Hi there. I just installed Transmission and got it up and running with the following settings

    "alt-speed-down": 50, 
    "alt-speed-enabled": false, 
    "alt-speed-time-begin": 540,

    "speed-limit-up": 200, 
    "speed-limit-up-enabled": true, 
    "umask": 0, 
    "upload-slots-per-torrent": 14

The problem that I'm running into is that when I go to /media/media/downloads and try to move a file to its appropriate folder, I get the following error...

You need permission to perform this action

You require permission from Unix User\debian-transmission to make changes to this file.

I'm running Ubuntu and all commands need to be run through shell.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, so my OLD settings.json file had UMASK = 18 My NEW settings.json file has UMASK = 0

I also did a sudo chmod -R 777 /media/media/Downloads

now everything is accessable and working.

I'd really like to see FULL config override abilities from the WEB GUI rather than in a settings file. Just makes more sense.

Please reopen if this is still an issue and a Transmission bug.
