uTorrent Server (utserver) on Centos 7 (x86_64)
#!/bin/bash
# Took me awhile to figure out how to install utserver on Centos 7 x86_64... Especially with the new systemd subsystem. None of the builds I saw support it - but it will work with a couple symlinks and compatibility packages.

A version 3.3 does not work! On this manual - http://blog.kxr.me/2013/08/stand-alone-utorrent-server-x64-64bit.html everything works, though version Ubuntu 13.04 server.
Just do not understand how to add to autostart daemon on CentOS 7?
Using this script for start restart stop daemon:

!/bin/sh

shell_user="root"
uts_bin="/opt/utorrent/utserver"
lib_path="/opt/utorrent/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu"
pid_file="/opt/utorrent/pid/utserver.pid"
settings_path="/opt/utorrent/settings"
config_file="/opt/utorrent/conf/utserver.conf"
log_file="/opt/utorrent/log/ut.log"

start(){

    if [ -s "$pid_file" ]
    then
            kill -s 0 `cat $pid_file` > /dev/null 2>&1
            if  [ "$?" == "0" ]
            then
                    echo "Err: Utorrent seems to be running, PID `cat $pid_file`"
                    exit 1
            fi
    fi
            echo "Starting Utorrent Server.."
            #su -c "cd $settings_path;$uts_bin -settingspath $settings_path -configfile $config_file -logfile $log_file -pidfile $pid_file -daemon" $shell_user
            su -c "cd $settings_path; $lib_path/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 --library-path $lib_path $uts_bin -settingspath $settings_path -configfile $config_file -logfile $log_file -pidfile $pid_file -daemon" $shell_user

}
stop(){
if [ -s "$pid_file" ]
then
kill -s 0 cat $pid_file > /dev/null 2>&1
if [ "$?" == "0" ]
then
echo "Stopping Utorrent Server.."
kill cat $pid_file
tail -f /dev/null --pid cat $pid_file
rm -f $pid_file
else
echo "Err: Utorrent seems to be stopped, PID file $pid_file not found or empty"
fi
else
echo "Err: Utorrent seems to be stopped, PID file $pid_file not found or empty"
fi
}
status(){
if [ -s "$pid_file" ]
then
kill -s 0 cat $pid_file > /dev/null 2>&1
if [ "$?" == "0" ]
then
echo "Utorrent seems to be running, PID cat $pid_file"
else
echo "PID file present, but no process with PID cat $pid_file running"
fi
else
echo "Utorrent seems to be stopped, PID file $pid_file not found or empty"
fi
}

case "$1" in
start)
start

stop
;;

stop
rm -vf $settings_path/settings.dat*
start
;;
status)
status
;;
*)
echo "Usage $0 {start|stop|reload|status}"
;;

@nohnaimer this manual (centos) works fine, your manual is for ubuntu which is not related to current topic.

Please read the first paragraph of article:
Utorrent has released a 64 bit build for Linux platforms (see details here). The release is built on Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS). The problem is that if you try to run it on a distribution like RHEL/CentOS or any older distribution with old libraries, it will fail because of the newer dependencies like glibc 2.14 and libssl 1.0.0 etc.

But it is better to run something like this: vi /usr/lib/systemd/system/utserver.service

[Unit]
Description=uTorrent Server
After=network.target
# DaemonAfter=readynasd.service
# If your using ReadyNAS comment out above "After=network.target" and uncomment below.
# After=apache2.service readynasd.service

[Service]
# User=utserver
# Group=utserver
ExecStart=/apps/ut/utserver -daemon -configfile /apps/ut/config.txt -settingspath /apps/ut -logfile /apps/ut/log.txt -pidfile /apps/ut/pid
Type=forking
PIDFile=/apps/ut/pid

The script runs great but I had issues with the openssl.0.9.8e libraries of course. You need to install the 32bit libssl dependencies to get this to work correctly with the command below.

yum install openssl098e.i686

Here are my build steps. This process works on a clean install of CentOS. Run the commands under the root account.

  1. Install CentOS (7.4)
  2. disable selinux
  3. stop and disable firewalld
  4. yum update the system
  5. Reboot
  6. yum install openssl098e.i686
  7. ./setup.sh (to the path of where ever you put the script)
  8. Go the the IP address and port as pointed out in the echo of the script.

Should work for you. Cheers!
