RSS Regex Mistake, Now Disk Full and Rtorrent Not Starting

WTF's picture


I'm new here and just wanted to say hello first!

I've managed to get everything up and running but when I was adding the RSS regex expression I got it wrong and it added 400+ torrents in for download (maxing my disk space and stopping rtorrent).

I've deleted them from /srv/storage/incomming etc but every time I restart rtorrent they are added again and I get into the same loop.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to disable my regex and get it all back and running again?

Also on a side note I have a SMB mount point but the rtorrent user doesnt same to be able to write to the folder (even thought I've given it 777 perms) - anyone have a suggestion for that also?

Resolved, I edited my filters to make the offending filter much more specific and then deleted the rtorrent.lock file followed by a restart of rtorrent.

I'm really glad that you worked it out and posted back with the solution. TBH I wasn't 100% sure what you should do, so that's extra awesome! :)
