Install transmission daemon on CentOS7

Step 1. First, you need to enable EPEL repository on your system.

yum install epel-release
yum -y update

Step 2. Installing Transmission.
Just run the following command to install Transmission:

yum install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon

Once complete, you can verify Transmission is installed by running the below command:

systemctl start transmission-daemon.service
systemctl stop transmission-daemon.service

Step 3. Configuration Transmission.
Edit the transmission settings.json config file:

nano /var/lib/transmission/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

OK now let’s edit the settings (to your liking) and don’t forget to save.

"rpc-authentication-required": true,
"rpc-enabled": true,
"rpc-password": "mypassword",
"rpc-username": "mysuperlogin",
"rpc-whitelist-enabled": false,
"rpc-whitelist": "",

After editing and saving the settings.json file, start the transmission daemon:

systemctl start transmission-daemon.service

Step 4. Accessing Transmission.
Transmission BitTorrent Client will be available on HTTP port 9091 by default. Open your favorite browser and navigate to or http://server-ip:9091. You should be greeted with the Transmission WebUI. After logging in, you will notice that the value for the rpc-password inside the settings.json file will be hashed. If you are using a firewall, please open port 80 to enable access to the control panel.
