Running multiple uTserver's on one machine?

Anyone know if its possible to run multiple utserver sessions on one box. I have modified the config file to change the port on which it is broadcast on (IE: instead of 8080 i used 8181)

Everything seemed to work for a few hours and then something caused both of them to crash. Has anyone got any success stories with this?

Figure out (or help figure out) what caused it? The crash may not even be related to the fact that two instances are running simultaneously. There should (as far as I can tell) be no reason you couldn't run multiple instances.

I have a remote server with 3 instances of utorrent running. The process is fairly simple.

Create users on the server in normal fashion. In the user folder place a copy of software. In my case I created a utorrent.conf to hold my initial settings customized for each user. Each user has a different port for both webui & working. For example, the webui ports are 8081, 8082, etc. Each has a different random working port. I also found that for some reason it does not work well for the the webui & working ports to be shared. The individual setup for each is almost the same as what you would do if your only to run one.

Once your setup is complete, set the permissions correctly for each user. It is possible to use screen to start the client under each of the individual users login. In my case I edited the init.d script and created completely separate one for each user. Once tested, I set them to run at boot.

You now have multiple personalized instances of the program running as different users that start at boot time. Each has it own settings and web interface, and separate download folders.

Something that does not work. Opening each in the same browser at the same time will not work. You can open them 1 at time without issue or open all on different computers at the same time. For some reason the webui gets funky when trying to update more than one instance to the same computer. I don't really care why, since In real time usage it's not a problem.
