TorrentFlux – Manage your downloads

Posted in Open Source at 2:22 pm by Karel MALBROUKOU

Hey guys!

Long time i didn’t make any post here. Well, I did a lot of other things, like programming in Python, looking for a job … I’m really not good at it.

Anyway, today i come back with Torrentflux, an old old torrent client. But as Vuze has evolved now in that way, the client is also capable of search in different engines like isoHunt, PirateBay, TorrentBox and others…

The best thing about TorrentFlux is that it is web-based!!
And yes, why not turning your old PC into a permanent downloading machine.

If you have limited downloads at Home, like me, better to not use it … but well, i do use it 😛

Here’s the ingredients you need to use it:
– A UNIX machine (*BSD / Linux …)
– LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP)
– And of course, your old machine ^^

You can get TorrentFlux here.

The installation is pretty easy, find the how-to inside the tarball.

Note: If the search feature does not work, be sure about permissions and that your php.ini has allow_url_fopen to On.

By the way, keeping a movie or games and keeping it for more than 24 hours, without having the original version is illegal … in some countries! 😀
