[SOLVED] Doubt: Change value of Transmission download-queue-size

Post by derebo »

Hello,

Transmission settings are stored in

Code: Select all

/var/lib/transmission-daemon/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json
If I edit values...

Code: Select all

    "download-queue-enabled": true,
    "download-queue-size": 2,
to show as...

Code: Select all

    "download-queue-enabled": true,
    "download-queue-size": 10,
because I would like up to 10 files downloading at the same time and then restart transmission

Code: Select all

systemctl restart transmission-daemon.service
the value is restored to

Code: Select all

    "download-queue-size": 2,
As that value cannot be set from Transmission web interface either, what would be the correct way of editing it?

Thank you in advance

I guess Transmission stores changed settings to the file when stopping. Hence, for all settings that cannot be changed via web interface, you'd need to stop the service first, change the file, start the service.
