I've installed, configured and ran transmission-daemon on my CentOS 6 machine using
service transmission-daemon start
This works nicely, and I can see the web interface on
http://server.ip:9091 as I need to. The problem is, that several minutes later, it spontaneously stops. Never says anything, without warning or error message.
This happens even when I have no torrents active at all (as in, none on the list).
I have no idea what's wrong, and the error logs I thought of (which probably isn't much) show nothing.
How can I diagnose the causes for this? Has anyone else experienced a similar problem?
After the suggestion Martin gave me, I got the log. It goes like this: [03:07:02.182] Transmission 2.13 (11501) started (session.c:624) [03:07:02.182] RPC Server Adding address to whitelist: 127.0.0.1 (rpc-server.c:789) [03:07:02.182] RPC Server Serving RPC and Web requests on port 9091 (rpc-server.c:962) [03:07:02.182] DHT Generating new id (tr-dht.c:384) [03:07:02.182] Using settings from "/var/lib/transmission/.config/transmission-daemon" (daemon.c:483) [03:07:02.182] Saved "/var/lib/transmission/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json" (bencode.c:1683) [03:07:10.182] Port Forwarding State changed from "Not forwarded" to "???"

It hangs on that last one until it dies. Now I've looked into this question, but my settings file is already owned by
transmission, and even changing the permissions on the file to
775 didn't seem to have any effects.
