Make the init.d script to be excutable and to run at startup

# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/deluged
# update-rc.d deluged defaults

Logrotation

# nano /etc/logrotate.d/deluged
/var/log/deluge/*.log {
        weekly
        missingok
        rotate 7
        compress
        notifempty
        copytruncate
        create 600
}

Now to see that it all works

# invoke-rc.d deluged start
