I can not seed a torrent from a folder with Transmission - Create

Post by levithanh0209 » Thu Jul 11, 2019 6:07 pm

Hello everyone,
I do not know if I post in the good forum, you will tell me ...
I have a problem with transmission:
I have a server on which is installed transmission (in short, a seedbox). I can easily create torrents from a file and upload them to a torrent site.
By cons, when I try to create a torrent from a folder, the torrent is well created, it is well accepted by the torrent site but no way to seed.

Example:
I create a torrent from an epub file placed in /data/transmission/downloads/ebook/mybook (/data/transmission/downloads/ebook/mybook/mybook.epub)

Code: Select all

$ transmission-create -p -t http://server.tracker/announce -o /data/transmission/downloads/ebook/mybook/mybook.epub mybook.torrent
There, no worries, I can seeder.
But if I do:

Code: Select all

$ transmission-create -p -t http://server.tracker/announce -o /data/transmission/downloads/ebook/mybooks mybooks.torrent
Where "mybooks" is a folder.
There, the torrent is well created, it contains good informations (visible with transmission-show); It is accepted by the torrent site. But impossible to seed. It remains with the status "Download" but remains at 0%.
I do not understand what can block the creation of this torrent.

Someone would have a idea?

Thank you!
