BNBT comes with a built-in web server (file downloader) that will allow you to serve other online files for your tracker users.
The online location of this folder is http://trackerURL:port/files/.
The configuration key bnbt_file_dir is used to specify the location of a folder on your computer that will serve as the container for this URL.
If you used the BNBT EasyTracker installer, a folder named "files" was created within the BNBT EasyTracker program folder, and your configuration should automatically be set to read from this folder.
bnbt_file_dir = files
It is only coincidental that the "files" folder on your hard drive can be accessed online at http://trackerURL:port/files/... You could, of course call the folder on your hard drive "fileserver", change the configuration key, and the files within would still be accessible from the same URL.
The built-in file server can be quite useful. Here are the most common uses:
PLEASE NOTE: It is almost always necessary to start the HREF value with a leading slash ( / ).
The HREF value used in the image file examples above is also used to specify the category tag images used by your tracker, and must also begin with a leading slash.
