phpMyBitTorrent V1.2.2

We're proud to announce the release of phpMyBitTorrent 1.2.2 The focus of this release has been on interface improvements (including entirely new English language files and documentation, new layout for many pages, more mouse-over help etc.), compatibility (phpMyBitTorrent now runs(dose not suport external torrents) on PHP 5 as well as PHP 4.x), and looks (e.g. new category icons and file icons). But there's are also entirely new stuff, such as Torrent Bans, and a Donations block that can be automatically updated with data from PayPal's IPN. This comes in addition to a whole host of bugfixes. Please refer to the changelog for further details. We feel that all of this have made phpMyBitTorrent much more mature and stable. There's no question however, that much remains to be done. We're looking forward to hearing from you on phpmybittorrent.com/forum, where we'll be working on the next release, as well as on bleeding-edge stuff like a bridge to phpBB3 (yes, 3, yes, there's no RC yet of that).

phpMyBitTorrent 1.0 Released

phpMyBitTorrent is a powerful PHP BitTorrent Tracker (server) that runs on any HTTP server on any platform.
It supports all the common BitTorrent extensions, is completely customizable in look and settings, and can generate alternate download links (Magnet, eDonkey) from Torrents that have been created with alternate hashes, ie. with Azureus.

Its perfect compatibility with Azureus and μTorrent allows the usage of the newest protocol extensions introduced by these two clients, for example HTTP Authentication, Compact Announce and Selective Scrape.
phpMyBitTorrent also supports the new XML Bencoder core, that converts Torrent files into XML documents for easier processing.... read more

New milestones

Dear phpMyBitTorrent users,
I've been really busy recently, and I'll be busier until July.

I want to inform you about the most recent improvements of phpMyBitTorrent.
After Sourceforge changed the CVS server for projects (so don't download from cvs.sourceforge.net anymore but use phpmybittorrent.cvs.sourceforge.net), all the work I did till now, except a few lazy files, is online inside CVS.

I didn't know that last Setup steps were not loaded in CVS: now they are, but I want to advise you that there are still some problems with OverLib that will be faced later.
As you should know, PHP's DOM XML is now a REQUIREMENT. Most servers can dynamically load DOM XML (till you keep Safe Mode disables), but it won't always work. I have prepared a guide and I have to translate it into English: it explains how to recompile DOM XML in the attempt to match PHP version (Windows doesn't seem to have such problems). Troubleshooting and help by PHP developers will make support easier for those who won't be able to install DOM XML.... read more

Important FAQs on recent bugs

Hi everyone,
I'm writing this article to make a summary of the most asked questions about both the ver. 0.7.10 and the lastest CVS version.

Q: I can't upload Torrents. Function bdec() does not exist!
A: If you are using 0.7.10, make sure that there is a line that includes the file "include/benc.php". The version has been tested, but it worked. Anyway...
If you are using lastest CVS, your takeupload.php is someway not up-to date and you need some more files.... read more

New unstable version coming

A new version of the phpMyBitTorrent Project is going to see the light!

The stable version will not be ready until the setup script is completed and after the implementation of the new Bencoder core that is under development.

Meanwhile, I'll let you taste the most recent changes to the tracker. These changes do not include much, except a new Admin feature to manage external trackers, some bug fixes and small visual enhancements. Sorry but no new theme is planned for now...

Development Status

Hi everyone,

let's review the situation on the development of phpMyBitTorrent.

I have resumed working after exams, and I'm planning exciting new features for the new version (release date has not been decided yet). I hope to release version 0.8 soon, instead of releasing a CVS dump again, which was even unstable.
The tracker is now working fine. All of the bugs in 0.7.3 have been fixed, particularly in announce.php.... read more

phpMyBitTorrent 0.7.3-Unstable Released!

phpMyBitTorrent is a BitTorrent tracker with enhanced features that no tracker has, like Alternate Link support for eDonkey2000, Magnet and eXeem; and much more!

phpMyBitTorrent has started to be released more frequently to bring you the best of BitTorrent.

This new version is "just" a CVS Checkout made today. It has some interesting new features, like an implementation of the Award Winning FCKeditor, Project of the Month December 2005 on SourceForge.net. It will allow you to write Torrent Description in full XHTML and change that default Welcome Message with everything you want, even a Flash Movie!... read more

Looking Forward to 0.8RC1

Here we are again.
I hope you all had a good time these days, with gifts & Pandoros, with fireworks, sweets and chocolat.

For the phpMyBitTorrent Team, this period was full of work on the new version, since we decided to give the best of us to be the best BitTorrent Tracker available.

Starting from this new year (btw Copyright Notice has been updated in CVS), I'll start releasing unstable CVS version on SourceForge's File Release System.
I have noticed most of the people upgrade their version to CVS because they like the new features that CVS Version has. Maybe you all noticed that phpMyBitTorrent released only 3 versions in one year. Maybe starting releasing more frequently can be a good sign of our unstoppable activity.... read more

Important notice for MySQL &lt; 4.1 users

Due to high demand, I have just released an Installation Script which is made for MySQL < 4.1. The install.sql script provided with version 0.6 is made for MySQL >= 4.1, ad gives Syntax Error on older version. Unfortunately many people cannot upgrade their MySQL 3.x or 4.0 databases, so I decided to upload that script for compatibility reasons.

Thank you.

Development Status

Dear phpMyBitTorrent users,
I wish you all had a very good time these days: did you eat too much Panettone? I'm a bit late, so I can only wish you a Happy New Year.
Jokes apart, it's time for the Development Status, on which many people could be interested.

You should all know that I'm a Computer Engineering student, and this period is exam time for me. I won't be able to code much, but I have many good news for you all.... read more

Porting phpMyBitTorrent to PHP-Nuke

Due to popular demand, the phpMyBitTorrent Project has officially started porting this Bit Torrent Portal to PHP-Nuke. It will be installed on PHP-Nuke enabled sites as a Module. The easiest way to run a Bit Torrent tracker on your PHP-Nuke community.

There is no scheduled release date. We will work in CVS again, so you'll be able to see the progress.

Meanwhile, I want to take the time to ask you all what do you think of phpMyBitTorrent after releasing version 0.6. We reached a good development level, but we need to go on. In Public Discussion Forum, you can spend a few minutes giving your opinion on this tracker. Spreading the word over Bit Torrent forums will be also appreciated.... read more

Next release is coming

We finally reached a good level in development.

Previous release was made on May. I think it's time for a new release.

There are many new things with this version. First of all, it won't be a Beta any more. All the bugs have been fixed and testing is being accurate. But still the program is missing in some features. At this time, you can't edit the Torrents you uploaded and pages don't 100% validate as HTML Transitional on W3C validator.
But now you have Admin Area to change phpMyBitTorrent settings and do many fun things. This is just one of the many new features that will be in version 0.6.... read more

Hi there.
Long time I don't post here good news?

Today is a special day: development has officially resumed.
