Me and a few my friends have a server that we share. We'd like to have all the information shared, by this I mean all the torrents and downloads in the same folder - although each user should have it's own subfolder.This would prevent us from downloading the same content multiple time.I'd prefer not having to share one user password but instead have different users with the content shared.
Is this possible?
Check out the NextCloud option, as this can be easily achieved. Follow this guide to set it up and symlink accordingly. It's honestly the easiest way. Otherwise you can install the _h5ai directory and easily browse each users directories.
Thanks for the information!
NextCloud or h5ai would allow to share only the downloads, right?When each user logs in, they only see their torrents so they wouldn't know what's new, correct?
I would prefer the NextCloud option for this as h5ai will simply make each users downloads directory view-able/downloadable via simply entering in the users name in place of your own on the download links. It's a matter of preference really, however, NextCloud will be much more robust and allow you to do a number of things. It's all a fiddle with this and fiddle with that game.
Sure, sharing the downloaded files.What about sharing the actual torrents so people don't unknowingly download the same thing?
