I wanted to setup my own private tracker so I could have people use my WordPress site to download files via bitTorrent that were hosted on my local bitTorrent client PC.
This was fun and easy to do.
Setup a WordPress site and add a few plugins:
katracker (the tracker)
wp-add-mime-types (to allow .torrent files to be uploaded)
ultimate-member (to keep it secure to members only)
um-recaptcha (if you don’t know then you are in the wrong place)
Katracker has a few settings…
Create a torrent in your bitTorrent client with the proper announce URL from your site
