[Transmission] single download list for each user

#1

Hello everyone

All the users on my YNH server who have access to the Transmission app sees everything on the app, all the downloads of everyone.
I am trying to find a way so the user only sees it’s own download list and files.
I am thinking of installing another Transmission app, like mydomain.com/transmission2.
I can’t install another Transmission app from the app installation webpage.
Would it be safe to install another Transmission app from the github link, or from the CLI, if possible? I prefer asking before breaking anything…

Thanks!

Well I guess that’s heavily related to how the transmission software works, there is just no concept of “per user” session with this software … I don’t think you can easily find a workaround for this. The reason that you can’t install multiple instance of transmission is also related to how the software works itself (it’s a debian package which can’t be installed multiple times).

I don’t think there’s any cool fix for this except develop or use a different torrent app that supports different users :confused:

Hey

I may have find a way to install another torrent application, https://github.com/e-alfred/ocdownloader, a Nextcloud application. But this app needs Aira2 to work (https://github.com/e-alfred/ocdownloader#aria2-installation).

Is it safe to install Aria2 without breaking anything on the YNH server ? I’ve no idea.
Would be wonderful.
Thanks for the feedback!
