Running a tracker

Anyone know how I should go about this and what software I should use?

Also, I want it so that ONLY I can upload torrents to it and NOT let the public have access to put stuff up. Is this posssible?

Trackers are not allowed on dreamhost. (No permenently running programs are).

i contacted the support and they said it was OK.

this isnt going to be the next supernova, but rather something that ONLY i can post a few sports clips. this is why i want to make sure that only i can post torrents.

We are in the process of re-evaluating our official policy on BitTorrent software and are currently taking it on a case-by-case basis.

I use BNBT and run it from my own computer.

You can configure who has access for uploading, directory listing, etc.

see, i dont want to run my computer 24/7 thats why i wanted to run it on a webhost.

you can run it on a webhost (if they allow it).
