Ubuntu qBittorrent-nox + Web GUI won't start downloads
« on: January 03, 2019, 07:31:54 PM »
Running Ubuntu server 16.04, qbittorrent and qbittorrent-nox installed via apt. I run qbittorrent-nox on startup with a cron job, or manually.

It was working and happily downloading torrents prior to the holidays. Now, I can add torrents through the web GUI but they don't start.

I can manage existing torrents in the web GUI, which I jsut verified by deleting a torrent as a well as the files on disk, which were deleted.

I followed the advice I found here to enable logs, but am not getting any log files.

[Application]
FileLogger\Enabled=true
FileLogger\Age=6
FileLogger\DeleteOld=true
FileLogger\Backup=true
FileLogger\AgeType=0
FileLogger\Path=~/.local/share/data/qBittorrent/
FileLogger\MaxSize=10

Sorry for the sparse info but I'm not sure where to start with this.

I'm having the same issue. Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS and qb 4.1.5, however it does find seeds/peers, tries to download and fails. I use PIA and nothing's changed. I also run on qb 4.1.4 on Win10 and can download no problem, also using PIA, both use same exact settings.

Having this same issue. Everything is working as expected on my Win 10 client, but none of the torrents will get past downloading metadata or if they do, they immediately go into a Stalled status and just hang there.

Does qBitTorrent's logger window give any clues?

Idk how to start the logger... I've downgraded QB to 4.0.3. and still fails on downloads. Upgraded back to 4.1.5 and still fails. Win10 4.14 client still works no problem.

I meant the Execution Log window/tab in qBitTorrent...which I assume also exists even under Linux versions of qBitTorrent.
You may have to select at the top of qBT's window under VIEW, Log, (check) Show...and check the other options with it.

that does not exist with the nox version, there is a special way to start the logger.

Same here.
Ubuntu 16.04
qbittorrent 4.1.15

Runs fine for a day or two, then any newly added torrents snever start. They get added, but never start. The only fix for me is to restart the service. I've now added a nightly cron job to restart it.

How can we enable debug run logs to help the devs? I can't find them on my system.

Edit: I've enabled logging as per https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/6033. Hope this catches the issue.

I too enabled logging and don't get any log files.

Code: [Select]
FileLogger\Enabled=true
FileLogger\Age=2
FileLogger\DeleteOld=true
FileLogger\Backup=true
FileLogger\AgeType=1
FileLogger\Path=~/.local/share/data/qBittorrent/
FileLogger\MaxSize=10
Code: [Select]
ls ~/.local/share/data/qBittorrent/
BT_backup

BT_backup contains a bunch of torrent files, nothing that looks like a log.
