Path is not valid Problem


Hi

I am using centos 32 Bit

In my server unzip is installed in /usr/bin
and its path is /usr/bin/unzip

i have also chmodded it to 777

But Torrent-flux will say that path is not valid.

Same problem for wget,gre,python etc

What do you mean path is not valid? How is it possible for wget or grep to say that?

what is the output of

Code:
echo $PATH
Code:
which wget
Code:
file wget
Code:
wget
?

A path variable usually shouldn't point to the file itself, it should point to the directory that contains the file.

I would guess that torrent flux is the same. So when it is trying to find the "unzip" binary, in your case it is looking for "/usr/bin/unzip/unzip" which doesn't exist.

That being said, i haven't used torrentflux in many years, if I recall correctly, it hasn't been maintained for a long time, and may well be full of security bugs. Based on the dates in the tarball, they are all aroudn 2008.

Perhaps try using "/usr/bin" in the torrentflux configuration.

Here are the outputs

echo $PATH
/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin

which wget
/usr/bin/wget
find wget
find: wget: No such file or directory

wget

wget: missing URL
Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...

Try `wget --help' for more options.

I don't think so . i am using torrentflux-b4rt it is a upgraded version . and it needs path to the executable file.

The find and wget error messages are normal (you need to give find the name of an existing directory and wget a URL).

Can you post outputs showing what you mean by "Torrent-flux will say that path is not valid" and "Same problem for wget,gre,python etc"?

Thanks -- that is clear.

Netsearching did not identify a definitive solution. One suggestion was that the problem is caused by the PHP configuration not allowing access to the listed programs. A claimed fix (but only for the transmissioncli part) is at http://itnuggets.blogspot.com/.
