I use TorrentFlux on one of my linux servers to consume torrents, recently after upgrading to MySQL noticed a bug, turns out it was unrelated to the the upgrade but in fact a bug in the .torrent file in question. If you get: “Got bad file info - path disallowed for security reasons” there is a problem inside the torrent file, probably files starting with a . , fine on linux but not on windoze. The solution is to go and edit on of the files. Go into your BitTornado directory, usually: /usr/local/TF_BitTornado/BitTornado/BT1/btformats.py Change line 7 from:
reg = compile(r’^[^/.~][^/]$’) To:
reg = compile(r’^[^/.~][^/]
