Build your own Torrent Tracker

I am currently looking into creating my own private BitTorrent tracker for my own stuff, so like what I usually do I googled open source BitTorrent tracker, you would think that with all the torrent site around you would have seen a lot of result related to creating your own ratio based BitTorrent Tracker, but that is not the case so far I have only found 5 five of them which would comply to my requirements meaning it must run on a *nix server, it must be open source.

Diferior - Seems to be the most developed of the bunch and most updated it has quite a impressive feature list, more info about it at here

RivetTracker is a modified version of PHPBTTracker, Written in PHP, this BitTorrent tracker provides the same functionality as most other trackers and uses MySQL as the database backend. It provides an RSS feed, optional support for HTTP seeding, detailed connection statistics, more information and screenshots at here

PHPBTTracker is a simple and straightforward BitTorrent Tracker, more information and demo at here

TBSource code contains the basic components needed to build a private ratio based Bit-Torrent tracker. Originally based on the ByteMonsoon source, TBSource has easily become the most commonly used core for many of the private sites around today. you can get it here

BtiTracker is a complete php tracker system for BitTorrent, easy to setup and configure. Full remote admin management. you can get it here
