I've followed the instructions at http://flipsidereality.com/blog/linux/rtorrent-with-wtorrent-on-debian-etch-complete-howto/
on installing this package: http://www.wtorrent-project.org/trac/
This is going to be installed on a dedicated server to which i have root access. I've gone through all the steps; lighthttpd is running, as is rtorrent on the user it is installed under. However, in going through the configuration file at /install.php, it says:
"Error: cannot connect to rtorrent, please check host, folder and port values (and user/password if you have auth set up)."
Attached is a screenshot of the install.php in my web-browser. rtorrent is connected to through scgi and XMLRPC, both of which i'm sure to have set up correctly (you can see how through a quick scan of the install tutorials). I believe the port (5000) to be closed as the reason for the connection failing, though, as a notice, I could easily be wrong.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I can cut+paste any configuration files you want to view.
