their own torrents. The roadmap suggests that cas was aiming for a Dec. 31 release of 2.0.0, but I'm not so sure he's going to make it because of the Windows issues. Nevertheless, the project is really close to a release and it's probably a good time to start thinking about a docker for it. Plus the Christmas holidays might make a good time for people to play with an experimental docker to find bugs .
  12. @binhex Any chance of getting a Deluge-2.0 VPN docker? The beta has been out for a year now and is quite stable from my (albeit limited) testing. The biggest current issues before a final 2.0 release seem to be around the Windows version not playing well with Python 3 (from the bug-tracker).
  13. Yes. See my post a few posts up. Preclear just inexplicably stalled about 20 hours into pre-read. Tried it again and the same thing happened.
