Adding a quick note on the problem user eyepoke was talking about above.
The hint to what the problem was is in this sentence:
Quote:
uTorrent would not recognise the files, instead it would create a new folder where the files were and begin the download (LET THIS HAPPEN).


I'd say that the problem was in defining the path to the torrent correctly.
For example you have some files on the path like so:
Code:
/home/JohnDoe/Videos/MyTorrents/torrentDir01/torrentFile01
/home/JohnDoe/Videos/MyTorrents/torrentDir01/torrentFile02

And you create a torrent of a whole directory torrentDir01 with all the files in it.
Then you upload the .torrent file and get the version with the passkey back from mma-torrents.com
Then you put that .torrent into your torrent client
And you are supposed to point to the directory with the files so you can start seeding.
Right?

Now the mistake was pointing to the path wrong... pointing towards the wrong directory.
What user eyepoke did was give path like so:
Code:
/home/JohnDoe/Videos/MyTorrents/torrentDir01/

and it was supposed to be like so:

Code:
/home/JohnDoe/Videos/MyTorrents/


The torrent client is looking for the directory called torrentDir01/
And there is no torrentDir01/ directory inside of torrentDir01/ directory itself.
There are only file01 and file02.
So the client would just start downloading the whole torrent.
It doesn't know it is already "inside" of the correct directory.

So you have to point "one level up" so to speak.
If you point at directory called MyTorrents/ the client will find the directory torrentDir01/ inside of it.
Then it'll check the files inside of it and start seeding!

ps.
I'm pretty sure I could have explained this better.
But can't be bothered to go editing now...
This is just a comment, not a tutorial on correct path syntax.
So anyway... hopefully it helps someone with the same problem.


Admin comment: Thank you for this post
