it is works indeed but i should give a little info to noobs like me

after finish message in order to start webui service use this commands
sudo openssl rand -base64 32
it will give you a long key
copy it and use it in this command
aria2c --enable-rpc --rpc-listen-all --rpc-secret="paste here your key and delete quotes" --daemon
after that you can login into webui by typing your raspberry lan ip (192.168.xxx.xxx)
after that in order to use webui open Settings-->Connection Settings
paste your key into "Enter the secret token (optional):" area and hit Save Connection configuration.
You are ready to go :)

will the web ui open when i type 192.168.xxx.xxx:6800 in my browser? if it will, then this script would be very useful.

I'll give it a try right now.

it worked! i typed the local ip address of my raspberry pi server and it displayed the aria2 web ui. But it looks like an unfinished html webpage. Attached is the print screen of the web ui

fix
