Transmission settings lost in reboot

Post by chosen_too »

Latest release of Dietpi, when I change something in web interface of transmission, for example download dir, it reverts back in reboot.

When I manually stop daemon and edit config file settings are ok.

Same for me.
Manual changes in the config file are valid after daemon restart, but everything I change via web interface is lost after restart or reboot. The config file is not even touched by the changes in web interface.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks for reporting guys.

That sounds very similar to a reported Blynk Server issue: https://github.com/blynkkk/blynk-server/issues/1318
However there it is expected as you can read. Editing the config file via web UI is an unfinished feature there. I am just wondering why the even show it on current version, when it does not work....

Not sure about Transmission now. I will try to replicate and sort out any permission issues and such.
I moved the issue to GitHub to not forget about it: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/2793

Issue has been fixed for v6.25: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/2793

To apply the fix now:

Code: Select all

echo -e '[Service]\nGroup=dietpi\nSupplementaryGroups=debian-transmission' > /etc/systemd/system/transmission-daemon.service.d/dietpi-group.conf
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl restart transmission-daemon
