Hi,

I am super desperate as I am getting the same issue you have:

******** Information ********
To control qBittorrent, access the Web UI at http://localhost:31337
The Web UI administrator user name is: admin
The Web UI administrator password is still the default one: adminadmin
This is a security risk, please consider changing your password from program preferences.

I have tried different ports, everything I can think of.  I can't find any log for qbittorrent in /var/logs,  I am completely at a loss.  What did you do to get it working?

I should add that I am very new to using headless linux.  I used qbittorrent on my other computer for years and my wife is used to the web interface.

I have this exact issue as well.

I built this 18.04 VM from scratch this morning and installed qbt using instructions line by line from here:

https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorr ... and-newer)

and get the same issues as the OP posted.

Service says it's running, but when starting manually it always halts after the marked point below:

******** Information ********
To control qBittorrent, access the Web UI at http://localhost:8080
The Web UI administrator user name is: admin
The Web UI administrator password is still the default one: adminadmin
This is a security risk, please consider changing your password from program preferences.

------------------Never gets past this point
03/02/2016 15:51:03 - The Web UI is listening on port 8080
03/02/2016 15:51:04 - qBittorrent is successfully listening on ...


anyone?

I have re-installed on a fresh vm with 18.04.1 LTS, with both stable and unstable repositories and it still gets stuck as described above.  Oddly another machine that had 17.10 with qbittorrent-nox that was upgraded to 18.04.1 LTS has not had any trouble operating, even after the upgrade.

Any new clues on how to get qbittorrent-nox running on a new box?

FIxed.... still does not report it's listening when started, but it's working now.

#sudo apt autoremove qbittorrent-nox
#sudo apt install qbittorrent-nox
#sudo netstat -tulanp | grep 8080

tcp6      0      0 :::8080                :::*                    LISTEN      6500/qbittorrent-no

I am getting this issue after upgrading from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2. Already tried the method of running qbittorrent-nox manually and also remove/install. Still not working.

However, netstat does shows the port is running.

Code: Select all

netstat -tulanp | grep 8282
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.42:8282           0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      1246/qbittorrent-no 
Highly appreciate any help.

edit: I also tried rebooting the server without success.

In the end, I removed qbittorrent and libtorrent packages and then installed previous version, qbittorrent 4.1.1 and libtorrent9 1.1.7. It works. So there is definitely problem with the latest version of the ubuntu package. Please fix it.
