Permission Denied (Transmission WebUI)

ca flag

So I have been playing with groups, users and permissions on my Home Server in order to use Transmission, to no avail.

I want to have my 'download' folder in my 'home' folder. Why? Because I have my external drive mounted to /home in order to have a larger library and my root folder is on the internal memory.

This is my ls -l output

total 16
drwsrwsrwx 2 debian-transmission drigy 4096 Mar 31 17:01 Movies
drwsrwsrwx 2 debian-transmission drigy 4096 Mar 31 17:01 Shows
drwsrwsrwx 2 debian-transmission drigy 4096 Mar 31 17:01 Sports
drwsrwsrwx 5 debian-transmission drigy 4096 Mar 31 17:38 data

Out of desperation, I have also set permissions to 777 recursively to all sub-directories.

At this point, I am out of ideas.

Welcome to AskUbuntu. If there is a permissions issue, your `/var/log/syslog` file will contain very specific details about the error. This will make it much easier to determine what needs to be done and in what order

By internal memory do you mean hard drive? A hard drive is not memory.

I kid you not, I woke up today, deleted syslog (may not have been of any consequence, just saying), checked transmission and it was working. No idea what happened. I appreciate you guys responding to my problem!

I have also changed debian-transmission in config to root.
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
