403 Forbidden Error

Post by Mobius1 »

I know there are a few topics concerning this error, but none of them have solved it for me.

I've just move to a new dedicated server which I have Ubuntu 10.10 as the OS. I did have Centos 5.7 running on this server and I could access the webui and connect with transmission-remote, but since installing Ubuntu 10.10, I get this error.

contents of /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json:

that isn't default value for new Ubuntu or Debian installs, so i suspect you edited /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json with the transmission-daemon still running, and the therefore the changes are not in effect. try doing this in terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon reload
which sends a SIGHUP and updates the current settings file.

also you have rpc-authentication-required as true, so the web-interface should prompt you for username and password.
