Qbittorrent on Docker stuck at downloading metadata

  • I installed the latest version of OMV (7.2.1-1) and installed the qbittorrent via following guide:

    https://docs.linuxserver.io/images/docker-qbittorrent/#usage from OMV docer compose plugin

    Web UI works and log does not states anything unusual:

    but when adding the magnet link, it is stucked at downloading metadata

    I checked the same link on desktop client and it worked,

    P.S: I installed it yesterday and checked and was working, but this morning it did not,

    I deleted and recreated docker container, still no result, webui is working but don't actually downloads anything


    Can someone suggest what to do?

  • did you open port 6881 on your router to your NASIP?


    please post your qbittorrent.yml file and revise that path used have permission for user 1000 and for group 100

  • Have you just tried one torrent? Stuck on downloading metadata normally means zero seeds/leeches so it has no clue what it is.

    thanks for the reply,

    This is my docker compose file

    I have not opened port 6881 on my router, did not thought it is necessary, because qbittorent was working on my previous nas install (OMV 5) and was working yesterday, also desktop clients works as well

    I forwareded 6881 to NAS ip, still no download

    Code
    -'CHANGE_TO_COMPOSE_DATA_PATH/qbittorrent/qbittorrent_data:/config'

    this is preconfigured docker compose appdata path, which works for qbitorrent and other containers as well

    for the downloaded files I use absolute path:

    Code
    - /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-287a56f0-a323-400e-8d9d-db4b2e467297/download:/downloads

    both locations are accessible by docker container and "users" in general

    its also the wrong path it will just install on the OS drive.

    for me PGID = 100 is good because 100 = user group

    Yeah wasn't saying it was wrong was just stating what I use.

  • to manage docker containers I use docker user and i have correct PUID and PGID for it

    (I use id USERNAME from ssh console to get those values)

    torrent was on downloading metadata whole day...

    tried others as well no go

    can you tell me how to verify it?

    I created the container from OMV webUI, which should use docker user and owner of the shared folder is docker user as well
