so do u think that just moving all the TF files from the sd1 to /home would work without me having to reinstall anything?

ok ive got it installed but i have a problem
and the problem is this

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2 2.9G 1.8G 1.1G 63% /

2.9GB space like wtf , at first it said sd1 then my friend tried to mount the other partition(sd2) onto sd1 but it says that it already is.

and linux is reporting

[root@ks355117 ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 2.9G 1.1G 1.8G 38% /
/dev/sda2 144G 33M 137G 1% /home
/dev/shm 105M 0 105M 0% /dev/shm

how do i get torrentflux to sda2? to use the 137GB space? rather than using the sda1

I am more of a Fedora Core man tbh


if you are running all the webserver properly [get the test page on your ip]
and mysql is running

navigate to /var/www/html/torrentflux/

then type nano config.php

put in your mysql details there

Job done

I presume its like most databases its all in the config file bud.

Hi i recently got a dedi server and have installed the linux "ready to use" OVH 64bit gentoo os,
but seem to have problems.

has anyone done or know how to install torrentflux or utorrent or anything like it onto this os? or even have a step by step guide on how to do it using ftp or putty,

update : i think the problem is something to do with the config file, would ii have to put my mysql details n pass into the config then create a database?
