Transmission-deamon dedicated log file

You may want to have a dedicated logfile for transmission-deamon.

Under debian system, you can achieve this by editing the file /etc/transmission-daemon, and add a directive to specify the log file (using -e option, as explained in man transmission-daemon(1)).

The OPTIONS directive of the file should look like:

OPTIONS="--config-dir $CONFIG_DIR -e /var/log/transmission-daemon.log"

Notice that transmission may not be allowed to create the log file, so you must (as root):

# touch /var/log/transmission-daemon.log
# chown debian-transmission:debian-transmission /var/log/transmission-deamon.log
# service transmission-deamon restart

And voilĂ !
