No Permissions to start Transmission??

Unread post by jazzperm » Wed Apr 06, 2016 10:00 am

I am able to install Transmission, but cant start the service. I have followed several instructions, such as https://youtu.be/RPVs-Gt44dg

Whatever installation guide I follow this is the outcome:
root@NASDS413J:~# /var/packages/transmission/scripts/start-stop-status start
Starting Transmission ...
su: Permission denied

Hope someone can help me. Thnx in advance

Workaround:

Code: Select all

sudo /var/packages/transmission/scripts/start-stop-status start

I found some guides that eventually ended up solving the problem.

You need to verify that the user you made for Transmission has full Read/Write access. Even if you did this through the web interface, behind the scenes (SSH) there was some manual configurations to be done.

Check out these guides and let me know if it helps!
