Reconfigure Aria2

Hi guys

How I can reconfigure aria2?
I made these steps
Stop services with dietpi-services stop
Edit the following configuration file /var/lib/dietpi/dietpi-software/installed/aria2.conf, making your required changes.
Start services with dietpi-services start

I need to change download dir
I put into config file


→ dir exists
→ checked /var/log/aria2.log, nothing there

well as far as I can see, config file should be located at the following location


At least that’s what the service is telling me. I marked it in orange.

root@DietPiVM1:~# systemctl status aria2.service
● aria2.service - Aria2 (DietPi)

Thanks for help, it works :smiley:
But I took info from there
It would be very fine to correct it, I saw wrong info not only there.

thx for the hint. I update the entry.
If you have more things that needs adjustment, let me know.

in this post please change

rm /mnt/dietpi_userdata/.MiniDLNA_Cache/* && systemctl restart minidlna
rm -r /mnt/dietpi_userdata/.MiniDLNA_Cache/* && systemctl restart minidlna

I know it is small change but previous doesn’t work because there are also directories.
And it is helpful for linux newbies :smiley:

Also for aria2 we doesn’t need to restart all services.
Probably only restart aria2 is enough

systemctl restart aria2.service

I updated MiniDLNA post
