      I'm following Techno Dad's Transmission/OpenVPN guide and am hitting a few snags:

      I tried setting TRANSMISSION_WEB_UI to combustion and transmission-web-control however the interface doesn't change for Transmission.

      When I check the logs I see this block of permission related issues:

      mkdir: cannot create directory '/data/transmission-home': Read-only file system
      2019/04/14 13:25:46 unable to create open /data/transmission-home/settings.json: no such file or directory
      sed'ing True to true
      sed: can't read /data/transmission-home/settings.json: No such file or directory
      mkdir: cannot create directory '/data/transmission-home': Read-only file system
      mkdir: cannot create directory '/data/completed': Read-only file system
      mkdir: cannot create directory '/data/watch': Read-only file system
      Enforcing ownership on transmission config directories
      chown: cannot access '/data/transmission-home': No such file or directory
      Applying permissions to transmission config directories
      chmod: cannot access '/data/transmission-home': No such file or directory
      Setting owner for transmission paths to 1000:100
      chown: cannot access '/data/completed': No such file or directory
      chown: changing ownership of '/data/incomplete': Read-only file system
      chown: cannot access '/data/watch': No such file or directory
      Setting permission for files (644) and directories (755)
      chmod: cannot access '/data/completed': No such file or directory
      chmod: changing permissions of '/data/incomplete': Read-only file system
      chmod: cannot access '/data/watch': No such file or directory

      Shared Folders and Samba look setup properly, but between the above errors and the fact that the web interface isn't changing concerns me. Any thoughts on what I might be overlooking?
