phpABC 2.1

Soon after I released phpABC 2.0, I realized there was a much better way of handling the multi language support. A way that would only take a few minutes to implement and wouldn’t require any language files, which basically meant a lot of work I did for 2.0 was pointless. Oh well. At least the package size is smaller; those language files doubled the size of the release, to a whopping 50K! :D

Also in 2.1 I updated the templates so they display the field names in the language ABC is using.

Unpack into a new directory.

phpABC 2.0 - Multilanguage support & more

Quite a few changes in this update. Most notable is the multilanguage support. phpABC will now work if ABC is using another language besides English. English, French, and Norwegian support is include by default; if your ABC uses another language, you’ll need to upload the .lang file you use for ABC via the form, and phpABC will convert it for quicker loading.

Also included in this update is the ability to upload .torrent files so they can be added to phpABC. This is useful for adding torrents from private trackers or any .torrent that ABC is unable to download directly.

There were also some small changes and bug fixes. Unpack rar in a new directory

I’ve created an actual homepage for this project, as opposed to just blog entries. phpABC Homepage

phpABC 1.5

Another day, another update. Fixed up the cookies support so it doesn’t save anything to the server. Using cookies should now be a viable option if you do not have permission to update local files with PHP.

phpABC v1.41 - Cookie support

With v1.41 you can now save your config settings in a browser cookie and/or on the phpABC server. Saving your settings in a cookie increases security since it will only be possible to access phpABC from your browser.

phpABC 1.4: Set ABC’s preferences remotely

Version 1.4 of phpABC supports ABC 3.0’s new “SETPARAM” and “GETPARAM” commands and uses them to recreate the preferences screen in ABC. You’ll need to have Get Parameters and Set Parameters enabled in your ABC permissions to update your preferences remotely.

Other new features include the ability to set torrent priority and a streamlined installation process. Overall quite a few files changed so install into a fresh directory for best results, though you may be able to simply overwrite your existing files. Be sure to overwrite the config file as it’s changed slightly.

phpABC 1.3 for ABC v3.0

A new version of ABC came out the other day, and it appears the web service got a few more information fields as well as the ability to stop torrents in addition to pausing them. There was also some renaming which broke existing versions of phpABC, so a new release has been created. It works with both PHP4 and 5. You’ll want to install it in a new folder.

Download phpABC 1.3

Update: This old version gets a lot more downloads than other outdated versions; I suspect it is because the blog entry has ABC 3.0 in the name. In case you have arrived here via search engine, phpABC is at version 2.1 as of October 2005 . Find out more at the phpABC homepage.

phpABC 1.2 for php4

Download phpABC v1.2.php4 for php4 and up.

If you are running php5, it is recommended you use phpABC v1.2 instead of phpABC 1.2.php4

phpABC v1.2 Released

New update of phpABC. Includes new configuration page and also an integrated skin management system so people can easily add new layouts. Also updated the look of the default skin, adding 3D buttons and also a progress bar.

If you are upgrading, it is recommended you unpack the RAR in a new directory or delete your current phpABC directory before installing.

Ideas for the future: RSS reader to finally add RSS functionality to ABC. Javascript “popup window” type interface to make phpABC even less like a web page and more like an application.

phpABC: A PHP web shell for the ABC Bittorrent Client

I needed a remote client to access my torrent files, and the current PHP edition, PHP4ABC, was outdated and a mess of spaghetti code. So I built a new client from scratch. It doesn’t have a pretty interface just yet but it’s easily customizable if you’re so inclined, and I’ll be sprucing it up for later versions.

Unpack the rar in your web space and read the documentation to finish installation.
Requires PHP5.
