Start Transmission Web UI on Start

Hi all,

I'm having some trouble trying to get the web interface of transmission to start on boot. I've got the daemon in my rc.conf and is starting up, however the only way I can get the web interface to work is to fire up the application on the machine. Is there a way to have it start automatically?

Cheers

Hi Cyrusm, Its not really very useful as its a headless machine and nobody really logs onto it.

Have you added your config options to /etc/conf.d/transmissiond ?

My /etc/conf.d/transmissiond consists of:

TRANSMISSION_HOME=/media/files/homes/trans
TRANS_USER="root"
TRANS_ARGS="-g $TRANSMISSION_HOME/.config/transmission-daemon"

https://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/He … ge/General looks like a pretty clear cut guide.  this could be more useful
one thing to note is that it sets up a "transmission" user, which is more secure than running the application on your server as root.
