How To Install Deluge on CentOS 7

Install Deluge on CentOS 7

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install and configuration of Deluge on your CentOS 7. For those of you who didn’t know, Deluge is a popular multi-platform BitTorrent client often used to provide torrenting / seedbox functionality on Linux servers. Like rTorrent, deluge uses libtorrent as its backend. Supported by the daemon-service, awesome interface, and great plugin support, Deluge surpasses Transmission and rTorrent for functionality.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Deluge on a CentOS 7 server.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: CentOS 7.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Deluge on CentOS 7

Step 1. First, you need to enable EPEL and Nux repository on your system.

wget http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-5.el7.nux.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh nux-dextop-release-0-5.el7.nux.noarch.rpm
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm

Step 2. Installing Deluge.

Now we can install deluge and all necessities with Yum:

yum -y install deluge-web

Once complete, you can verify Deluge is installed by running the below command:

systemctl start deluge-web
systemctl enable deluged-web
systemctl status deluge-web

Step 3. Accessing Deluge.

Deluge will be available on HTTP port 8112 by default. Open your favorite browser and navigate to http://yourdomain.com:8112 or http://server-ip-address:8112.  The default password for deluge is a deluge, better change it when you are first to login. If you are using a firewall, please open port 8112 to enable access to the control panel.

sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=8112/tcp
sudo firewall-cmd --reload
