I have just setup a ubuntu server, on this server i installed transmission so i can download torrents from the web-ui. Transmission works great! Today i got the idea that i wanted to download to an external hard drive. I mounted the hard drive and set transmission to download to the dedicated folder i made on the external drive. But of course transmission does not have permissions to write to the external drive.
How can i solve this? Can i run transmission as "root" user which should have permissions?
I hope that you can help me. Thanks a lot!
