I followed this guide:


transmission works without problems but everytime I reboot the RaspberryPi I need to stop the service and then start again because it doesn't restart automatically.

With sudo service --status-all transmission-daemon has a "+" which should means that the service will start on startup. What to do?

  • Which step in the tutorial does it indicate that it will start on boot? – Mohammad Ali Sep 25 '16 at 19:21

If you use Raspbian Jessie add this to your /etc/rc.local file before "exit 0" string:

service transmission-daemon stop
sleep 10
service transmission-daemon start

Worked for me.

  • Please take note that using /etc/rc.local has limitations due to Compatibility with SysV. We have seen many problems here on this site using it. Following the recommendation of the developers from systemd you should avoid using it. – Ingo Jan 12 '20 at 10:10
