Scripts/initd – Transmission



init.d Script

(for other scripts, see the Scripts page)

Description

This is the bootscript for Debian, Ubuntu and other BSD deratives that use start-stop-daemon. Only use this script if you are not using the init script supplied by the transmission-daemon package.

Installation

This should be installed at /etc/init.d/ as transmission-daemon.

Make the script executable and make sure the privileges are correctly set:

chmod +x /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon
chown root:root /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon

Configuration

It’s recommended to run Transmission in it’s own user. By default, the script is configured to ‘transmission’. For the sake of security you shouldn’t set a password on this user Try:

$ adduser --disabled-password transmission

However, you can also set the USERNAME to any user you prefer.

For more information, visit the Running Transmission on a headless machine page

Use

Start the Transmission daemon manually by calling the init-script with the "stop" parameter:

/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start

To stop Transmission daemon, just call the init-script with the "stop" parameter:

/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop

Script "transmission-daemon"
