Its ideal to never have to restart rutorrent on your seedbox, but like any application sometimes you might need to restart your rtorrent from your rutorrent interface to ensure that everything runs nice and shiny.

Some general circumstances when you might need ot restart rutorrent:
1. torrents have become red in colour.
2. Plugins like Autotools is not working.
3. btsync cannot sync files
4. Timestamp labels like "created on" etc are not showing.

The process is quite simple and you can do it within rutorrent itself

Step 1. Open up your rutorrent interface and click on this rutorrent manager icon on your top panel as shown in the screenshot

Step 2.

Once you click on the button, rutorrent manager dialogue panel will show up. Once it shows up click on stop and wait for a few seconds and it will stop you rtorrent. It should look something like this :

Step 3.

Now press the Start Button and it will restart back your seedbox in few seconds.

That's it your rutorrent will be back online and you can again use it, it just takes a few seconds and should fix any/most of your rutorrent related errors.

Pro Tip : In case your rutorrent is down when you open up the rutorrent interface, just refresh the rutorrent it will bring up the dialogue manager and just hit the start button.

If you need more information let me know about it in your replies and I will update the tutorial.
