If you are a member of the popular private BitTorrent tracker IPTorrents (IPT) you may have come across some strange errors yesterday and today. As we were informed by several of our readers, almost everyone seemed to get the following message when trying to log into IPT: “Username or password incorrect.”. First of all don’t panic – you haven’t been banned form the tracker (unless you did something stupid such as cheating). Second of all it’s not a fault at your end. What happened was that IPT’s database crashed and everyone’s passwords got re-set. Following is quoted from the site homepage:


IPT databases were fixed today but as a result it seems like all passwords were reset by accident.
This means when you log out your current password will not work anymore so go to your profile and change your password now.
Unfortunately, our email system went down at the same time the database fix went live. Its back up and running now!
This means you can now use the recover password function to retrieve your password.

To put it short, if you get the ‘Username or password incorrect’ error when trying to login to IPT, you can regain access to the tracker by recovering your account. Just go to http://www.iptorrents.com/recover.php and enter the email address you entered when signing up for IPT. You will then receive a new Email from IPT along with your new password. Use this password to login and after first login, feel free to change the password to whatever you like.

Note: This method will not work if you were banned for some reason.

UPDATE: It seems the DB has been restored so recovering may not be required at all.

We have restored IPT Database with a 24 hours old backup, those who had problem logging in, please try to logon with your old password.

IPTorrents is closed and we don’t have any invites – please do not ask for them here.

    Did you noticed that www.zamunda.net is offline but the trackers is online.

  2. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 11/13/2009 12:25:00 PM  

    Yes. We'll contact Zamunda admins to know whats up - but they are not easily reachable.

    Did you mean that zamunda couldn't be accessed from several countries?

    Well, it isn't working in Sri Lanka, that's for sure! just tried a belgium proxy, still ain't workin! Really am missing them and their great torrents

  12. Donny // 11/14/2009 03:36:00 AM  

    zamunda sucks balls. THere a day late in there torrents and who needs to see that alphabet soup letters. FInd a decent tracker

  13. tHe // 11/14/2009 07:20:00 AM  

    And who needs a tracker that has the torrents on day one but has 3 seeds and it comes in RARs that we have to extract so we can use them? It not only takes double the space but also takes time. I love those scene-wannabees that cry for good pre times and then take ages to extract Games or HD content. Awesome, lmao.

    If there's one thing I won't agree to, it's as to how good Zamunda is. I've been a part of a lot of private trackers, and nothing compares to zamunda in terms of speed and the sheer number of torrents there. Anything, virtually ANYTHING can be obtained there, any movie, you name it, they have it! Not even TorrentBits is as good as them...man, wish they rectify the problem as soon as possible.

    As a footnote, would you believe that they even had a 269 MB version of Windows XP which just absolutely kicked ass? :D

    Great post...thanks for the reminder to blog about the everyday things that people want to read. As a real estate agent, I too struggle with what to blog about. Thanks!
