Install Transmission with web interface on CentOS 8.1

Transmission by default doesn’t have the web client enabled in it. However, the packages with the same names as on Debian based system are available via system repositories and  would work for you on CentOS 8.X Servers and Fedora 32 Servers and WKS. 

There could be many reasons why you might want to have Transmission web interface. One of these is when your office doesn’t allow access to torrents but you still wish to download them with only one intend to get the job done as soon as possible. 

$ sudo dnf install transmission-gtk transmission-cli \
   transmission-common transmission-daemon
$ sudo systemctl start transmission-daemon
$ sudo systemctl enable transmission-daemon
$ sudo systemctl status transmission-daemon

Tune configuration files have been created as follows
1. ~boris/.config/transmission/settings.json

2. /var/lib/transmission/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

 After the very first update :-
 $ sudo systemctl reload transmission-daemon

 Since then no more updates would be required for
 mentioned two settings.json files  even between the 
 cold system reboots  

   Make sure downloaded via torrents ISO images are located as expected
