I have successfully installed transmission 1.73 via Optware.
It is working fine.
I just have one minor problem. Transmission is saving the files with root:root ownership.
The folder I use to save the torrents is /shares/internal/PUBLIC/torrent.
The ownership for this directory is www-data:www-data
Of course the main reason for transmission to save the files with root:root ownership it because I run it as root user.
Should I run it as www-data user ? This user does not have a root folder, so the configuration files cannot be saved.
Also how can I make transmission to run automatically through the /etc/init.d scripts, and set it to save to the correct save folder with the correct ownership ?
I would like to use www-data because it is the user that samba uses to export the public share.
Btw, I have a Blue Light MyBookWorld 1TB.
