1. sudo apt-get install transmission
$ sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop
3. sudo vi /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon/settings.json
Do these things in the exact order:
Write the rpc-password in the /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json file, in double-quotes.
Save that fileStartup: /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon startLogin to the page, it's at port 9091Type in your password.
The password that's being overwritten is a hash.
The program is smarter than usual and detects that your password is not a hash, so it overwrites the password with the hash to be secure. So your password should work.
However, remember that it writes the password it loaded with when it shuts down. So doing/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon restart will not do what you expect if you've written the file while it's running.
