Here is a quick guide to making rutorrent docker image work.

CREATE DIRECTORIES

You will need a parent directory and two subdirectories - one config, and one download. We also need to chown them appropriately to the user that will own them.

    # mkdir -P /path/to/rutorrent/config
    # mkdir -P /path/to/rutorrent/downloads
    # chmod 755 -R /path/to/rutorrent/
    # chown username:group -R /path/to/rutorrent

CREATE LAUNCH SCRIPT

Here is my sample launch script. Note that the user in question has both the UID and GUID of 1000

    #!/bin/bash

    docker run -d --privileged \
        --sig-proxy=false \
        --name=rutorrent \
        -v /storage/docker/rutorrent/config:/config \
        -v /storage/docker/rutorrent/downloads:/downloads \
        -e PGID=1000 -e PUID=1000 \
        -e TZ=America/Chicago \
        -p 80:80 -p 5000:5000 \
        -p 51413:51413 -p 6881:6881/udp \
        linuxserver/rutorrent
