    3 It's not always possible to set all configurations from the GUI, especially on the Daemon or the Web Interface. This guide will try to give an overview of how and what you can change. For the location of these files, look at the [ConfigFiles Configuration Files] page.
    4 See the list of [wiki:ConfigurationParameters Configuration Parameters].
     3The GUIs provide access to many but not all Client configuration properties. For some client and all Daemon configuration it is necessary to directly edit the Transmission Configuration File.
     4The location of this file may be found under the [userDocumentation User Documentation] for your system.
     5See the complete list of [wiki:ConfigurationParameters Configuration Parameters].

    6 Note: The client ''should'' be shutdown before making changes, otherwise settings will be reverted to it's previous state.

    13 === Reload Settings ===
    14 You can make the daemon reload the settings file by sending it the {{{SIGHUP}}} signal.[[BR]]
    15 Eg:
    16 {{{
    17 $ killall -HUP transmission-daemon
    18 }}}
    19 However bear in mind that if you edit settings whilst the daemon is running they may be overwritten.

    4849Mac OS X has a standardized way of saving user preferences files using [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML XML] format. These files are called [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plist plist] (short for property list) files. Usually there is no need to modify these files directly, since Apple provided a [http://developer.apple.com/DOCUMENTATION/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/defaults.1.html command-line tool] to reliably change settings. You do need to restart Transmission before these have effect.
